I am knew to mixing different types of loose leaf. I imagine there are some really great combinations. I guess I’ve never done it much because I was nervous that I would need to mix them a few times to get it right and I really didn’t want to waste tea, but the other day I was perusing Fava Tea’s website and I saw a great suggestion. They said that their tea “Bee’s Knee’s, which is a black tea blend with bee pollen honey, and their Apricot black tea, blend really well together! I was intrigued. Apricot and honey almost always goes really well together!
1tsp of Bee’s Knees and 1tsp of Apricot and steeped it in hot water for about 3 minutes. I then added just the smallest splash of agave and gave it a whiff. It smelled like warm apricots and gooey honey! The taste wasn’t so far off from that. The first thing I noticed was honey, then the smooth and refreshing black tea, followed by sweet and juicy apricots. This blend is really good! Both the teas are yummy and together they are sensational. This is definitely something that would taste great iced in the summer. I really suggest you check it out!

I am the creator of the Facebook group CommuniTEA where we have one big tea discussion. It is a great group for those new to the tea-world. I feel strongly about spreading the joy of loose leaf tea. I like making instructional videos and helping those that are new to the art of tea-making so that they, too, can share in the happiness that tea brings. I am excited to see where this hobby takes me and I will continue to spread the joy!
