Tea- magination!!

Filed under: Tea in Arizona — Kwingert @ 10:15 am


… all you need when it comes to creating your own tea blends.  The most important tools in tea blending are your taste buds and once you have tried a number of different teas and flavors, you might want to experiment by combining one, two or three teas. It’s like cooking – you start with a base recipe but may want to add a little spice or a different herbal note. There is no limit to what you can do.

Since we started to mix and match our  many different teas at the store to create fabulous new flavors, our customers have caught on and surprise us now with their own creations. Susan is one of our regulars and likes a cup of smokey Lapsang Souchong. To change up the flavor profile a bit, she adds a pinch or two to Souvia’s Caramel Apple Black tea. “It smells and tastes like you just roasted a caramel drizzled apple over an open fire – delish!” The ratio Susan uses is 1 part Lapsang to 5 parts of Caramel Apple to make sure the smokiness does not become too overpowering.

Her second and  more favorite combo, especially for the warmer season, is a blend of Sencha Mango and Green Menthos. She blends 1-2 parts of Green Menthos to 3 parts of Sencha Mango – a tropical flavor with a minty freshness!

Thank you Susan for these great recipes!

If you have any ideas or favorite tea creations, send them to so we can share them with the rest of the tea lovers out there!
