I have the pleasure of trying this thanks to Jessica! Wow, LiberTEAS knows how to do chai. I made this using the stovetop method and it is perfect. Every spice in harmony, smooth black tea, and rich creamy tea. I am only sad that I don’t have any more of this for another day.

LiberTEAS

I am happy to hear that you enjoyed it!

I was putting off making tea tonight because I couldn’t decide on a particular flavor. Enter this lovely green by LiberTEAS…just the perfect thing to sip while watching a movie.

drank Breakfast Blend by Liber Teas
902 tasting notes

Happy New Year! Here’s to good things happening in 2011.

I’m starting off 2011 with my favorite breakfast blend. I’ve managed to get a fair amount of this in my stash (thanks to LiberTEAS and Meghann!), but I know that all too soon it will be gone. It’s easily a tea I could drink every day and never get tired of. Smooth, gentle, slightly astringent and just the right amount of vanilla. Perfect for gently waking me up and welcoming in the new year.

Had this tea once again and it was great. I’m so sad that I won’t be able to get this blend again. I will enjoy it while it lasts though.

Brewed this quadruple-strong, let it steep for a good long time, and served it with cream and sugar. It’s my perfect coffee alternative this late afternoon.

Half of my tin is gone. D:

I had this tea earlier and it was perfect as always. It was a delicious tea to have before my nap. I am definitely rationing this one.

Backlogging.

I must have been having a bit of a dud night because I am already hoarding this tea and drinking it only occasionally as it is a bit of a different change from the usually ‘sleepytime’ blends. It was, as usual, very drinkable and I consumed two cups like snap.

2nd steep: 9 min 30 sec.

drank Breakfast in Bed by Liber Teas

This was probably the most exciting sample out of my SororiTEA Sisters prize package – I hadn’t gotten to try any of LiberTEAS’ creations before! And it’s lovely. Smells like a cinnamon roll, but the light pastry kind, not the heavy buttery side. I wouldn’t have guessed that rose, cinnamon, and vanilla would go so well together but they really do.

This is light, sweet, and delicious without anything added.

Made another pot of this last night to share between my brother, my boyfriend, and myself. Served it with vanilla cream and sugar again. Yum. This has been my go-to comfort tea lately.

drank Sweet Caramel O Mine by Liber Teas
457 tasting notes

Tasting a sample cup of this thanks to LiberTeas, who sent it to me. I love anything caramel, so I was pretty excited when I saw that she had included it.

The first thing I noticed about the scent and taste of this tea is the smell of real caramel. It reminds me of how my mother makes it at home, on the stovetop. It has that sort of… not smoky exactly, but heat-involved taste, if that makes any sense. This tea is delightfully smooth and creamy without actually adding cream. I’m still finishing my first (and only) cup, and I’m a fan. Mmmm.

I think I’m going to have “Sweet Child Of Mine” stuck in my head all day now…

LiberTEAS is one of the true genius tea blenders. This floral chamomile blend is fantastic…just floral enough without being perfumey. It’s just what I needed this evening to send off the day.

I broke out my coveted purple tin of this and made a super strong cup this morning after dropping my boyfriend off at work. I added the vanilla cream I’ve been using a lot, and sugar. It was perfect… something steamy and sweet before going out into the cold to my car. There’s just something about cinnamon and autumn…

drank Sweet Caramel O Mine by Liber Teas
902 tasting notes

I didn’t find out about LiberTEAS’s company until after it had closed…yes, once I read about her blends, I had an incredible sad. LiberTEAS, bless her, kindly sent me some of her teas in a swap, and I’ve been fortunate enough to get a very small supply of her Breakfast Blend on hand (it’s the best ever, and yes, I’m hoarding the stuff).

In my awesome swap box from Meghann, she had nearly a full tin of this tucked into it, as well as my beloved Breakfast Blend!! Yes, I squealed like a little girl. Actually, probably more like a tweenage girl watching Twilight, squealing when Edward appears on the screen. You would have laughed.

I’m slightly worried about this, not going to lie. I’ve not been having the best of luck with caramel teas here lately, but I know if anyone can do a tea right, it’s LiberTEAS. After all, her Masterpiece Chai is, well, a masterpiece.

She’s not let me down. It’s bold, in your face, and awesome. Creamy and caramel, but without that “burnt” taste that I’ve been finding in other caramel blends. I’m seriously considering making a T-sac full of this, taking it to Cuppa, and begging Lisa to make me a latte out of it with caramel syrup (I’m crap at making lattes at home). This is delicious. Debating adding a smidge of sugar to this, but I honestly don’t think it needs it. Nom, nom, nom!!

Yay, glad it was another winner:)

It’s great! There’s not been a single one of her teas that I’ve tried that haven’t been fantastic.

Testing out my latest batch (and probably my last batch). Yummy – if I do say so myself. The caramel is sweet but not too sweet – the Assam malty.

I’ve really missed this blend!

Would that batch be for sale?

I steeped this for less time or at a lower water temperature and ended up with a first steep that was moar vanilla and less bite and more similar to the second steep.

2nd steep: 5 min.
