This is a CTC (crush, tear, curl) tea so instead of whole leaves, the tea leaves were ground into nuggets – I was expecting it to be bitter….but lo and behold- no bitterness. in fact, it was “meaty”. and perfect for a AM cup….I need to try this one a few more times but after experimenting with a gazillion breakfast blends, this one is defintiely a keeper….

Just learned a new term: CTC :D This one sounds intriguing indeed! ::adds to list::

Lori

Yes it is very good….

Jim Marks

Is this similar to a Scottish breakfast tea, then? Those are usually l’il nuggets.

Dan

Their Mountain Malt was so good that I may have to try this one.

Our London Cuppa tea is like that. I just brew it for two minutes instead of five and it is pretty good!

I’ve eyeing this tea. Meaty sounds good! I’m really loving breakfast blends nowadays.

Dan- I ordered the Mountain Malt based on your tasting notes! I will need to try both the American Blend and Mountain Malt side by side…On a good note, the Simple Leaf sells generous sample sizes for $5 bucks..

And about Scottish blend, I have not tried that before so I do not know…

Bio

Just a few months ago the only tea I drank was hot lipton tea at work, an occasional mint tea, and sweet iced tea.. Then my daughter got me some loose leaf teas for Christmas and then, my tea addiction began…..

And what better way to get lots of dessert flavors w/o the calories?

I prefer my tea with a tinge of sugar. Is that cheating? But to me , the combination of sugar and tea is like salt and cooking- both bring out the natural flavors.

My tea drinking has evolved into a set routine: a breakfast blend in the AM, some flavored blacks during the day, late afternoon or evening flavored green/white, herbal (usually spicy, chai inspired) at night.

Not into unflavored greens/whites yet. Just started appreciating unflavored blacks and am thinking that smoky teas may become my favorite…
When I am not drinking tea, I am working as an engineer, reading, watching some of the better TV shows (like Damages and Breaking Bad), practicing my yoga, cooking, gardening, and spoiling my two miniature poodles (Coco and Timmy)…
