Tea brewed with herbs, spices, and essential oils are known as blends. They can be treated differently than straight tea, as the herbs will mask the off flavors from over-steeping. To get the full flavor of the herbs in most blends, steeping longer will yield a more flavorful cup of tea. The art of blending herbs, spices, essential oils, and tea is much like painting a portrait. For a recipe to be enjoyed, there must be balance and complexity, yet the tea should not be masked beyond recognition.
