Tea mixology

As of tomorrow, March 27, I will have completed my 25th lap around the sun. My time has been remarkably consistent each time. How boring and predictable.

To make up for this ho hum regularity, I'll be sharing with you five of the best five minute tea mixes I have yet to find on my quest towards tea alchemy greatness.

1. Can't wait for summer? Try mixing equal parts of midsummer nights dream and mango madness. The perfect balance of tart, sweet, minty, and awesome. It'll have you thinking warm, carefree thoughts in no time. Hakuna mata.

2. Like maple bacon? Try mixing 3 parts oh Canada to one part Lapsang Souchong Star. The little piglets will thank you.

3.You'll want to sit down for this one. Mix equal parts Forever nuts and buttercream. Hopefully it's a big comfy chair so you can melt into it in a state of pure bliss. Add some agave and see what happens.

4. Love roasting marshmallows on the open fire, but don't have marshmallows or a fire? Have no fear, lapsang souchong star and vanilla oolong are here! Go for thrice as much oolong as lapsang. Now all you need is an acoustic guitar and some friends to sing with. Good times.

5. Candy cane enthusiasts take heed. Mix 2 parts vanilla oolong to one part peppermint amour. All that without the cavities and empty calories. Sounds like a win-win to me.

Feel free to post your own mixes in the comment section! Enjoy the tasty recipes above.

Adios amigos.
