From Joffrey's Coffee &Tea Company

Fresh and invigorating, our signature breakfast blend is a wonderfully vibrant black tea with notes of sweet caramel and malty oats. Excellent as a stand alone or with milk and sugar. The perfect way to start every day. – See more at: http://www.joffreys.com/tea/english-breakfast-(2)#sthash.JrhyiLn5.dpuf

I was so sure I had reviewed this before…

I am a little afraid of breakfast blends. I don’t add milk or sugar to my tea, so I find builders’ teas to be somewhat brutal. Breakfast blends are often heavy on Assam or hearty Kenyan tea that has an edge and a good bit of astringency, and my wimpy tummy can’t take it. I am sure I would enjoy it with additions but I try to avoid them.

So this one was approached with caution. I steeped for only three minutes. I am pleasantly surprised. This is a very good accompaniment to my sweet and tart cranberry and white chocolate scone that youngest made (with fresh whipped cream – mm). This is most definitely a breakfast blend but it doesn’t bite. The packaging and website don’t tell you what is in this, and looking at the dry leaf it is quite dark, small leaves with a few larger flat tan leaves mixed in. Definitely mostly Assam and those may be a few golden tips or some not-so-green Darjeeling.

GMathis says this is “juicy” rather than drying and I agree. It is a nice, non-frightening breakfast blend for those who are a little apprehensive of that term.

I’m a sloppy timer, but I’m sure I let my cuppa go 4-5 minutes, and it was still very pleasant.

The downside for those of us who love heavy builders’ teas in the morning is that sometimes your mouth feels like it’s lined with Kleenex after you drink them. First thing I said to myself upon sampling this one was, “Hey, this makes me not thirsty!” The juiciness makes me wonder if there’s a good bit of Darjeeling in the mix. Tea description on the Joffrey’s website doesn’t give much away.

Flavor-wise, it’s smooth, sweet and toasty and yeah, I’m getting the “hints of caramel” mentioned in the product info as well. Nice.

sounds like a good morning cup!

“…lined with Kleenex” is a FABULOUS analogy for the effect of builers’ tea. Sometimes that fuzziness lasts a good half a day or so, I find.

That is the correct info! My daughter picked up a number of Joffrey teas
when she was in Florida. This is a breakfast blend that my wimpy self can handle. Most builders’ teas make me cower. Glad you liked it!

Oh, and the pouch it came in doesn’t enlighten me, either.

They’re the tea and coffee providers for Disney! I love their chai more than anything. They have a store in Disney Springs and kiosks in the Disney parks. Here’s where my favorite Disney blog went and reviewed their store: http://www.disneyfoodblog.com/2015/07/06/news-and-review-joffreys-tea-traders-cafe-at-disney-springs/
