I'm a tea junkie. I mean, if the the end of the world ever came and those Doomsday Preppers forgot to stock up on tea, I would have something to trade and bargain with. Tea for your can of soup sir?
I thought it would be fun to have a few gals over for a little tea party but instead of offering them my collection of pre-mixed teas I set up a small little table for everyone to mix their own flavors. Loads of fun! Here are a few photos of what I had left over.
I printed out this steeping guide and taped it to the wall and had a couple of plates of stuff of plain and mixed full leave teas (black, rooibos, green, mixed herbal) and a few add ins: rose hips, mango and apple pieces, camomile flowers, hibiscus flowers, dried blueberry and blackberry, small bits of chocolate, chopped cinnamon pieces. From there I labeled with masking tape and let everyone get creative with their flavors. This way the gals could adjust the strengths and flavors to their little hearts' desires.
So fun! As you can tell it was picked almost clean.
Have you ever mixed your own teas before?
