Today – continuing on the theme of mixing my own teas.

Into my Breville:

1200 mL H20
8 Mini Tuo Chas
4 Teaspoons of SpecialTeas Autumn Harvest Fruit Melange

10 Minute steep + Basket Cycle

I split each Tua Cha in half in order to strengthen the tea a bit. This mix is a bit riskier than yesterday, I’ll let you know how it turns out.

Upping my rating to 95 just for the versatility I have found using this tea.

Update: Oh my – we have a winner! This is a perfect mix!

Getting tired of my tea collection, so this time i decided to blend it up!

In my Breville went 1200 mL of water, 7 mini Tuo Chas, and 2 teaspoons of CherryVana cherry fruit melange.

Cherry Pu Erh – It just went in for its 10 minute steep. I’ll report back on the result.

EDIT: Well – I’m on the fence there just wasnt enough cherry flavor (cherry is a difficult flavor to capture). What flavor there was was delicious. This idea of mixing in my fruit
melanges has a lot of promise.

Next time im going to use more melange, and another flavor.

EDIT2: This is actually really good. It has grown on me.

Yep, and sugar too. Works flawlessly. I do run a clean cycle afterward though
