As you might have noticed, we recently launched a range of new products. One of those products includes a blend your own tea kit! Our kit comes with a selection of ingredients to get you started. But of course, we encourage creativity – experiment further by adding your own ingredients. Our kit allows you to create your perfect cup of tea. If you’re looking for inspiration, look no further. We’ve got a few recipes here to help give you some ideas.
1) Tropical Green
Use our kit with the green tea base and combine 2 teaspoons of the green tea with 1 teaspoon of dried pineapple. If you would like extra flavour, we recommend adding a teaspoon of dried mango and a little bit of shredded coconut too. If you don’t like a green tea, try it with your favourite! Pu’erh and white are great substitutions.
2) Lavender Chamomile
This one is super easy, just mix equal parts of chamomile and lavender. You can drink it this way or if you prefer, add it to a tea base! Experiment with the amounts to get your perfect balance. You could even add extra ingredients such as vanilla extract.
3) Minty Hibiscus
For this one we recommend using satemwa hibiscus as your base. It’s absolutely divine in colour and in taste. Simply mix 2 teaspoons of dried hibiscus with 1 teaspoon of spearmint (or use mint leaves) and 1 teaspoon of lemongrass.
4) Toffee Apple
Try mixing our black tea with cardamom, cinnamon, dried apple pieces and a little bit of orange extract. We’re leaving the quantities up to you, so you can decide how strong you like it! If you prefer your tea a little smoky, use lapsang souchong,
5) Peach Punch
Combine our black tea with dried peach pieces – perfectly simple! Try adding floral notes for a more earthy taste. You can do this by adding rosehip, rose petals and pink peppercorns.
6) Best of Both
Of course, you do not have to stick to one tea. You can blend teas together! Our kits come with a black or green tea base, and you could always combine the two with your favourite ingredients. We recommend blending, Japanese sencha with Ceylon black tea. If you like a nutty flavour, throw in some almond pieces and maybe a couple of unsalted pistachios. The only limit is your imagination!
Hopefully you might have got some inspiration from this blog, but there are endless combinations that you can make. We’d love to hear them too! If you’ve got a great one, share it with us – we might even share it on our website or social media!
