State Fruit Series

by DeejayPancake » Dec 9th 08 6:44 am

I'm starting a series that revolves around the fruits declared to represent certain U.S states. I got the idea after making my "Good Ol' Georgia" blend, so I decided to follow-up with as many states as I possibly can.

So far I have:
Good Ol' Georgia
New York Nirvana
Sunny Side Florida
Texas Lone Star


I'll update. (:

EDIT: Added Louisiana Lovin' and Quiet Time Maine

Really cool idea. You have a long road ahead of you to get all 50 states.

I think it is a great idea what you want to do.
Are you trying these tea before you create them? Do you buy your State fruit blends to try them out, to improve them or if they are good enough to sell?

Best of luck

Cranberry would be good for WI, or (even though it isn't a fruit) maple). Grape for CA (because of all the vineyards. Granny smith apple for WA. And you DEFINITELY MUST do prickly pear cactus for AZ and pineapple for HI.

Name the state fruit in the tea title

by johnoed » Jan 30th 09 10:23 am

I think this is a great idea. However, I think it could benefit from putting the state fruit name into the name of the blend. I had no idea that apples were the state fruit of New York and it would have been helpful if the name of the tea represented the state fruit. It's still a great idea though. I'm partial to New York since it's where I spent the most time growing up, that and Florida, so I'd most likely buy that one. I'm a bit concerned though that the blend of fruit for the New York mix is a bit sweet for my taste. We'll see.
