Shameless plug alert — I’m the creator of this Adagio custom blend. It was my first time trying to formulate a blend and believe me when I tell you that this was pure beginner’s luck. To find it in Adagio’s blend section, you have to search for it by tea name (Green Chamoflage) or by creator (Phil Hovatter).

And yes, I know that Chamoflage is misspelled, but that was intentional to reflect the ingredients of the tea: 50% Green Pekoe + 20% Chamomile + 30% Mango Melange = Green Chamoflage.

This tea is good through three infusions. The first infusion produces a pinkish liquor due to the presence of some blood orange in the Mango Melange part of the blend. The blood orange also gives the first infusion a hint of tartness, offset by the sweetness of the mango. All in all, the first infusion is definitely the most fruity. I like it.

The second and third infusions have the fruitiness and pinkness cooked out of them. This is when the chamomile steps up to the plate and begins to assert itself — rich, mellow, and fragrant. I typically steep the second infusion for five minutes and the third infusion for up to seven minutes.

This is just one crazy tasty little blend. I’m a heart attack survivor on a low caffeine diet, so the 50% green tea – 50% herbal mixture is low in caffeine by design. Makes a great nighttime tea, but be sure to stay awake for the second infusion.

I struck gold with this first attempt at crafting a blend. Everyone I’ve served it to likes it a lot. This is one that I will always have in my cupboard. Stop by and I’ll brew you a cup.
