When Stacy made this blend, I felt that she really knew me, LOL.
This is the blend I wanted for the base of my custom blend. Then it sold out! And one of it’s components, the Hattialli Golden Lion, also sold out! Panic!! So today I’m drinking this one & it’s replacement, Malty Irish Breakfast side by side, just for fun, really.

I love the Khongea Golden Tippy Assam, which adds a rich bass-note & depth, & the Hattialli, which in mind is more of a smooth gentle middle, filling in the spaces, & I have some of both in my cupboard, because they are also nice alone. I don’t have any of the ceylon in my cupboard, as I’m not really much of a ceylon fan by itself, but it does brighten up the blend, giving it a lively finish.

The leaves on this one are slightly tippy-er than the newer version, but otherwise they look about the same, & really, both cups are pretty similar. (to be continued)

Good Ceylon makes tea blends SPARKLE :)
Glad that you found a worthy replacement to your old favorite. There is nothing more crushing than to have your favorite be discontinued sob

Bio

I’m so excited to have found this community! I’m a self-employed Harpist (acoustic & electric – Originals, Classical, Rock, Jazz, etc) & Singer/Songwriter. My days & nights revolve around teaching at home, playing gigs, gardening,& fixing awesome food to eat. My schedule is different everyday, but I just go with the flow, & I sip a lot of tea!

My love of Tea began with Herbals back in the 70’s. One of my favorites was a licorice blend from House of Hezekiah, an old tea shop in Kansas City. There was also a tea with mint, rose petals, chamomile, etc called Nuclear Casual Tea.
In the 80’s I gave up caffeine, chocolate, alcohol, (& a few illicit substances…), and brewed medicinal blends & tinctures to support 4 pregnancies (all children born at home). In the 90’s my love affair with green teas began when I discovered ‘The Republic of Tea’. Their beautiful teas & packaging inspired my original song, “TeaMind”, from my CD “Zen Breakfast”. If you’d like to hear the song for free, drop by my website.

In general, I drink my teas straight, but occasionally I add a pinch of Stevia & maybe some coconut or almond milk (I’m allergic to dairy, gluten, & various other things & avoid most sweets.)

I’ve explored a variety of teas:
Whites tend to be a little bland…sorry
Oolongs – wonderfully sensual
Roobios – I’m not a fan in general
Puehr – a fairly new direction for me
I’m not a huge fan of flavored teas, but I do make exceptions, & I’ll try just about anything once.

And Black Tea, Oh how I love thee!!
I am on a quest for the most wonderful breakfast cup! I will find you, my Love!
