From Sanctuary T

This blend of Ceylon and Indonesian tea leafs adds a special kick to the “classic black morning tea.” The addition of Ceylon in particular makes this blend truly a breakfast tea as the citrus of the Ceylon makes this a perfect tea to be paired with a nice plate of bacon and scrambled eggs.

I got the Plum District deal for Sanctuary T, and used it to get a lot of teasers! This is one that I’ve been interested in for a bit…I’m currently having a mild obsession with different breakfast blends. English, Irish, Scottish, French, New England…I’ve been browsing all kinds of them at various online shops (it’s a miracle I haven’t ordered them all). So, when I was perusing the Sanctuary T site plotting what to get, and saw Soho Breakfast, I couldn’t pass it up.

It’s a good, solid, robust blend. It’s got a creamy, hearty mouthfeel, and I can taste notes of bakiness (is that a real word?), and something almost like vanilla, but kind of citrusy as well. It’s definitely a good first cup o’ the morning. I think that next time, though, I’ll brew at 5 minutes to see what happens. I have a feeling that this would be even better if it were stronger.

I know what you mean about breakfast blends. What is it about them that inspire such completionistism and collector feelings?

It’s like I have to know what makes each of them different. Someday, when I’ve got a solid collection of breakfast blends (I’ve only got, oh, about 6 right now), I plan on doing a side by side, cup by cup comparison so I am able to definitively know the nuances between the blends. I’m afraid the obsession is spilling over to chais now, too…

I found this bold and it truly woke me up this morning but maybe too much I am not sure. All I know is that it was bold, hearty, slightly malty. However, it maybe just a little too strong for me so when I am finished, I am finished.
