Organic Breakfast Tea

description

A harmonious blend, this is the kind of tea you turn to when you need a hearty cup before the start of a day.
Beaming with smooth, sweet flavors of dates and honey, and refreshing bite of coriander, every sip satiates you a little more than the next. It has just the right amount of astringency to toggle the smoothness of the tea without distorting the balance, rendering, thus, a gratifying experience.

Good morning!

Best Served : Morning.

Considering my general dislike for black tea, I was at first a bit taken aback to find it in my first ever tea box.. however I gave it a chance and I'm glad I did. It's surprisingly good. I like the slight fruity hints and the complex body. I tried it with honey and added after a couple sips some milk to see how it tastes and I like both variations. Give it a chance even if you're not a fan of black tea!

This tea has bold flavors but with the addition of honey is my favorite way to make it because it brings out the slight fruitful flavors.

Complex Flavors

I have been drinking breakfast teas for a while now and usually find myself reaching for the milk and/or honey to add some complexity to the flavor profile. With my first cup of this tea I decided to skip the milk and honey to try it straight and I'm glad I did. The complexity of flavor is there without any additives. I will certainly give it a try with a dash of milk and/or honey or sugar but it is rare that I like a tea this much plain and I certainly like this one,

For a breakfast black tea I think it has a great flavor, even though I'm not a huge fan of black tea in general. I added some honey to it and it reminds me of coffee, so that's a big positive. Great for mornings.

A Great Breakfast Tea for Goldilocks

Likes : Freshness, Smooth Body.

A lovely black blend. It has a tinge of bitterness and sweetness that allows it to stand on its own without added condiments. However, that same tinge of bitterness lends it well to being paired with a little cream (and sugar if desired). Quite nice.

breakfast tea for the darjeeling drinker

Likes : Freshness, Unique Flavor Profile.

Best Served : Morning.

This blend has a distinctive character, very grassy and fresh- like a strong darjeeling tea. Probably not one for the malty seeking Assam drinker, but certainly unlike the other breakfast teas if you are looking for something a bit different.

If you are looking for a nice blended breakfast tea, this is it! Obviously, this can be enjoyed any time, but I use it as a great pick-me-up in the mornings at work. Velvety, great flavor, wonderful blend.
