17 Tasting Notes

Fragrantly-vanilla and lightly coconut-sweet, this unconventional take on the Indian chai recipe is peppery enough to perk your taste buds and accessible enough to be enjoyed without softening it with milk (though that would certainly be a fine way to drink it, too). For black tea, this is very smooth. All of the ingredients gently converge into a tasty harmony. If it were a color, I believe it would be periwinkle.

This is a pleasant black tea, very appropriate for breakfast as the name suggests. The vanilla is subtle (which I prefer) and the lavender flowers are more present, though without being too overbearing. The lavender also seems to make this tea slightly peppery, which is unique enough to keep me thinking about it throughout the morning. The black tea itself is just fine – nothing remarkable, though I would not consider that to be a drawback at all.

As far as complex blends go, this one is not bad. The mint is really dominant, and the other herbs provide quite grassy undertones and aftertaste. Despite the name and description in the store’s catalog, this tea actually has quite an edge (again, the grassy). I enjoyed drinking the small bag I got, but for some reason this one didn’t stick with me personally.
