If you’re planning a wedding then you may want to bookmark this recipe! It’s an easy favor that has an extra ounce of magic. I find that fragrant teas often trigger sensory memories. Recently I had a conversation with my friends about it, and most of them had a fragrance or flavor memory to share. For example, each time I drink a certain brand of green tea I’m transported back to my old downtown apartment building where artists lived and worked. I like to drink it and reminisce. By making your own tea blends, you can transport guests back to your special day long after you say ‘I do’.
It’s so easy to get started. First choose a base loose tea. I like black tea and green tea, but you could also use mint leaves or any other herbal tea-worthy plant as a base.
Next, choose secondary and add-in flavors! I love incorporating plants and blooms that are not only tasty, but also pretty. Think rosebuds, chamomile, lavender and hibiscus. I recommend using clear jars to show off your pretty tea blends.
Be sure to add some directions to your favors! You could also tie on a muslin tea bag or infuser if you wanted to make these a little fancier.
You can find all the of my flavor recommendations, along with a good starting blend ratio on The Etsy Blog!
Oh this is a wonderful idea! My fiance and I are having a having a quiet breakfast wedding next spring and this just fits the vibe perfectly. 🙂 Always an inspiration! Thank you!
