I’m almost out of this tea, which is a bit of a shame. I’ve really enjoyed it.
It’s turned, almost exclusively, into my Sunday morning tea. Sunday is the one day that I get to sleep in a bit, and don’t have immediate things I need to be doing, so this funny combination of black tea and chamomile ease me gently into wakefulness.
It’s a mild, pleasantly fresh tea, which I’ve been liking all summer, and it’s possible I will get more of it in future.
So I wrote a long note on Monday about a cool event I went to over the weekend where I got this and a couple other teas, but Steepster ate it. Boo. I’ll re-write it, but not today.
Today I am exsausted. It’s been over 100 degrees for the last few days, and my air conditioner is phoning it in. It never got below 80 degrees in my house last night, and hasn’t for the last couple of nights.
I’m knackered. I am dragging my sorry carcass all around making mewling noises, drinking my own weight in ice water, and considering sticking my head in the freezer.
So I wont write a more intense note today than to say this is a mild black tea, with delicate lemon and vanilla, and it’s very nice today.
I am, apparently, not a very subtle person. I like my flavors to be there, more often than not. So, while I find the flavors of this tea to be pleasant, I wish they were stronger! I wish I had a juicier apricot and a kickier ginger here. I especially like ginger to bite back.
Still, I think this will be enjoyable in the hot months.
This is a pleasant black tea, very appropriate for breakfast as the name suggests. The vanilla is subtle (which I prefer) and the lavender flowers are more present, though without being too overbearing. The lavender also seems to make this tea slightly peppery, which is unique enough to keep me thinking about it throughout the morning. The black tea itself is just fine – nothing remarkable, though I would not consider that to be a drawback at all.
Fragrantly-vanilla and lightly coconut-sweet, this unconventional take on the Indian chai recipe is peppery enough to perk your taste buds and accessible enough to be enjoyed without softening it with milk (though that would certainly be a fine way to drink it, too). For black tea, this is very smooth. All of the ingredients gently converge into a tasty harmony. If it were a color, I believe it would be periwinkle.
Invigorating blend, and pretty potent stuff to fight against a head cold. Peppermint and white sage make for a powerful combo that tickles the nose and restores the body. This is a perky tea rather than a soothing one. The white sage, in particular, might make this a little strong for daily sipping, but that’s not to say it isn’t delicious! Highly recommended for an herbal medicine collection, since it also has yarrow. I just ordered a one-pound bag :)
