Blended / Unblended ?

by bharatmalu » Sep 9th 14 5:24 am

With more and more new trends coming up in Tea, do you guys like it blended with fruits/flower/herbs/spices by the brands/companies or you like to do it yourself at home?

I personally like to create my own blends at home.

I generally dislike most blends... save a few which are really nice. I think I'd prefer to blend in my own home, as I have a large variety of spices and the lot. I do this from time to time, but it really isn't very often since I don't drink herbal that often let alone a herbal blend and I rarely, RARELY drink a tea blend.

I mostly drink C. sinensis teas without any blending of herbs or spices. I occasionally buy some jasmine pearls because friends like it, but otherwise, straight tea.

When I want other flavors, I make my own herbal tisanes from my own collection of herbs and spices.

+1
When I want other flavors, I drink some dancong :wink:

Though I am considering experimenting with gently roasting/drying some cheap black tea with some spices... has anybody tried?

What bout Fruits and Flowers ? I feel some brands do put in 100% Natural Dried Fruits. The ones without artificial flavourings taste really amazing.

I would also like to make custom blends online and order the tea for me.

Fruits are definitely on the outside for me... I can't say I ever care for fruity teas, aside from coconut black and Earl Grey. I do like various flower teas though, like jasmine green, jasmine oolong, chrysanthemum pu-erh can be okay. Typically though, I'll just drink most flowers by themselves.

Is maybe the OP doing market research for this business idea? http://www.teachat.com/viewtopic.php?f=35&t=20049
Or is this just a coincidence?
