Light hints of cocoa and spice dance around the subtle earthy flavor of the black tea creating a lovely small sized cup of tea. Not full bodied enough to truly stand up to the addition of milk of any kind. Extra nice with the addition of a little sweetening.

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.

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…

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.
