Let’s be honest, if a mermaid had a choice, she’d drink tea…but not just any tea—she’d have her own custom blend. And right now, merfriend, you can too!
Creating a custom tea blend is as easy as clicking a mouse and waiting for it to arrive. You can either use an online provider like www.blendbee.com or find a local shop that creates loose leaf tea blends.
When you first jump into sites like Blend Bee, you’re going to be hit with an overwhelming amount of choices. If you understand tea flavors, you probably have a pretty good idea of where to start, but if you don’t, our tea savants have pulled together a great starting place for you!
We’ve created a blend called Mermaid Lagoon. Start off with raspberry leaf and hibiscus flower. Add in some rose hips and lemongrass. Accent it with ginger while blending in blue cornflowers for a touch of ocean blue. Top it off with mango and passionfruit for the perfect mermaid-inspired blend. Mmmm, can you taste it already?

The best part is, that if the tea creator reads your list and thinks a few extra ingredients might make your tea the pearl of the sea, they’ll reach out and chat with you until you’re thrilled with the tea they are creating for you! I’ve even had my tea creators reach out to add things specifically to make it more colorful and pretty. So, not only did it taste amazing, but it looked gorgeous too!
Many custom tea sites will work with you on creating custom labels as well, so if you’re planning on creating teas for your next mermaid pod meeting, this is a great way to add a custom feel to a very unique present for your friends.
Once your custom blend has arrived, the best way to enjoy your tea is with a fancy teacup (bonus points for mermaid-inspired) and creating a mermaid tray to set it on. We recommend using a wooden or marble/pearl tray with a few seashells. You can add gold accents with figurines of an octopus, starfish, seahorses, etc. You can also add adorable succulents that look like they could have emerged right from the ocean floor.
When you’re happy with your set up, steep your tea, pour yourself a cup, and carry your tray to your reading nook for a little mertime!
Want to get extra mertastic? Take your tray poolside, slip into your tail, and enjoy a stunning afternoon tea by the water. Bonus points for taking a few selfies and tagging us on Instagram so we can see how you take your mermaid tea!
Happy tea creating, merfriends.
