From Perennial Tea Room

Mountain Morning is a shop favorite for its bold nutty flavor with undertones of cacao. We love it in the morning black, or with milk and sugar, or any time of day for a bracing pick-me-up. We often describe this as a “tea for coffee-lovers” because the taste of the tea evokes the smell and feel of a dark roast coffee. Brew it for 3 minutes for a balanced cup, or push it to a 4 minute steep to bring out the bitter notes that make it taste even more similar to coffee.

This is a sample sipdown!

I regret that I didn’t save a teaspoon for gmathis because this is right up her alley. This is a tea that will boot you out of bed and out the door and quite possibly out of the county in the morning.

With food, it is simply a warm chestnut blend, but if you are not eating or if it is not actively washing breakfast down, it has some surprising heft. It isn’t as coppery as builder’s tea tends to be but it does have a lot of oomph.

Yum! Making a note of it, anyway.

Wow. Wow! Wow.
When I picked this up, I chose it based on a preliminary whiff from the sample jar and, in conjunction with the name, was of the impression this was a straightforward pancake or sticky bun blend. Syrupy, rich, warm, nutty, and raisiny, I smelled everything I got from Tin Roof’s oatmeal raisin cookie blend and assumed this traditional breakfast in a cup was pieced from similar ingredients. However, peeking at the credits on the website, I am stunned to see that I was wrong. Now of course I am happily surprised to recognize this warm, toasty-sweet character is unmistakably chestnut. Still, the tea carries a golden lyons quality heralding the phantom presence of dates and sultanas.

What distinguishes this one from TRT oatmeal raisin cookie is partly the base. The malty assam really shines through with a little dryness despite the heavy smog of added flavoring and, notably, this blend leans into its nutty nature to derive its warmth as opposed to oatmeal raisin cookie with its spice. The comparability of the blends is simultaneously exactly what I expected and a pleasant surprise.

I have never tried TRT Oatmeal Raisin Cookie but based on your review it sounds like you may prefer this one?
