Rose Breakfast Blend
Makes about ½ cup

Breakfast blends are usually a mix of stronger and lighter teas in the ratio that gives a recognizable breakfast tea flavor. The most common teas in breakfast blends come from India and Sri Lanka, although teas from other countries are now used as well. For the traditional Breakfast Blend, use Darjeeling and Assam tea. This tea is perfect with milk. When brewing, use about 1 tsp. tea blend per cup of hot water.
Mix together well and put in small jar. Keeps for up to six months.
2 Tbsp. plus 2 tsp. Darjeeling tea
¼ cup Assam tea
4 tsp. dried rose buds or petals

1 Tbsp. plus 2 tsp. catnip
1 Tbsp. plus 2 tsp. fennel seed
