1 heaping TB for 500mL water, no milk or sweetener.
Rough time waking up this morning. My yerba mate tisance disappointed, and the caffeine monkey on my back started to jabber. So, a little pot of English Breakfast standing by, but first: this strange hybrid elixir.
If you’re in the mood for straight black tea, don’t drink this.
If you need a good smack upside the head and feel bold, drink this.
This morning’s brew is chewy, sweet, smooth, dark and mysterious, and just a tiny bit chicory-bitter on the aftertaste. The coffee beans feed my caffeine monkey, and the China black tea smooths everything out. I still need a good hit of Assam, but that wll follow.
As I’ve said before, a strange fusion drink, hardly a regular or go-to for me, but always satisfying.
