Mixing teas – Get creative by combining your flavored teas
It is said that your customers often give you the best ideas. I have had many customers tell me that they combine 2 or more of our flavored teas together to create their own recipes. Customers are mixing black teas with green teas and even rooibos. I guess I was too much of a purist to try such combinations in the past, but I couldn’t resist their suggestions and was pleasantly surprised at the results. I realize now that, as long as you enjoy the taste, there is no wrong combination. I even had one customer at the Friday Downtown Market in Tampa ask for 3/4 cup of Assam Chai mixed with 1/4 cup of Lemon Ginger Green. If you have ever tasted either of these two teas or similar, you would probably wonder how anything good could come out of such a combination, but she loved the taste.
My advice is to get creative and mix flavors and tea types that you normally would not consider. We are currently considering adding a product to our store that combines black tea, green tea and natural flavoring from multiple fruits. If you have a recipe that you want to share, please send it to us, and we will gladly post it on our recipe blog.
