Beauxbaton’s Blend (Organic Elderberry Vanilla Black Tea)

This entry is part 7 of 10 in the series Potterverse Beverages

‘Beauxbaton’s Blend’ started because a client was mourning a favourite tea. This was early on in our experimentation with tasty teas, so I wasn’t positive that I could do it, but I was more than willing to give it a shot. She sent a sample of the original tea, and Continue Reading →

Mom’s Mate (Organic Mate Rooibos Black Tea Blend with Spices)

We have a habit of recreating teas that other companies discontinue, as our clientele knows we can find the taste they were missing, though our versions are usually proclaimed as far better than the originals. ‘Mom’s Mate’ started as a small bag filled with tea for us to test, and Continue Reading →

Earlderberry Grey (Organic Elderberry Earl Grey Tea)

‘Earlderberry Grey’ was created due to a couple of factors.  The first is that Elderberries are so lovely, both in taste and in health benefits that I wanted to have as many options as possible involving them.  No matter your personal preferences, unless it is just hating fruit in beverages, I Continue Reading →

Triforce Tea (Organic Roasted Mate, Rooibos, and Black Tea)

This entry is part 2 of 9 in the series 8 Bit Beverages

Sometimes when we are asked to create a custom tea, there’s an odd first step that has to be taken.  Especially when we are asked to recreate a favourite tea that has been discontinued. As a general rule, we are rather staggered by the sheer number of ingredients some of Continue Reading →

Leia’s Legacy (Organic Cinnamon Black Tea)

This entry is part 1 of 3 in the series Star Wars Beverages

Mister Tea and I have been mildly embarrassed for quite some time regarding our lack of anything attached to Star Wars. I’m not entirely certain why it took us over two years to get around to blending one, though the fact that creating new teas counts as ‘playing’ and isn’t Continue Reading →

Ravensong (Organic Chocolate Keemun Tea with Rosehips and Elderberries)

‘Ravensong’ is one of a pair of teas that were the result of the loving exhortations of a couple of friends of mine. It was pointed out that I spend a lot of time and energy taking care of other people, and helping them as much as I can, but…. Continue Reading →

Hello Sweetie (Organic Chocolate Chile Chai)

This entry is part 1 of 4 in the series Doctor Who Beverages

Combining our love for tea and our love of geekery is one of the lovely things Desert Sage Natural allows us to do. Once we began making teas to salute the Who-ni-verse I found myself pondering various characters, wanting to create tastes for them.  In considering River, I decided she Continue Reading →

Rebecca’s Rose (Organic Rose Black Tea)

One of the beautiful things about the work that we do is the connections we make with our customers.  From conversations about what types of tastes and teas someone prefers, to the deeper interactions regarding medicinal teas and the reasons they are needed – we value the interactions. Sometimes the Continue Reading →

Jerry Cordial (Organic Cherry Cordial Inspired Tea)

This entry is part 3 of 13 in the series ChariTeas

Cherry cordials are a bit of a family tradition for Mister Tea.  They are a favorite candy for his grandfather, and early in our relationship there were several years that near Christmas we spent a decent chunk of time trying to find cherry cordials that we felt would be ‘good Continue Reading →

Tea at Pemberley (Lavender Earl Grey)

I love making tea.  This is not something that can really be questioned.  I love the process of creating a new taste that makes people happy.  I find a special sort of joy in still being able to be that strange combination of creative and useful that taking a request Continue Reading →
