    Definitely work those out! Sooooo you can share the recipe. Bourbon and fig sounds good. I used to get a juice from a chef friend, cranberry and raspberry, but blood orange sounds like a good cranberry match too. And, I need a tea. Please :wub:

    I would try a bourbon tea with an orange twist. Blood orange is very good with cheesecake. I would think the cranberry orange would make a nice jasmine or honeysuckle mix, could be a good floral tea as well. Boston tea would be a a pretty easy recipe to work out.

    Sort of like a mildly spicy raisin to me?? ( I have FA. ) The spicy lessens with steeping. After a month, it seems to have settled out. It’s got nice depth, but could definitely overpower lighter flavors. I did a cucumber, fig, hibiscus ( cucumber top note) that I like. I want to do a tea with it. It seems to compliment an earthy flavor.

    Every time I see "Blood Orange" it reminds me that I have a new flavor I haven't even single flavor tested yet: INW Bloody Orange. I was thinking somebody should have told them it's blood orange, not bloody :lol:

    @NolaMel The floral mixes you shared with me turned out great after a 2 week plus steep. I have more floral flavors now to get creative with the florals. Guess I had beginners luck because my first floral, after yours, I really enjoyed and need to mix more. Thanks for helping me get started with florals!

    Sweet Nothings

    4% TFA Cherry Blossom
    1% CAP Cucumber
    4% TFA Honeysuckle
    2% FA Jasmine
    .3% RF (BL) Madagascar Vanilla Bean

    2 Week Steep

    Notes:
    This is my first floral recipe I've written. It surprised me as it's really quite inviting! The florals come together nicely, sweet and light atop a velvety smooth vanilla bean embrace.
