47 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.
