Taster’s Review:

When it comes to breakfast blends, I want the tea to be strong – something that will help me shake off that “still sleepy” feeling that I have in the morning.  This tea does that, but still offers an agreeable sweet taste that brings a smile to my face.

It is a pleasantly robust, bright-tasting blend of black teas.  I find it very well-rounded:  smooth, but not too silky; vigorous, but not too strong; sweet, but not sickeningly so.  Just a very flavorful black tea.  It’s a little milder than some breakfast teas – it doesn’t reach out and slap you in the face to wake you up.  Instead, it gives you a sweet, gentle nudge to get you going.

The tea finishes with a dry note to the palate, much like drinking a fine dry wine, but without the bitterness I’d associate with that wine.  I like this tea very much, and I like it even better knowing it is a blend of organic, fair trade teas.

This is one that you can feel good about waking up to in the morning!
