Anyone have any favorite flavored tea combinations?

Vanilla & mint is one of my favorite combos. Also vanilla & apple cinnamon are good together--kind of like apple pie ala mode. Guess I've got the same pattern except with vanilla instead of chocolate...

I don't have any chocolate. ::sniffle:: I wonder if I did, and tried mixing it with the pumpkin spice and gingerbread, I'd like them better. I think their flavor is too weak for me alone, and I decided to just order another sample of pumpkin. What do you think, does the chocolate make the flavor come through any more? I hate that the holiday teas are only sold...during the holidays.

Henley, your suggestions sound good also. Do you do it with rooibos or black tea or something else?

Well, I do that to tone down the flavors, so YMMV.

I'm a black tea drinker but have have used vanilla rooibos in a pinch. I'm getting a lot of samples for Cmas (ordered them then gave them to hubby to put under the tree) so I'm looking forward to experimenting with more combos. Thinking of trying vanilla & orange but I'm not sure how a warm dreamsicle would taste... Also thought about combining my hot cinnamon spice with orange. Can you tell I like playing?

BTW, I ordered the holiday sampler last week & was still able to get it so if someone's interested, it may not be too late.
