I was in the mood for a fruity green tea this morning and so I decided to try my hand at custom blending!
This was made up of 1.5 teaspoons of Sencha Jade Reserve by Teavana, .5 teaspoons of Orange Grapefruit Fruit Tisane by Fusion Tea Room (thanks for the sample!), and .5 teaspoons of Fresh Green Mate by Mate Factor (to help wake me up). I figured the mate would be best mixed with a green tea because it’s unroasted, and I knew that I had a lot of Sencha left to brew up, and I wanted to try to do something with the tisanes that I got from Fusion Tea Room. So, this monster was created!
The verdict: eh. Just eh. I know the reason is that there wasn’t enough orange grapefruit and too much sencha. Next time I do this combo, I’m going to do 1 teaspoon of sencha and 1 teaspoon of the tisane, and the same amount of mate to provide just a little kickstart. I think that that will elevate the flavors.
