Sometimes you need more than just energy or great taste. Sometimes, you need a tea that has it all. Like this incredibly rich and satisfying java-spiked blend. With black tea, roasted chicory, cinnamon and coffee beans, it’s sweet and complex blend that even coffee lovers go crazy for. So next time you need a sweet treat and a pick-me-up all rolled into one, you know what to reach for.

This tea smells faintly of coffee and cinnamon. It brewed to a satisfying dark red brown colour When I drank it Espresso Yourself started off slightly bitter on my tongue with a faint taste of coffee. After swallowing the tea I was left with a strangely sweet and creamy after taste. I can’t say the taste was very pleasant but it wasn’t horrible either. I’ll probably finish off my 50g of it sparingly as a pick me up at work, because the espresso bean, tea combination did perk me up quite a bit.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Coffee, Creamy, Earth
This is a nice tea in my opinion. However it is slightly bitter from the coffee beans. I also get a note that I would describe as roasted hazelnuts. It is overall pretty good if you can get past the bitterness from the coffee beans.
I brewed this one time in a 16oz Teavana Glass Perfect Tea Maker/Gravity Steeper with 3 tsp leaf and 200 degree water for four minutes.
Flavors: Hazelnut, Roasted

POOP ON MY ROOF:
I have (bagged) dog poop on my roof.
Let me explain.
After my dog did his morning business, I bagged it and tried to throw it toward the corner of the house where the trash can is. Except I don’t understand angles, and I underhanded the throw, and thud. A baggie of dog poop on my roof.
I texted this fact to my husband and he simply replied, “this is my life.”
People are SLAMMING this tea on here, but I like it. It’s basically black tea with coffee and cinnamon in it. I guess there’s an edge of sweet artificiality in the “cream flavoring.” I don’t mind that. However, as I always say, I AM A DIET COKE FIEND. (Which is different from a “coke fiend” or even a “Coke fiend.”) Bring in stuff derived from tar. I will put it in my face.
I found this tea a lovely way to celebrate National Coffee Day. Thanks to officemate K for the sample! (She’s probably not reading this. But if you are, K, I appreciate all that you do, and your cat is cute.)
Espresso yourself. Love the name. Love the fact that it’s organic, and with simple ingredients. The coffee beans are a nice touch. It brews up dark and dense, and not as overpowering as Coffee Pu’erh. I drink it mostly as a latte.
Flavors: Coffee, Tea, Vanilla
Thanks again, Julie Jones! I thought I’d like this one… it seemed like it would be a stand-in for coffee that I don’t really like. With two teaspoons, the flavor was WAY too much chicory. It resulted in a mostly bitter cup. Trying it again with one teaspoon, the chicory is still at the forefront which is a shame. It’s just not sharing the cup with the other ingredients like the cinnamon and coffee beans. Too much chicory to me tastes like splenda and I don’t love that at all. This isn’t the worst tea I’ve tried, but I don’t feel like I’m going to want to steep it often.

I was suprised at how much I liked this tea, considering I am still not a huge coffee person (there’s only a couple of ways I can drink it, both involve lots of milk, LOL). I liked the taste better than the smell on this one, and I may actually purchase some so that I can drink it when I’m craving coffee but can’t actually get coffee.
This is as close to coffee as it gets, folks. I am not a coffee drinker so I was sceptical going into this, but the flavours work very successfully as a tea. A powerful coffee bean flavour dominates, helped along with more subtle notes of cinnamon. The flavour isn’t complex so much as bold. Quite delicious and rich, this would go well with many desserts.
