(2-97) Porridge Tea

This entry is part 2 of 2 in the series Tea Naming

I get tea ideas from a long list of places. One of the more common ones is people talking about food on Twitter. I’ll see a description and the flavour combination (or the bits of it that could be applied to tea) spark the thought of “I bet this would Continue Reading →

Snickerdoodle (Black Tea inspired by Snickerdoodles)

A long time ago, when Desert Sage Natural was first beginning, we put together a list of seasonal teas.  We asked some of our friends to assist, and had a wonderful list. However, we were learning a lot of things rather swiftly, and much of our time was taken up Continue Reading →

Cinn-Ful (Inspired by Cinnamon Rolls)

Last year we collected a number of suggestions for seasonal teas.  Life being what it is, the best window for blending and listing them passed us by.

When September Ends (Organic Pumpkin Spice Black Tea)

SereniTea: River to Book (Organic Tea for ADHD)

This entry is part 3 of 1 in the series Firefly/Serenity Beverages

Our ‘SereniTea:  River to Book” is an organic herbal mood tea blended to assist with mood leveling, anxiety, and depression.

Migraine Mitigator (All Versions) (Organic Teas for Headaches and Migraines)

Migraines plague many of the people I know.  Family, friends – one would almost think they were infectious.  They are so common, generally, that this was the first tea we blended for someone outside of our household. MIster Tea called me, and explained that the gent training him as a Continue Reading →
