Adventures in Tea Mixing
This isn't my normal crafty post, but if you know me, you know I love tea. That's one of the many things I have in common with my Aunt. ;) Earlier this month my Aunt gave me a tea mixing kit for my birthday (Thanks!).
I drink both bagged and loose leaf tea, but I hadn't tried mixing up my own loose leaf tea before now. The kit came with a variety of teas and herbs.
Mint is my favorite tea (right after good old black tea) so I decided to start with making my own mint tea. The "scoops" are teaspoon-ish sized. In my tea bag I put:
- 2 scoops of black tea
- 1 scoop of white tea
- 1 scoop of mint leaves
- a sprinkle of dried rose petals.
I have fresh mint growing in my garden, so I took a small branch of it and placed it in my teapot as well.
The taste of the mint and rose petals mixed so well together, I don't think I'd tried rose tea before now but it was interesting! I don't think I'd want too much of it, it's a bit flower-y. It was good combined with the mint though.
Are you a tea lover like me? What's your favorite tea? I'd love to know!
