The best of both worlds: it’s not just a Miley Cyrus television show. It’s this tea. Chocolate + tea = I’m floating on a cloud of bliss.

Not your typical breakfast blend, which is entirely fitting for a tea that calls itself Pacific Coast Breakfast. Some brightness, some sweet earthiness and oh, just a hint of smoke. I absolutely loved it. I drank it black, unsweetened, watching hawks sketch beautiful spirals against the morning sky.

I got this as a gift. I love getting gifts and what could be sweeter than a gift of cinnamon tea in this lovely tin! My notes are thus: a very light bodied cup of tea, with definitely cinnamon flavors first and foremost. I’m pleased to say that the cinnamon flavor tastes like cinnamon stick, not fake cinnamon candy. I now feel as though I’ve written the word cinnamon more times than I ever have before. In conclusion cinnamon cinnamon, I would recommend this tea to cinnamon lovers who like a light cup of tea rather than a robust, well rounded cup of tea. I personally would have preferred a nice balance of blended teas and the cinnamon. The cinnamon End cinnamon.

drank Chamomile by Trader Joe's

So my bestie came over and after lunch I offered tea (of course). She must reduce caffeine so requested something herbal. I made this chamomile tea. I have been drinking a cup almost daily since I too have to keep caffeine to a fraking minimum. Which I’m handling with such grace as you can see. We sipped our tea dutifully and then left to go out. As we walked away, I said, “I hate chamomile tea so much.” Relief and solidarity in her eyes, my friend responded fervently, “I do too!” It was fun to hate it together.

Chamomile with ___ (fill in your favorite fruity herbal thing) is a significant improvement over chamomile straight up. I can’t find it locally at the moment, but Celestial Seasonings has a sweet apple chamomile that’s downright tasty.

Yes, gmathis: blends are the way to go with chamomile, for me. Please excuse my flip, irreverent, and self indulgent tea log posting, but I enjoyed writing it! : ) I wonder if some herbs such as chamomile are like cilantro. You know how some people hate cilantro and other people are like, MORE of that cilantro goodness? Chamomile on its own tastes rather metallic. Warm, metal flavored water…

drank Mistie's Blend by Carytown Teas

Just finished my sample, I hung onto it as long as possible, thank you Josie Jade! I feel as though Josie Jade has expanded my horizons into the world of tea with flavors and oh, what a delicious world it is! I used to be all like, “straight up, black tea!” And she’s all, “…with caramel? And vanilla?” And now I’m like, “yes, please!” Mistie’s Blend by Carytown Teas is a heavenly blend of all things sweet and scrumptious. I enjoyed it steeped with milk, no sugar or honey, and it had such a natural tasting, lingering sweetness. Sigh! : )

Haha! Glad you liked it! :)

I got this as an anniversary present! A propos, right? Oh my gosh, where to start: first of all, it is so good. Yum. Lots of flavors and nuances going on but all harmonizing gorgeously. You’ve got your sweet, malty, mouth-puckeringness and a little smoke and a little earthiness. Total tea party in one blend. Love!

Spencer

Sounds delicious. Is it heavy?

Serenity

In a good way!

Terri HarpLady

It does sound tasty!

Last cup made, tin is empty. So very…very empty. This tea turned out to be a favorite, I started drinking it each morning. Sometimes at night I’d go to sleep all smiley thinking, “ah tomorrow morning, can’t wait for that tea!”

Bio

Although I can be heard to mutter “Dust! Fannings and dust!” when drinking a poor cup of tea, I really don’t think I’m a tea snob. Want to talk about your favorite tisane with jelly beans in it? I’m there. Want to talk about gyokuro and assam? Done. I welcome the chance to discuss all things tea and tea related because I’m that kind of nerd: a tea nerd. Other things I’m passionate about: my family: my husband and daughter and our Chihuahua and new cat; literature, and social justice. I have poor eyesight, a good temperament, an odd sense of humor and a lot of curiosity.
