Full review tomorrow March 28th 2013 on here are snippits:

Orange Peppercorn Breakfast from Handmade Tea has everything I love in a breakfast blend! Its deep and robust, perfectly sweetened naturally and lightly by the citrus, with a wake me up spark from the peppercorns. It tastes a little like a mimosa with a kick and trust me I need a kick in the morning!

I love Caleb’s Handmade Tea! I have only received two months thus far but both have been beyond expectation and somehow I feel as though he has been stalking my tasting notes to figure out exactly what I want in a tea! I realize that is not possible as he has so many people who subscribe to his membership plan, there is no way he could stalk us and appease us all, but I tell you what, somehow he has managed to please my taste buds perfectly!

So super excited. Came home from a week long vacation, to this tea waiting for me. I had an awesome vacation but I was trying to play “tourist” and some family members that were with us thought everything was too expensive. Sigh. Its been a long week.

This is actually March’s handmade tea, but the shipping took a bit longer to get to me. So far I am super impressed. It came well packaged, a tin with a unique label. And there was also small tins of each individual ingredient so you can smell and taste each ingredient individual and together. And the best part, there was a card, and the envelope had a wax seal on it. Yup! Awesome.

So the tea. It smells like a basic breakdast tea with very faint sweet citrus smell. I would say there is a “kick to it”, which would be the peppercorns.

The tea is a strong breakfast with mild citrus flavour, there is definitely a spice/peppery-ness to it. But it is not a strong spice. It is also slightly sweet.

As it cools, it tastes creamy.

I am not normally a breakfast tea drinker, what I mean by that is, I don’t usually drink breakfast blends, I drink Earl Grey in the morning.

Looking forward to many more months of handmade tea.

Backlog from Saturday Afternoon

I’ve been a fan of peppercorn in tea since I had Della Terra’s Lemon Pepper Melange. This is a delightfully warming blend. The base is delicious! It is golden-tasting, malty, bready and substantial. I like the peppercorn- it is strong, but not too overwhelming. It’s just enough to spread the warmth of the base. The orange peel does add some sweetness while it is hot, but turns just the slightest bit bitter as it cools, but that’s ok because I like this one so much, I don’t think I’d let it get cold. Yum! I have a feeling this will be something I’m going to be having on wintery mornings on my way to work.


oh and thanks, Nicole_Martin, for this tea!
