Hey there! Are you currently drinking more than one of your teas together at the same time? Do you have a great recipe for a blend of two or more things in your cabinet? Post about it here.

I found this thread when searching about homemade tea blends. Found this on you tube:

And then there was this webpage:

Some of them sound interesting. Teavanna has some of theirs that can be blended together too. I don’t have any Teavanna teas but it could be used as a base of what to mix together.

Lemon Verbena sounds like a really nice herb to add to some basic teas to get a different flavour.

I lovemixing my Ruby Pie from Butiki with Strawberry Rhubarb from DavidsTea – the Ruby adds the graham flavour and tea base, while the SR is a herbal, so lots of tartness! I love them together.

Also, when I still had a rose tea, I would mix it with any chocolate and strawberry teas to make a blend reminiscent of David’s Love Tea #7, it always turned out good, and you could change the blend depending on what you were craving!

Sounds great! I don’t have those teas but it does give me ideas for my existing one.

One of my everyday blends is keemun black, plain oolong (an oxidized one), and vanilla rooibos. It resteeps really well and jazzes up the plain oolong. I use Touch Organic Black looseleaf, Stash YMY Oolong, and Adagio vanilla rooibos.

Interesting! What temperature do you steep it with 3 different teas in there?

Here’s one I just made: boil in a pot fresh ginger, cloves, cardamon, cinnamon stick pieces, and chamomile for about 5-7 mins. Remove from heat and steep an Indian black tea for 3 mins. Add almond milk and sugar. Boom. Book time chai.

Mmmm Sounds delicious. I don’t suppose you have measurements for the spices and chamomile? I never had almond milk with my tea before. I drink it all the time but just never added it to tea.
