In 2017 TeaSource is shining a spotlight on tea blends, both in-store and on the web. We’ll feature and discount tea blends throughout the year. We’ll have workshops on blending your own teas. We’ll be posting numerous blog posts throughout the year on tea blends and blending, and we’ll introduce 8-10 new tea blends throughout 2017.
So, what is a tea blend? A tea blend is a combination of a straight tea (from Camellia sinensis) and something else. It can be a combination of straight teas, all from Camellia sinensis, like English Breakfast. Or it can be a straight tea blended with almost anything else: fruits, flavors, spices, herbs, candies, roots, vegetables, ad infinitum.
