Tea Spells

Blend the teas for a recipe in a plastic baggy or a glass jar, then measure out one tablespoon per cup of tea.

A small two cup teapot will take two tablespoons of tea.

If you are like me, however, two cups of tea equates to three because I prefer my tea with lots of milk, because the tea base is black tea leaves, the addition of milk and a sweetener makes for a very flavorful beverage.

Unless you are making tea for a crowd, you really do need more than one or two tablespoons of tea at any one time.

Store in a closed jar in a cabinet away from light.
