Thank you to the Teaguy for sending me a generous sample of this! I’m always on the hunt for a breakfast tea that stands out from the crowd, and the components of this one sounded unique due to the inclusion of Hao Ya A, a delicious Keemun that I’ve had the pleasure of drinking straight. My cup turned out smooth and virtually free of bitterness and that tannic aftertaste, but still brisk and malty enough to call itself a breakfast blend. Although it was wonderful without cream, I’ll try adding some next time!

If you count the bagged stuff, I’ve been a tea drinker for a long time. I first discovered the joys of loose leaf on a trip to London in 2014, and it’s all been downhill from there. I’m still in the phase where I want to try everything, and I’m still developing my tea personality.

Types of tea / tisanes I gravitate toward: black, green oolong, Japanese green, flavored teas (sweet, floral, fruity, minty, complex, you name it), rooibos, roasted mate, and many herbal and fruit combos.

Teas I need to try, try again, or keep trying: white, pu erh, dark oolong, pure Chinese green, mate

I’ll update soon with my rating system!
