Sencha Citrus Punch Iced Tea

Winter is finally over and Spring is popping up with color all over the place. We've had some serious wildflower blooms here in the desert along with our first 80° day, and the forecast is suggesting we might be hitting 90° next week. All this means its now iced tea weather. Since I also just… Continue reading Sencha Citrus Punch Iced Tea

Gyokuro Moonlight Sour Series

Guokuro Moonlight Sour has turned out to be one of my best blends for iced tea. I'm going to stock up ASAP on both Nio Tea's Gyokuro Cha Mesume and Yunnan Sourcing Wild Tree Purple Moonlight (Scott said 2019 would be available sometime in the next 30 days). Here's where my art went with this blend.… Continue reading Gyokuro Moonlight Sour Series

Gyokuro Moonlight Sour Iced Tea

Staying on budget is always a challenge. On my last two tea orders, I've had to settle for some smaller samples and delay my restock. As a result, I've been doing a lot of gong-fu size sessions and saving the leaves. In addition to blending my own teas, I also like to save spent leaves… Continue reading Gyokuro Moonlight Sour Iced Tea

Black Cran-Orange Cinnalicious Series

The big day is almost here and baking has begun around my house. The smells of spices, roasting nuts and lots of hot tea have been heaven. I've really enjoyed producing these Holiday Blend series and a little sad to say this will be the last one for the year. I began editing one of… Continue reading Black Cran-Orange Cinnalicious Series

Black Cran-Orange Cinnalicious Tea Blend Recipe

Well, this is it for this Holiday Season's Tea Blend. Going forward I'll do them periodically for the season or holidays but have no specific schedule planned. Now that Tea Gong-Go is up and running I need to get back to editing a finished manuscript and the completion of one I started right before this… Continue reading Black Cran-Orange Cinnalicious Tea Blend Recipe

Golden Moon Tea Tie Guan Yin Series

Wow, the holidays are taking me for a beating. We're celebrating at my house this year and today was all about an appetizer and the soup course. The soup was a hit and on the menu. The appetizer - not so much. I'll have to go back to the drawing board on that one. I… Continue reading Golden Moon Tea Tie Guan Yin Series

You can get the recipe here. Instead of using one image for this series I've used three. Along with the… Continue reading Goji Berry Lime Punch Series

Goji Berry Lime Punch

Wow - what a weekend. Managed to finish the Christmas shopping then got sucked into the abyss that is Instagram Stories. It took me a good chunk of the weekend, but I finally think I've got it down and a process in place for this social network. It's time to relax and I'm going to… Continue reading Goji Berry Lime Punch

Spiced Apple Keemun Steamer Series

This series was even more fun to produce than the tea blend behind it. Once I got started I didn't want to stop but it was getting late and I hadn't even touched my latest manuscript today so I finally had to call it quits. I'm up in the air though about how to post… Continue reading Spiced Apple Keemun Steamer Series

Apple Spiced Keemun Steamer Tea Blend

One of my favorite part of the holidays is blending up new teas. I always have bits of this and that from all the teas I buy left over at the end of the year and a budget that usually does not include purchasing new ones. I do however have lots of dried fruit and… Continue reading Apple Spiced Keemun Steamer Tea Blend
