Smells pretty awful but tastes wonderful! Tart, sweet, fruity, vanilla comes through lightly giving a creamy flavor to the fruit and the mint is only an undertone – not in your face at all but very fresh and summery.
Why you may ask this combination? I was bored. I wanted something minty but that seemed a little MEH and I was hungry too so wanted something heavier. I would have done just the tisane but its so tart on its own, wanted to mellow it some, also there is no TEA in it!
BAM this was born.

you’re an official tea blender now! ;)

Dylan Oxford

So when do we start buying Azz’s custom blends ;)

Azzrian

haha well not official as I did just blend to teas by OHTHER blenders however one day I shall buy some base teas and begin that journey. For now I have a lot of other roads to explore :)
I am anxious though because I have over 2 grand in essential oils to play with!

Missy

whistle Look at you Azz!

Indigobloom

OoooOoh, fun!

Dylan Oxford

… you have over $2000 in essential oils????

Kittenna

Sounds interesting!!

Azz, do you have suggestion for bergamot oil to flavour tea? I buy primarily from New Directions and was wondering if I should select the organic version. Plus how much to add? I’ve heard suggestion to use a drop at the end of a toothpick but to how much tea leaves, or is that to a cup of brewed tea? And if to dry leaves, how to blend? Maybe in a small sack in the dryer on tumble only?
To Dylan, it is VERY easy to spend that much on essential oils. I have that much and I’m not even an aromatherapist. Rose oil and Jasmine sambuca absolutes would necessitate me to take out a mortgage. LOL. (I wouldn’t really, so have sufficed with dilutions).

Azzrian

LOL so true ChaMei they are not cheap – I too buy from New Directions! I have not yet tried mixing or blending teas with EO’s but I would assume that they mean one drop per cup or gram or something like that.
Then again its also a preference thing right? Maybe have levels of bergamot – Easy Earl having the least, Ernest Earl having a fair amount, Extreme Earl the most. or something like that. I mean I don’t know if there are any hard set rules to how much bergamot in tea.
As for drying – again I have never tired this but I like your idea however I would prefer myself a more natural approach when possible I would probably play around with different bases finding the one that was both good and also absorbed the oil well enough that it would finish drying on its own without having to be tossed in the dryer. But again I have no clue what I am talking about here AT ALL.
Now if you need any medicinal advice lol let me know :)
Note: I am not a doctor (I think I have to say that legally)

I have never ingested E.O., although I know you can. In fact, Australian aborinals have medicinally used tea tree oil ( Leptospermem spp.) so called because billabong waters that had overhanging tea trees turned a tea-like brown color when the leaves dropped into the water pool.
I thought of using my laundry dryer because I think commercial operations tumble tea leaves to distribute flavours, not to dry them (I imagine they are already dry). I look forward to sharing blend ideas. I think it’s funny that bergamot was originally added to mask moldy tea and now we now use to create new flavours.

ChaMei

Argh, driving me nuts I can’t edit misspelling of Leptospermum. There, I guess I just did. In fact, I would love to italicize it for correctness’ sake. LOL.

Azzrian

LOL!
My concern about using a laundry dryer is that there may be things in it left behind by say detergents even though they are rinsed in the washer but also dryer sheets etc. I would think if that were a good method one would need a brand new dryer for just that purpose but again this is what I THINK lol.
I have no idea really.
Maybe I should play around a little this weekend if I have time.
End of month is always crazy for me with work.
Now as for ingesting EO’s SOME you can some you can not.
I have some EOs here in my collection that are literally deadly.
However, we use a lot of them daily for things from safe cleaning products to food flavorings, spices etc.
I live by Tea Tree Oil – that stuff is the best thing on earth!
If I could only have one oil for the rest of my life this would be it!
It tastes nasty but good for a lot of things!
Oh and as for scientific names lol forget about it I don’t know them myself although I am supposed to. Im not a brainiac.
I will start a PM with you and we can talk more about blending:)
