From Peet's Coffee & Tea

This year’s Anniversary Breakfast Blend gets its brilliance from Yin Jun Mei, a newcomer from the Wuyi Mountains this China black tea was developed in 2005. Yin Jun Mei translates literally as “Silver Beautiful Eyebrow” in acknowledgement of the delicate curved ‘eyebrow’ shape of the leaf. On its own it’s smooth honey, woody and bright, with a fresh dry cocoa note.

Dig into this tea and you’ll soon find some long, thin, thoroughly black leaf. This is classic Ceylon whole leaf from southern Sri Lanka is one of the top ten among the more than 1,000 tea gardens on the island. Bright, tangy, and citrusy.

Dig a little deeper and you’ll experience a solid malty Assam flavor, indispensable in breakfast teas. Last but not least there’s a dash of sweet and floral high-grown from a “secret garden” that . . . will remain secret.

In any case, the blend should be more than the sum of its parts. The 2013 release is full bodied, pungent but sweet, malty and chocolaty, bright and complex.

A few days ago I was musing on reading leaves, & commented that the leaves in my cup formed the shape of a seagull, & that a bird symbolizes the arrival of a message or package. Wouldn’t ya know, that very day I received my tea trade from Spencer!. Also, that very same day, the box Sil had sent to me over a month ago, which we were both mourning the loss of & were convinced that it was lost, was returned to her. So maybe I have a future reading tea leaves? :D

I’d just like to say that Spencer is an interesting dude! I posted a pic of the box he sent on my FB

And I am really enjoying this tea! The combination of Jin Jun Mei (which I love), with ceylon (which I’m not entirely crazy about, but will drink, & besides, it’s not too prominent here), & Malty Assam? Yeah, Baby, oh yeah! Thanks, Spencer! This is my first tea from Pete’s, & I’ll definitely be looking to grab more of this one!


IF you like lapsang blends I can send you a sample of the Peet’s Scottish Breakfast.


Is peet’s something we can get in US and/or canada? I want tea! i’m itching to buy things teeerrriiiiiii…esp since i found mariage freres and fortnum and mason here in toronto.


I swear there used to be a storefront Peet’s in Vancouver, however I’m struggling to find it now. You can order from their website though, and it’s USPS shipping.


@Sil – Peet’s is a US coffee/tea chain, I don’t think they have any stores in canada but I could be wrong

Amy, I would love that!
This anniversary blend is very tasty, IMO, especially if you enjoy Jin Jun Mei, which I do.
Sil…looks like it may be time for us to split orders again…:)

I got this as an anniversary present! A propos, right? Oh my gosh, where to start: first of all, it is so good. Yum. Lots of flavors and nuances going on but all harmonizing gorgeously. You’ve got your sweet, malty, mouth-puckeringness and a little smoke and a little earthiness. Total tea party in one blend. Love!


Sounds delicious. Is it heavy?


In a good way!

Terri HarpLady

It does sound tasty!


Last cup made, tin is empty. So very…very empty. This tea turned out to be a favorite, I started drinking it each morning. Sometimes at night I’d go to sleep all smiley thinking, “ah tomorrow morning, can’t wait for that tea!”

This is a curious blend – it smells and tastes strongly of chocolate, but it isn’t actually flavored, it’s supposedly just tea. The smell and flavor are both a mix of smooth, un-sweet dark chocolate over a base of faintly woodsy and (very faintly) smoky, but otherwise indistinct black tea.

I’m not wowed, and I don’t really see this as a breakfast blend, but it’s very drinkable, smooth and pleasant, with a nice aroma and simple flavor. When I want a tasty tea, but I don’t feel like I am in the space to properly appreciate one of my more expensive and complex single-origins, and I don’t want the morning punch of Russian Caravan, I can see myself reaching for this. The chocolate is remarkably distinct, I don’t know how they did it, but it makes this stand out above the average smooth and inoffensive blend in a major way, letting you know this was blended with care.
