Adding our Bouvier Kelly twist to the tradition of Afternoon Tea, we decided to try our hand at creating our own tea blends. Using a variety of the ingredients that you will typically see, we each made the blend that suited us best. We can report that green and black tea were equally popular bases, peppermint was the favorite herbal ingredient, and cocoa nibs seem to have been the most intriguing. Flower ingredients such as chamomile and chrysanthemums were prettiest to look at before brewing, but hibiscus showed nicest after (pink beverages being more visually appealing than yellow in general).
Overall, it must be said that the best flavor is in the palette of the drinker, but in the end we all agreed that putting every ingredient in one bag is inadvisable.
