Tea Mixology

Tea has always been a part of my life. I grew up drinking milky sweet cups of black tea and thought red rosewith the cute little figurines was the only tea imaginable!

Imagine my surprise as an adult when I discovered the beauty and varieties of loose leaf teas. There was now so much to discover on my tea journey.

Tea blending doesn’t need to be complicated. You may discover a blend you can’t live without or a fail and you try again, sip by sip! Remember this- there is no right or wrong way to do tea. What matters most is you enjoy the way your tea tastes and the memories you make along the way, one cup or pot at a time! Indulge Your Senses with TEA… Lovely Teas are fresh, premium loose leaf teas hand–blended with the finest 100% natural ingredients, organic where available, and handcrafted in small batches. No artificial flavours, no added sweeteners, fake colourings or additives you don’t want!

Let's Get Blending!

The idea behind our BLOSSOM & BLENDS
Mixology program is to not only create tea but to make memories by experience!

Ensure you have your recipe card, a pen or pencil and your senses ready to blend…

Step By Step Tea Blending

Let’s begin your Mixology personal blend session and experience tea as you like it!

You’ll need a few tools to make your cup of tea and tea blend:

– Table spoon or tea scoop
– Infuser or reusable or disposable tea bag
– Small mixing bowl
– Teacup or teapot
– Kettle

Before you start blending, are you doing it for health reasons or simply flavour? When blending for flavour, consider the tastes and aromas you’d like to achieve.

Fruity, spicy, floral… once you have an idea, start blending in a small batch as this is an experimental experience and all part of the fun!

There are 3 main tea blending techniques:

Blending herbs, inclusions and scenting.
