I’ve magnanimously said in the past that there isn’t a black tea that I don’t love, but I may have to recant. This blend, I guess, takes more fine-tuning than I want to devote to a morning tea. Smells just like I want a breakfast tea to smell; it’s fruity and starchy on top; but at the base is a bitterness that stays on the back of your tongue.

But if you like your breakfast blends at monster strength, here you go.

I am also a black tea super fan! Find it really hard not to like one :-) But if astringency turns to bitterness, I’m out!

Bio

Somebody asked me once when I became a tea junkie; I think it dates back to college when I needed caffeine for a 7 a.m. class but chose not to do coffee. My favorite teapot is a medium-sized Brown Betty given to me by my Mema; the painted flowers are chipping off, but the size and feel is perfect. I rejoice when I get a morning to brew a pot of loose tea starting with a kettle; not a bag and a hot pot.
