Reinventing Tea

The other day, a friend offered to serve me tea from her impressive collection. She had the Mighty Leaf chocolate tea sampler, which included such delicious-sounding concoctions as Chocolate Chai, Mayan Chocolate, and Chocolate Mint Truffle. Chocolate tea. How perfect. I couldn't decide between the Rooibos Vanilla or the Mighty Leaf Chocolate Mint Truffle. So I chose both. Add a little bit of milk, and it was sublime: robust, voluptuous, and hearty--if ever a tea can be.

The next day I decided to order the Mighty Leaf Chocolate Tea sampler. The photos on the Mighty Leaf Web site looked enticing. The prices, however, were a different story. "Hey, I can make these teas," I thought, "and more."

Tomorrow, I head to the bulk section of my local co-op with my list in hand. I'm going to buy some of the raw ingredients found in these teas in bulk, and whip up my own versions.

Stay tuned for pictures, recipes, and reactions.

What were some of your own concoctions? I'd love to learn.

  1. This looks like it will be a fun blog to follow. I don't have anything to add yet, but I'll keep tea in mind.

    I am looking forward to seeing a mug shot! :)
