As I wistfully wandered around teashops, sniffing samples of teas that I canít afford, it suddenly occurred to me that I could make my own blends! Buying the ingredients from supermarkets or picking them from the garden must work out cheaper, right?
Here are my ideas (untested so far):
Nasturtium leaves and flowers, with rosehips, strawberries, and lemon peel.
(Fair Trade) black tea with horopito and orange peel.
Manuka leaves with lemon balm and mint.
Kawakawa with lemongrass, ginger and calendula (ok, so this one isnít actually my idea at all).
Rooibus tea with ginger, lemon peel and aniseed.
Manuka, kawakawa and fennel.
Other suggestions appreciated :)
