Creative Flavor Profiles:

Edible flowers
Adding a flowers of Honeysuckle will add a silky and unique taste to the tea and will strike out opposing flavors. Experiment with any edible flowers to explore your favorite flavor profiles.

Almond or coconut milk

Almond and coconut milk will add the creamy, velvety texture to your tea while being lighter and healthier than heavy cream

Sorbet or ice cream
Spring is finally here, so consider turning your hot beverage to a cold, refreshing one. A light amount of citrus sorbets, frozen yogurts or cream-based ice creams are a great way to add a sweet flavor while adding texture to your drink.
