Tea of the morning.
I may be having this one more often in the morning. It turns out that my youngest kind of likes it to get his day going. It is funny that he normally drinks a few sips of coffee in the morning and thinks it makes a difference. He thinks this one makes him peppy, which is a good thing since it takes him so long to wake up for his 6:30am bus.
In comparison to Chocolate Rocket…it works and is much more economical. But I am ordering the Rocket today for a treat. I will probably have to share it….. ;)
Tea of the morning…..
Yum. I have missed this. Because I get up so early, and having been sick, I have been drinking a lighter tea in the morning so that I could crash again. But today is Saturday!
I love Saturdays because I get to sleep in. I know I sound like a slug, but the school day starts way too early in this town (bus at 6:30am). I could leave my kids to fend for themselves in the morning, but I don’t think they would eat a good breakfast on their own. I don’t really care if they skimp on other meals….just not breakfast.
My tea of the morning…. Man, I need this. We are in the midst of getting a new roof today. Wow, is it loud! The funny part, so far my 11 yo son is sleeping through it. I find it funny that he is unable to fall asleep until late at night (he is a voracious reader, and gets in trouble for reading too late into the night all the time. I realize it is a funny problem to have!) But, he can sleep through all this racket with no problem.
I am running low on the Florence, and have decided to repurchase it afterall. It is way too good in this blend. I am going to start rating my yerba mate blends, because I don’t really benefit monetarily in any way, and you are free to blend up your own!
Chocolatey with hazelnut overtones. Good solid tea base that complements the flavors, and the chocolatey notes in the yerba mate just add more chocolate to the mix.
My morning tea….. I am just getting home from vacation and need a serious jumpstart. After drinking JavaVana Mate in the mornings for the last week (I bagged it for ease of use), I made a pot of this one my first morning home. Good, but I think I like the blend with Vanilla Black and rosted yerba mate much better, and the JavaVana Mate has a slight edge over this blend in taste but not price. The Rosted Yerba Mate was also good with English Breakfast (not sure I logged that one), and I still need to try it with The Queen, Valentine’s Blend, and Tower of London. Oh, so much tea, so little time. ;)
Time to brew something else!
My tea of the morning…. This is definitely on my list of favorite morning teas. It seems this works best for flavor if I make my standard pot of tea with the additon of a slightly heaping perfect tsp (mine is actually 1 1/2 tsp). I measured it out to be 2.3 grams of Rosted Yerba Mate….I need to break out that scale more often. I think the first time I made this, I was a little light on the Florence.
24 oz. teapot, 4 1/2 actual tsp Florence, 1 1/2 actual tsp Roasted Yerba Mate, freshly boiled water, 5 minutes, lightly sweetened.
