drank Bold Coast Breakfast by Cup of Sea
2689 tasting notes

This was a treat from Michelle, and a fun one at that! Breakfast tea with oarweed, which, not being a marine life expert, is a completely new revelation to me.

Didn’t read any reviews before steeping, so based on the description alone and the hefty chunks of seaweed, I expected something somewhat fishy and very salty. Not so much. There is a hint of salinity, but otherwise it’s a good, thickish English breakfast tea with a little bit of sweetness and cereal at the end of each “ship.”
(First, that was a typo. Then I decided to leave it in, matey.)

Hahaha just roll with (the waves)

Sometimes the universe speaks to us through appropriate typos. I find this funny because I used to drive big ships for a living, not sure I’ve mentioned that before on this site? In my first career I was a ship’s navigator and I have been all around the world on cargo ships. Now I teach the weather to those mariners who still go to sea :)

(This just makes me wish all the more I had my sister’s Ancestry.com info that linked us to a pirate!) Have you tried any of the other Cup of Sea varieties? Their little seal logo is pretty adorable.

Michelle: I haven’t noticed this (but I am much “younger” here), but it sounds very cool indeed!

Gmathis, I picked this up at a tiny grocery in small coastal Maine when I was visiting Acadia NP. I didn’t go back into that store again so I didn’t pick up their herbal tea. I was thinking that I need to search for some seaweed to add to my favorite Assam!

Its been 18 yrs since I’ve been on a ship going to sea, so maybe that’s why I don’t bring it up. Everyone has a bit of backstory that we don’t always include here. I also didn’t drink tea in those days, for shame!

Nattie

That’s so cool Michelle !

I don’t think you have mentioned this, Michelle! It’s a little like “Oh and years ago, I was an astronaut, I don’t think I mentioned it”. (To me it is, anyway!)

Michelle

Hahaha! tea-sipper you crack me up! I mean I never said I was ‘normal’ I do drink an awful lot of tea :)
