From Tea Revv

A delicious black tea with a sweet creamy taste. A perfect start to the day, whatever time that may be. Try as a lattea with hot frothed milk.

Best Brewed: Hot / Lattea
1-2 teaspoons, near boiling water, infuse for 3-4 minutes. Perfect with milk and sweetened to taste. Brewing is part of the fun, experiment to find what you like the best.

Tea Revv Advent Calendar – Day 12

(originally written November 12th)

Ugh… For some reason, last night I got terrible heartburn, so I ended up staying awake until around 2, then drifitng in and out of restless sleep on the couch until 4, before finally being able to fall sound asleep in my bed. I’m not sure if it was because I didn’t eat much yesterday, but drank a lot of tea? I don’t generally have stomach issues with tea though. Anyway, I’m feeling exhausted because of that and, of course, it’s a crappy dark and cold, rainy day today.

So I really just want to go home and take a nap…

I was somewhat happy to see a breakfast tea in my advent selections today, and hopefully it will perk me up a bit. This is not quite as strong as I would like, especially since it’s a bit astringent. I feel like if a tea is going to be inherently brisk and/or astringent (like Assam) it should be big on the flavor as well. The base tea does have some maltiness, but otherwise is quite plain. I can taste the creamy vanilla flavor, and it’s in good balance with the tea, not overpowering it too much.

This is a pretty good one. I would like a more flavorful base tea, but it gets the job done.

That sounds miserable! The heartburn, not the tea. What works for me is cutting up some ginger root into thin slices (or shredding) and steeping to make a tea with a bit of honey. It sort of seems counterintuitive since ginger is “spicy,” but it’s a good anti-inflammatory for the stomach / esophagus, and works quite quickly for me. Usually by the time I’ve sipped my way to the bottom of the cup, I feel okay and can go back to sleep. I’m not much of a home remedy person, but Ginger. Yeah. Maybe worth a try. (You can even use just spice shelf ground ginger, apparently, but I haven’t tried this yet.)

This was nice enough. The flavor was rather like a presweetened, pre-milked black tea, so while it was nothing remarkable, it was nice and cozy. Not a tea to drink if you don’t like sweet.

Sipdown (285)

Creamy but with a metallic astringency at the end of the sip. I think Irish Cream describes this better than Ice Cream. Regardless of what you call it though, breakfast teas just aren’t for me and this is no exception.

Arby

Darn, I was hoping this would be good. I’m glad I didn’t splurge for the shipping on an order now.

I really don’t like any breakfast teas. I find them super brisk so I am probably not the best person to be giving an opinion about this tea.
