My breakfast tea today was the Ginger Peach Black from The Republic of Tea. Its an interesting tea to begin with because of the ginger. I didn’t really ever think about ginger being in a tea… but really it makes a lot of sense. Ginger has a unique taste that somewhat difficult to explain other than to say that it’s Asian…y. It only works some of the time and only works with some things. for example… this tea is a good morning tea because it has the acid of the peach and the spice form the ginger. it woke me up well and got me thinking. I said “self… Do ya think this would be a good iced tea???” and i replied…“ahh, its worth a try isn’t it.” This iced concoction is currently chilling in my fridge and we shall see how it goes. but over all this is a fantastic tea for a cold, rainy, Ohio morning.

Cha Yen Thai Black is one of my utmost favorite blends of all time. it’s spectacular. its spiced but not spicy, with a nice twist of the star anise and and nutty overtones from the almonds. It’s Perfect…PERFECT I SAY!!!!! i love it. brew it strong, mix with sugar and milk. AHHHHHH…So good.

drank Earl Grey Creme by Teavana

In understanding that earl gray is a tad over-rated, I’m a sucker for it. i just cant help it. It’s the bergamot, i think. really wakes me up in the morning. Then, all of a sudden i found a variation on the norm with hints of creme and Madagascar vanilla to bring out the wonderful mixture with the acid of the bergamot orange. Love it love it loveit

Check out Upton’s Earl Grey Creme Vanilla … for about the same price, you get almost 4 times as much as Teavana’s. I haven’t tried Teavana’s, so don’t know how they compare though (really like Upton’s though).

drank Azteca Fire by Teavana

This was a tad different to me but i am not unhappy that i decided to get some. i picked some up in the kenwood mall store in ohio and at the time, the azteca fire was 3.95 for 2 oz. some i figured " what the heck!" and went to town. As i road home with my friend and got my hopes up i continued to sniff the bag. When i got home, it was the first batch on and while it brewed, it smelled fantastic. This, however changed after it was finished. I feel like it lost all kinds of personality when it finished brewed and the taste was mediocre at best. The flavor profile was alright, kinda complex in using peppers, chocolate, and strawberries. i feel like the chocolate was a little overpowering, so much so the you only get a little pepper and really no strawberry at all. After all is said and done, i really do like the azteca fire tea, it’s just not all its cracked up to be.

drank Jasmine Oolong by Teavana

I enjoy this tea very much. I think the the flowery nature of the Jasmine makes it a wonderful late kind of drink. i think, if brewed more than once with the same batch, it has a tendency it be a tad more overpowering.
