Teapocalypse (The Sets and some Ramblings)

This entry is part 1 of 1 in the series Gift and Sample Sets

Mister Tea and I have histories that lead to a certain understanding that the worst can actually happen. We try not to be too paranoid about it, but various possibilities come up in discussion.  Some of it is intellectual exercise, some of it partial planning, some of it just plain Continue Reading →

Weasleys’ Winter Warmup (Organic Ginger Vanilla Black Tea)

This entry is part 8 of 2 in the series Potterverse Beverages

  The fall and winter season provoked us to revisit an old list of teas we had wanted to blend.  Seasonal teas, as least in concept. Knowing how thoroughly some of these flavours are loved, however, we will not be taking these down when the season is done. Weasleys’ Winter Continue Reading →

SereniTea: Mellow Breeze (Organic Mint Anti-Anxiety Tea)

  Our SereniTeas are teas formulated to assist with the mind and emotions. Many of our teas in this group are for dealing with stress and anxiety.  There are a sizable number of herbs that can help with the issues in question, so the choice comes down to more subtle Continue Reading →

S.H.I.E.L.D. (Strengthening and Healing Immunity Everyday for Life Defense)

This tea came out of a request for advice on rebuilding a weakened immune system.  A much loved parent was catching every bug that wandered nearish him. I understood the situation entirely, and empathized.  The recovery from my illness was followed by years of “Do I even have an immune 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 →

Hershel’s Gift

‘Hershel’s Gift’ started with a different name, as a cold and flu tea that just about anyone would be willing to drink. I have always loved that elderberries are effective for both types of illness, given how amazing they taste.  We have some elderberry syrup that is mostly used on Continue Reading →

Fever-B-Gone (Fever Reducing Tea)

Fever-B-Gone was created for one of those basic needs.  Fevers happen, and depending on the day and the reason, need to be brought down. Unfortunately, I hadn’t thought to make a febrifuge until I was actually in the throes of a fever.  I’d realized I was getting a little loopy 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. We’d added them to the tea ideas list, and I had mostly forgotten about them.  There were specific requests, and new ideas sprouting Continue Reading →

Bone Binder (Organic Herbal Tea for Bone Health and Healing)

Bone Binder was created because Mister Tea had a class with a guy who had a really bad accident.  There were broken bones, there were liver issues from an infection, and there was a complication due to antibiotics used in the hospital. Desert Sage Natural came up in conversation, and Continue Reading →

AnTeaInfection (Organic Anti-Bacterial, Anti-Viral, Anti-Fungal Tea)

Antibiotics are a brilliant thing, they revolutionized medicine, and raised life expectancy. However, the way they are used these days is a pet peeve of mine.  They are over-prescribed, often for things they will do nothing for.  They are put into the food of the animals we eat in frightening Continue Reading →
