Yep, a very light steep is the key to this tea. Anything more than about three minutes and it turns into something almost unbearably strong.
But, at three or less minutes, its a strong, but not aggressive blend.

I read that as “as a very light sleep” instead. Only to be consumed at breakfast after a particular quality of sleep haha.

My morning cup.
This is a bit touchy! I keep getting the bitter edge out, so I really need to keep an eye on my steep time here.

Ahhh. Its been a good while since I had this, and I am very happy to once again be drinking it.
Earthy without being heavy, and with a pleasant brightness, its a lovely thing on a cold morning.

drank Mint Rose by Zhena's Gypsy Tea

So, I checked. My last note on this was written three years ago, shortly after I got this tea. Three! Years! Eeek!
And I’ve only got two notes on it, and, judging from the amount still in the jar, I have not touched it since.
Whoops. Well, a perfect work tea candidate, then! Along it comes, to make my day more cheerful, and to get sipped down.
The good thing is that this an herbal that has aged very well. The mint and the rose still have their flaovrs, and I enjoyed the cup. Its not Earth shatteringly good (see-ignored for three years), but its pleasant.
It shall do well here.

That sounds really interesting! I’m so-so on Zhena’s stuff, but I haven’t seen that one before.

This tea, which is my current at-work tea, is the antithesis of the Cardamom French Toast. This is a very malty, very strong black tea blend.
I steeped it today as if it was a green tea, and that helped it from being too overpowering, I am glad to say. When brewed too long it turns into a sensation not unlike drinking a mahogany chair.

Hmmmm…I can picture this.

I wanted something very sweet and cozy this morning, and this meets that description perfectly.
Ahh. This is just such a nice winter tea!

I require caffeine. I require a lot of it.
Oh, Monday. You are a doozy!

drank Lapsang Chai by Bluebird Tea Co.

Tea of my morning. I wanted something strong and a bit spicy, and while this does meet those criteria, I am not convinced the flavors of the lapsang and of the chai really work together.

This was my morning pot, and I’m afraid that its a bit bitter this morning.
Its apparently one of the more sensitive of my blends, where a little too long in the pot can make it take a bitter edge.
Ehh. Oh well.

I don’t normally have black tea this late in the afternoon, and I hope it does not backfire, but I needed a pick me up.
As this nice little tea has been ignored, I decided it was high time to sip on it.
Its really nice! A pleasant melding of lavender and bergamot, and it is very refreshing!

I love tea! I confess that I was a hot chocolate lover for most of my life, but recently a switch has gone off in my brain, and suggested that I might just love tea. And I do!
I’m a bit of a novice, but an enthusiastic one, and am happily sipping new varieties all the time.
I love vanilla, fruity, and caramel flavors, and cant wait to try more.
