First off, thank god I am alone in my home because I am pretty sure I look like a psycho. I literally cannot stop smiling as I go through all the surprise teas MissB sent my way. There are so many ones I have been DYING to try! It is like she knows…I think she might be inside my head :P. Anyways, THANK YOU SO MUCH MISSB!!! I don’t think I will ever be able to thank you enough for your generosity.
On to this tea…
This has been in my sample box for a few weeks now and today when I opened it up to send some to Josie Jade, I decided to give it a try myself. The smell of the dry leaf was wonderfully cinnamon and maple. The taste is very similar. It is like having a thick slice of French Toast (that got a good dash of cinnamon in the batter) with maple syrup. Frank really does know how to blend a delicious breakfast tea.
Actually, I worried this would be the exact same as Pancake Breakfast but it is quite different. This has less maple and the mouthfeel is not as thick. Plus the cinnamon really sets the two apart. As much as I love Pancake Breakfast, I think this is a tea I could drink more often as it still captures the breakfast taste without being as dense (which of course is part of the charm of Pancake Breakfast but hard to drink everyday).
Oh and for anyone wondering, I used 2 tsps for 16 oz of water and brewed the tea for two minutes in water that was slightly below boiling. Came out quite well!
