By now I really have run out of ways to put it. But I’ll try. Tea is life. Tea is bae (I love tea so much that I used the word bae, a word I loathe). Tea is happiness. Tea is refreshing, calming, a delicious pick me up, a good sutta-accompaniment. Basically, tea is more than just a beverage.
However, as much as I love tea, I hate that every time I feel like trying a different brew of tea and browse the mighty internet for a good blend, the price of it just goes “yeah right” as if my bank balance didn’t already do that. Yes, I’m all for a classic cup of tea, but being the somewhat normal human I am, I do desire to try new things. And being a tea lover, hell yes, I would like to try new tea blends.
This time though, as I was browsing the net, it’s as if the universe finally lent its ears to my tea desires, because I came across this concept that I knew I had to share with all you fellow tea lovers. It’s DIY tea blends. The best thing I browsed the entire day. Making your own tea blends with your choice herbs, flowers, and fruits?? Isn’t that just ‘tearrefic’?
So, save your coins, and try out these 5 DIY tea blends that are just tealicious!
