45 Tasting Notes
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.
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! : )
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!
