The Art of Blending

Art Of Tea | From Rain to Shine
Recently, I was invited to Art of Tea, an LA based tea company that creates and blends their own custom tea. Their products are organic, fair trade, and sourced directly from the growers. We got a tour of the facility + warehouse, did a tea tasting, and concluded with getting to blend our own teas. As an avid tea drinker myself, it was so interesting to learn all about this awesome company, and the many benefits that tea possesses.

My custom tea blend: earl grey, pacific mint, coconut nibs, cornflower. Looks like Seattle in a bowl!

At the end, we tasted our tea, named it, and bagged the left overs to take home. Because mine was blue + green, with a strong, fresh mint taste, I named my blend Seattle Rain.

Thanks again to Art of Tea for inviting me to participate in this awesome event. Their tea is top notch, unique and oh so flavorful. I’m definitely savoring my special Seattle Rain blend!
