As you are probably well aware by now, we held a Kickstarter campaign to get everything we needed to take over this company. One of the incentives for our start-up Kickstarter campaign was to create a VIT blend. I was so thrilled with a few of my customers from my LiberTEAS days pledged their support for this 52Teas venture of ours. And one of my previous customers wanted to create a VIT blend – but here’s the cool part: She wanted me to recreate one of my blends that I created in my LiberTEAS days!
I was so excited and proud! (Thank you!)
So here is that tea! I call it Breakfast in Bed because it tastes like the kind of tea that I’d want to sip if I were so fortunate to enjoy a breakfast in bed sometime. It’s the kind of tea that makes you feel pampered and indulgent. It’s the kind of tea that you want to sip slowly and linger over because you never want the cup to end!
I blend two different teas for the base: A Chinese Rose Congou and a Vietnamese black tea. Then I flavor this tea with vanilla and real vanilla bean and I add a generous sprinkling of cinnamon. Because I only use cinnamon pieces in this and not cinnamon flavoring, the cinnamon doesn’t take center stage. It offers a warm yet delicate cinnamon note that doesn’t interfere with the other flavors of the cup. It’s sweet, it’s creamy, it’s pleasantly floral. It’s luxurious and indulgent.
I love it!

I just loved the idea of this one… though I didn’t drink this with breakfast in bed. More like helping my dad with speech (he has been improving after last year’s stroke.. he keeps working at it which is great. Somehow he mostly misses the what or the noun/ subject when he is saying a sentence, if anyone has any tips for that) and then another mug while reading outside. The blend features black tea (of course, it’s for breakfast) with two forms of roses and a Rose Congou base, cinnamon and vanilla. The rose is definitely wafting around in the mug, though not too strongly. I’m also tasting occasional hints of cinnamon. I feel any 52Teas blend that mentions vanilla never has enough vanilla. The black tea is a bit light. But there is a satisfying quality to the first mug that somehow does say it’s an indulgent breakfast treat. I’m wondering why 52Teas never has yerba mate bases though… or oolong?

52teas ordered today and this was the first one I tore into. It is one of the teas that I was most excited about. The combination is so unique that I just had to try this. Rose, cinnamon, and vanilla. I mean, how amazing and fancy does that sound? So…… I enjoyed this but it was little thinner mouth feel than I was expecting. The flavor was good. I mostly got vanilla and cinnamon. I am taking this one to work to see how it holds up there……
