What a way to wake up, breakfast in bed and new teas from The Tea Merchant!

First adventure into non-Teavana teas. Does not disappoint! I haven’t really liked earl grey teas, but now I think that is because of the quality I had.

Dry: Fresh vanilla and bergamot invites the senses. Leaves look terrific and I can see little blue pieces of flowers.

1 tsp to 8oz. Dark amber color. Strong and robust for me. Rich vanilla and bergamot. I mixed with some rock sugar and cream, and so divine! Will have to try pure next time. Great morning tea. Can’t wait to try the other teas I bought from The Tea Merchant during the 40% off sale. This might just encourage me to try more black teas as usually I’m more into oolong and herbals.

A hot pot of tea was always a staple in my childhood. Mom used to get these wonderful herbal teas that were just so comforting.

Leaving home, I would always enjoys the gifts of tea from my mom, but could never find the same satisfying experiences from Celestial Seasoning and similar brands. I lost my way from tea for many years.

Recently a friend introduced me to Teavana loose teas. What a treat and re-awakening of my love for tea. Now I can’t get enough of this new “world of tea”. What a fun journey to embark on!
