As some of you may have realized, I just revisited a few teas (Russian Caravan, and Lapsang Souchong). Something that hit me this morning was that the flaws in each one might be compensated by way of a blending. This is particularly amusing because I always happen to naturally incline to a combination of supposedly opposing things, so the idea is far overdue. :)
So, I put one tsp of each in my pot this morning. Result: good. Not better than I expected, but better than I had originally thought. Further blending, including of other combinations, will now commence. I think I'll have more to say about it with time...
All the best,
