Making tea is not only a process of preparing the perfect blend of ingredients for enjoyment; it is also a moment to have fun while doing the same. It gets even more wonderful when you have a variety of ingredients and extracts to choose from so that the tea tastes as good as you need it, or better yet, as you imagine it. I followed the BlendBee make your own tea page, and sure enjoyed my time all the way.
My Sun Downer
It was during one of those days you come home from a hectic day and all you want is a cold shower followed by a nice and hot cup of tea to calm the body and spirit. So, after the shower, I was torn between making a cup of tea or ordering one from my favorite tea site, BlendBee. So I decided to do both! And speaking of satisfaction, nothing else would grace the evening better than herbal tea to sooth the day’s stress as I see the sun go down.
I started by choosing the ¼ lb custom tea option. Then I selected the ingredients. Green tea as a base, of course! Then some jasmine. And then, since green tea can be bitter, I added some flavors to sweeten it up. Agrimony herb was a nice option in order to give the blend a light lemon scent and a taste close to apricots.
Next, I added some bilberry leaf in order to enhance its light flavor. To escape from the lemon taste by giving the tea a sweet taste, I added some carob beans. These gave my tea a chocolate taste and blended well with the lemon flavor. Finally, I added peppermint to make the tea strong and spicy as well as enhance my physical endurance for the evening’s cold.
With all the ingredients in my online shopping cart, I placed my order happy and excited for the tea to arrive. A couple days later my beautifully presented package arrived on my porch. I gave the blend a good steeping before serving it hot in a cup and sitting out at the porch yet again watching the sun disappear in the horizon. Ahhhhhh.
