I love strawberry Yerba Mate tea but can't seem to get it anywhere.

I also love normal Tetley tea with spearmint tea added and a tea spoonful of honey or Mocavado sugar.

I also like Redbush tea with normal tea. And Sleepytime Tea with normal tea.

People think I'm mad. But I love combining teas. My favourite would have to be rosehip and normal tea.

I like Green Teas as well.

What's yours?

If you don't mind waiting, you can order some strawberry yerba mate tea from the USA

Here's one supplier, for instance

I've never combined teas, but I do occasionally chuck a teaspoon of instant coffee in there, for added caffeine.

5 Cardamom pods + 5 segments of Star Anise + Slice of ginger + 5 Cloves + 5 Peppercorns + Stick of Cinnamon + 1 Tea bag

And a little honey and milk to taste

That is my personal chai mix, if you steep it for an hour+ without the tea bag it has quite a good kick, though the tea bag must be added last and then left for another couple of minutes.

That sounds warm and cosy. I believe you can buy Chai Spice Tea. Just haven't seen it around since last year.

I used to get this (the brand La Merced) from my local healthstore. Now they can't get it.

Aww, I thought this thread was going to be about cooking with tea. :sad: I know a great recipe for a cake where you soak dried fruit in earl grey overnight.

Coftea! Does that not taste... just wrong?

To put it bluntly, yes. But in the hour of need, it helps.

Try online

UruShop sells three La Merced blends

Like this one, for instance

eBay might be another option
