This is the tea that got me through undergrad. I worked a full time job while taking five classes, so I would spend all my “free” time holed up in the university library until they forced me out at the 11pm closing, desperately trying to do all my readings and assignments and research. I always had my trusty thermos at my side and a cache of Library blend tea bags (the horror!)

Now that I’m not constantly on the go, I’ve switched to the less-portable but ever so much nicer loose leaf version. This is just a great staple tea, and exactly what I think a breakfast tea should taste like. It’s a little smokey from the black tea, and a little vegetal from the green, but it all rounds out nicely for something that you can drink without being distracted.

I have been drinking tea for almost as long as I could hold a cup with a handle. I blame this on my British expat parents, who also gave me an entire catalogue of culturally irrelevant reference points in which to confuse the world at large.

I drink almost strictly loose leaf, but the odd tea bag will cross my path due to well-intentioned in-laws and the like. I admit to a sad penchant for flavoured blacks, while aspiring to like more traditional unflavoured te …. oooh, vanilla.
