244/365

- Assam/Ceylon blend; pretty straightforward!
- Malty, sweet, bold
- Not too tannic
- Would be excellent actually with breakfast – I find some teas too strong for early morning drinking, but this one strikes a nice balance.
- I feel like I’ve heard of this one before, and maybe seen it in some stores, but I’ve never paid much attention to it. I would now, if I were looking for a solid EB, particularly if there’s a loose leaf version.

It rained all night; I’m wondering if I need to start gathering animals two by two. Got the cats already, except they’re both male…

Anyway, it’s a wet, sullen, chilly morning and a stout wake-up was needed. Pure Leaf is filling that bill pretty decently. Has enough bite to it (and usually I need morning tea with fangs) that I prefer it with milk. Nice to find a good morning loose leaf on the shelves at Walmart. Hope it stays there.

About a year ago, we discovered in our Publix store the best bottled tea I’ve ever had. Most bottled teas taste artificial or watered down to me. The bottles of Pure Leaf tea set a new standard. They tasted great, natural, and freshly brewed. So, when I discovered a loose leaf Pure Leaf product in Publix last night, I immediately tossed it into the cart.

My hopes were high for this tea. It was packaged in a simple and contemporary plastic jar. Inside the lid, just a simple paper seal protected the contents from the world we live in. The short dark brown leaves had a nice rich earthy aroma.

As always, I followed the manufacturer’s instructions and steeped the leaves at 212 degrees for three minutes. The brewed liquor was a dark honey color. The smell was like Assam with a tad of sweetener.

The flavor of this tea was smooth, robust, and full-bodied. I could taste both the Ceylon and Assam, which seemed to be blended in perfect harmony. There was just an itsy bitsy twang of astringency, but this seemed to disappear after the first couple of sips. The aftertaste was strong but amiable.

As I said earlier, I had high hopes for this tea, and it didn’t disappoint me. It had all of the characteristics that I look for in a black tea. It was bold, defined, and flavorful. I will overlook the twinkle of astringency since it went away quickly.

If your grocery store has this tea, I would recommend you give it a try. You can’t go wrong at under $7 for 4.7 ounces!

NOTE: 1/3/2018 – Just a quick alert for anyone interested in this tea. Publix had it on sale last night for $6.99 and buy one/get one. At $3.50 for 4.7 ounces, it’s a great bargain!

ANOTHER NOTE: 3/4/2018 – Just left the Publix store. This tea is again on sale for $6.99 and buy one/get one. I picked up two more!
