So I have been having a lot of fun creating my own blends from teas I have access to recently. Today I used a Coffee Pu’erh, Red Velvet Cake and about 1 tsp of peppermint and added honey and soy milk and i swear to god it tasted just like a peppermint mocha. Well, ok, not JUST like, but for like 40 calories I’ll take it! Anyone else have any great ideas for blends? I know there was a thread about this a month or two ago but I don’t know if it’s ok to bump old threads.

I’m going to try blending forever nuts and sleigh ride today. Not too adventurous but still exciting.

I mixed (both numi) 1 bag each of Moroccan Mint and Chocolate pu erh teas.
was close to a mint chip flavor. the chocolate pu erh tea stand alone, with milk resembles cocoa.

I love our Milk Black mixed with either our Cherry Pu’erh or Strawberry Pu’erh. The flavors bring me back to childhood even though I was never really a milk drinker.

Teavangelical, I’ve bumped quite a few old threads and no one has mentioned that I shouldn’t or has displayed any annoyance about it.

So far my blends have been either somewhat ok or downright nasty. Usually if 1 or both teas are kind of boring and I want to make it more drinkable.

I’ve blended a little. Like have a little Teasource roasted chestnut with Darjeeling. Or Adding a pinch of lavender with Earl Grey or a tisane like Evening in Missoula.

Last night I decided to try making a cold tea… Cheated by tearing open two bagged teas (Celestial seasoning Sleepytime w/ Sinus relief and Traditional Medicinals Cold relief PM) put in some ginger, whole cloves, anise seed, fennel seed, eucalyptus leaf, chamomile, lavender… Forget what else and put it in a couple DIY drawstring sachets. Tasted ok.

I got some teas I’m thinking mixing, like ETS chocolate with the roasted chestnut, and some Earl Greys that might be fun to mix.

Thanks but I’m not so bad. My mother on the other hand has a bad case of bronchitis. So I’m doing what I can to prevent getting sick.

Just reused the leaves from ETS Versailles Lavender Earl Grey with some ETS chocolate orange. Came out pretty good, orangey, hint of chocolate.
