Black Fruit Herbal Blend
Product description not available yet.
One teaspoon Hazelnut black tea (Adagio), one teaspoon Chocolate black tea (also Adagio), and a pinch of peppermint (Luka Te m. m.)
Experiment fail. Wildly mediocre. That is all.
Haha reminds me when I mixed darjeeling, assam and keemun together. Hey, a lot of companies do it! Yeah, total disaster. Worse sip ever.
Well, this is drinkable. But it’s certainly not particularly interesting.
Haha, you are a better blender than I am =D
Yeah, what Ricky said. At least you have the guts to blend… I don’t!
It can be fun, but also a bit risky. :p I’ve also done it sometimes if I didn’t have enough of something for a full pot (my preferred pot isn’t very big, it’s just about half a liter) I can put in something else to increase the amount of leaves. It’s just a question of finding something that fits. Like for example if you have something flavoured with a type of berry, another type of fruit will usually work. If it’s strongly flavoured, even something plain. If it isn’t strongly flavoured, you can still use a plain one with it, but the flavouring might get overpowered. If you just use left-overs it doesn’t feel as much like a waste of leaves if it doesn’t work.
I wonder if it would work better if you added a fruit, like a strawberry tea? At least, chocolate/hazelnut/strawberry crepes taste great, and strawberry/mint can be quite fun…
But add me to the list of ‘too cowardly to blend’
Personally I think I should have left out the mint. It works well with the chocolate alone, but together with the hazelnut something just seemed… off. Chocolate and a fruit would definitely work though.
Aww. I have a custom blend fail as well…I mixed Harney & Sons Chocolate Mint black with H&S Vanilla black….gag
Yeah, it seems to me that if one want to use mint, it can only be together with one other flavour. With chocolate alone it’s nice. With vanilla alone it was surprisingly nice also. But together, yeah, that sounds like flavour war.
rooibos + lapsong + ginger. YUM.
I like adding mint to my green teas, it’s a lovely combination that was inspired by a flavor called “Kyoto Mint” that combined matcha, sencha & mint. :}
