Tea Blend Hacks for Tea Lovers

“A cup of tea is like life, it’s all in how you make it.”

There is nothing better than a refreshing glass of iced tea on a hot summer’s day or a hot cup of tea on a cold winter’s eve. Have you ever wondered what it would be like to blend your own teas? You can learn to make your own tea blends—or if blending your own teas doesn’t sound like anything you’re really into, use our recipes to make it easy! Stop standing aimlessly in front of the shelves at the grocery store and build your own herbal tea blends at home.

Investing in a box of tea commits you to one flavor for a the life of the box—you’ll probably buy a new box before you’ve used it all. And for the price of that one box of tea you can make many flavors yourself. You can mix it up having your own base and adding in the flowers, herbs, spices, and fruits you wish.

Keep in mind that the following recipes can be decaffeinated or caffeinated. All you need to do is change out the base flavor as we explain in the articles. You can begin with simple black, green, white, or oolong tea (or even start with Rooibos or mate, if you prefer). Choose a caffeinated tea if you’d like a little pick-me-up in your mug. If you aren’t looking for a kick in your mug, then all-herbal is the way to go. The important thing is the decision is TOTALLY UP TO YOU!line-separator-green
