I’m never quite sure where to put the review for this tea, as it isn’t really the ‘summer’ blend, I don’t think, but the photo matches the current formula, so here it is. I really enjoyed the original formulation of this tea, but I think I enjoy the current formulation even more!
I love that this blend does not feature Darjeeling or Ceylon, favoring the Chinese teas that I love instead. My two favored Chinese blacks are in here giving a substantial chocolatey base, strengthened by the Jedi Master of Tea, master Han’s Shu. Add the sweet incense of Big Red Robe, & top it off with some thick & bright Bai Mu Dan. Yeah, baby!

This blend has seen various combinations since I first tried it, thanks to a sample Bonnie sent me when I first joined steepster. I hope Verdant will continue to let it evolve with whatever is in their cupboards, because I’m sure every version will be tasty. Call it Imperial Breakfast. Call it Imperial Breakfast Summer Blend. Call it whatever you like, I’ll call it delicious.

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!
