drank Morning Mojo by The Tea Spot
301 tasting notes

Company says, “Wake up, Buttercup! Morning Mojo’s boost will help you take charge of the day. This breakfast blend pairs Pu-erh with the ideal black teas to create a perfectly rounded morning cuppa.”

I had a tea satchet sample of this for free from an order.

I know it shouldn’t matter as much, but I love the creativity and care The Tea Spot puts into their packaging designs, including customized bags sealed for these satchets.

I have to say that if you look through the reviews on the website, this is a re-vamped blend. Pre-Organic label, they used a different vanilla, and some fans loved the old version but not the new version. I double-checked I have the newer blend which says organic, so I have no idea if the older blend was actually better or not — the organic trend usually annoys me — but to comply with organic rules they had to change the vanilla which is more artificial apparently.

That said, I really liked this. I was surprised how much. I’m a newb with Pu-erh, but have not had stellar experience with it previously. This one is warming, delightful all around good morning tea. Very good with breakfast and brunch and high in caffeine. Will order more of this one for my keeper shelf.

Bio

I have a drink obsession in general – daily lattes and coffees, and of course teas of many varieties. I mainly drink hot tea in Florida, but still enjoy the occasional southern sweet iced.

My preference is black tea, although I’m open to trial and error with others. I like the old fashioned English style tea cups, tea parties, food pair-ups, mini desserts and pies, cubes of sugar, small collection of Rose Red tea pets, you get the idea. I will always have an old fashioned tea kettle on the stove, but have recently purchased an electric tea kettle that I absolutely adore. I’m lazy by nature, so I have switched to stuffing tea bags for the loose teas to save on clean-up and disposal with other strainers.

I love smokey teas, non-bitter, not overly astringent, strong tea background mixed with flavored teas, no artificial sweetener tastes, balanced florals IF there must be a floral. I used to love spice, but it has to be done right. A former chai fan – now it reminds me of colored pencils. Cinnamon sounds good but so many teas have it artificial or odd tasting. Same goes for chocolate, some things have to be done just right to work.

Most missed tea place and tea: Plum Brandy Cheesecake by Butiki

Very picky with anything Roobios, and Darjeeling/Oolong are hit or miss depending on the blend and my taste buds. Mint works in a mood but I’m not a big fan. Gravitate toward good name blends and fall themes when doing yet more sampler orders.

I like adding a cube of sugar to almost all teas, not usually milks. I don’t like stevia or any artificial sweetener taste. I adore honey, but to me it doesn’t suit tea unless I have a sore throat as both the tea and the honey change their flavor profile quite a bit if I mix them.
