drank Soho Breakfast by Sanctuary T
902 tasting notes

I got the Plum District deal for Sanctuary T, and used it to get a lot of teasers! This is one that I’ve been interested in for a bit…I’m currently having a mild obsession with different breakfast blends. English, Irish, Scottish, French, New England…I’ve been browsing all kinds of them at various online shops (it’s a miracle I haven’t ordered them all). So, when I was perusing the Sanctuary T site plotting what to get, and saw Soho Breakfast, I couldn’t pass it up.

It’s a good, solid, robust blend. It’s got a creamy, hearty mouthfeel, and I can taste notes of bakiness (is that a real word?), and something almost like vanilla, but kind of citrusy as well. It’s definitely a good first cup o’ the morning. I think that next time, though, I’ll brew at 5 minutes to see what happens. I have a feeling that this would be even better if it were stronger.

I know what you mean about breakfast blends. What is it about them that inspire such completionistism and collector feelings?

It’s like I have to know what makes each of them different. Someday, when I’ve got a solid collection of breakfast blends (I’ve only got, oh, about 6 right now), I plan on doing a side by side, cup by cup comparison so I am able to definitively know the nuances between the blends. I’m afraid the obsession is spilling over to chais now, too…

Bio

My love of tea started in 2001, whilst in an internship in London, England. I shared an office with a lovely man who would make me a cup of tea every morning without asking me if I even wanted it. I drink my tea neat now, because I’ve yet to find the sugar/milk combination that lives up to Pablo’s.

I drink any and all kinds of tea, and love trying new brands/varieties/flavors.
