From Harney & Sons

Assam, Ceylon and Keenum black teas with cornflowers and calendula. An uplifting blend to enjoy in the morning or any time of day.

Our Tokyo Breakfast is a refreshing blend of black teas that balance natural stridence with a full aroma and light, peppy body. A multidimensional combination of Assam, Ceylon, and Keemun black teas form the base, while fragrant cornflowers and calendula blossoms broaden the aroma. Enjoyed straight, it’s perfect as a wake-me-up brew on grey mornings; with a splash of milk, it’s a mellow, rewarding brew that perfectly complements a tray of baked goods.

Ingredients: Assam, Ceylon and Keemun black teas with cornflowers and calendula.

This is my favorite breakfast tea thus far. I took a chance on this one and I’m so glad I did! Its smoother than other breakfast teas I’ve had. It tastes great with just honey, but adding milk as well gives it a nice creamy flavor.

First infusion:
212F, 5 minutes, 2 scoops sugar in first. 1 sachet = 8-10oz of tea.
The tea has a deep auburn color that is absolutely beautiful. The leaves bloom in the sachet, taking up all of the space in the bag, and changes the water color from light to a dark auburn color somewhat quickly (maybe halfway through the steep). There is a strong black tea aroma, and hints of floral notes in the steam. The tea is both visually and fragrantly a delight.
Drinking the tea, it comes across smoother and less astringent than other breakfast teas I’ve had. The black tea tannins are softened by the floral ingredients, and the tea ends up with a honey flavor throughout the sip.

Second infusion:
same
The tea in both color and body lightened significantly, but didn’t taste watery as most teas I’ve had do upon the second infusion. The body and astringency reminded me of a green tea, and the honey taste was still there.

Flavors: Honey, Tea
