Seems like every time I try a tea I feel like I need to try it again. The rest of you can do great notes the first time. I will learn. Anywho, I will be trying this one again soon, but so far it is fabulous. I wanted a good black breakfast tea and I got it. This was a sample I got along with the basic black chai sample, and I think I actually like this more!

I cream and sugar my breakfast teas, so I like them bold. This is a deep rich flavor, just the right maltiness and power but without being a caffeine blast to the gut, and smooth enough to go with breakfast instead of overpowering it. Of course I sort of forgot about breakfast today and sat sipping instead.

I have had this song stuck in my head all day now. It wouldn’t be so bad if I could remember more of it, but the words always get muddled in the middle bits.

Sorry, just saw your reply. I knew the name of the song, Finnegan’s Wake is a great old Irish song. Every real version is worth hearing. I once spent all night listening to every version i could find (that didn’t involve someone sitting in their dormroom with an acoustic and a webcam) on youtube. Trouble is that I had the Dropkick Murphy’s version stuck in my head, and well.. they drink quite a bit, and are punk, and I remember the pint-slapping parts and the general shape of the syllables way better than the actual words.

Bio

Hello, as you may have guessed, I am not really Londo Mollari. Apologies for the deception. I am Melissa.

In addition to my teas, I am a bit of a foodie, have an undying love for red wine and am lucky enough to have all the restaurants of DC and several VA wineries within a lazy reach of home. I have an ever-expanding orchid obsession and I have been known to talk to them. It helps.

To be honest, Tea went from being an interest to a bit of an obsession fairly recently for me – since I quit smoking. Tasting things is amazing, who knew?! Though a nice cuppa now replaces a much worse addiction, I spend FAR more money on this than I ever did on cigarettes.

I have loved tea ever since I was small, probably too small, visiting on the farm in Nebraska and drinking all my grandmother’s sun tea. I still prefer now what I liked then, watching tea slowly stain eddies of water, tasting nature.
