Creating Signature Blends

I'm new here but am really interested in creating a blend and I am looking for a little guidance. Are there any guidelines in determining the percentage of each tea to use in the blend?

There are not any specific guidelines regarding percentages for blending your tea. Its all about what flavor you want to stand out stronger in your blend. Or if you know a specific flavor that ' a little goes a long way' then you use a smaller percentage. The best thing is just go by instinct. Don't blend something you wouldn't drink yourself. Hope that helps1

Gooner...

I just bought a bunch of samples from Adagio and played around with flavors. It usually takes me 2 or 3 tries to tweak the proportions. And even then, what tastes good to me may not appeal to someone else. All I can do is hope for the best! Good luck with your blends... I really enjoy that aspect of Adagio so much, and in fact it's what brought me here in the first place. I hope you have fun with it.

When I start running low on some tea or other, I wind up blending just to use it.
