So I created an entry for Butiki’s herbal blending box.
Since I’m the last stop on its journey, I wanted to account for the significant amount of ingredients in the box in at least some small way in my cupboard, and I also wanted somewhere to log what I make in a consistent way that I can look up.
This is my first experiment with blending my own tea! I’m very excited about it!
Here’s what I mixed:
1 1/2 tsp of Cloves
1/2 tsp of cinnamon chips
1/2 tsp of dried carrot
1 anise star pod
I started with the clove because it’s something I really, really like and then I just sort of built around it and hoped for the best. The result was this kind of sort of chai like blend? It’s very sweet from the anise, with strong notes of clove (obviously) and just this very light presence of the cinnamon and carrot in the background. It kind of tastes like Spice Cake or Carrot Cake, actually! Very very good!
For my first herbal blend I definitely have to call this one a success!
