Morning Cup #54 - Organic Green Jasmine

My mug decided on a nice lightly floral Organic Green Jasmine from Hampstead Tea this morning.

This black tea blend has a wonderfully matched black tea with what taste like orange with a hint of pineapple. The aroma contains mostly orange and lemon scents. I think the black tea is a Ceylon, but I have no confirmation of that. Either way, give this one a try.

Morning Cup #51 - Naked Strawberry Green Tea

*This is a little late due to some database issues this morning, but thanks for holding out and being patient!*

In my cup this morning steeped a tasty Naked Strawbeery Green Tea from Fully Loaded Tea.

I've always liked the Fully Loaded Teas. Their packaging is bright and colorful. Its vibrance alone perks me up a bit.

This specific tea seems to play a bit of confusion on the palate. I taste the fruitiness with the tart expected from strawberries, but there's something almost dry about the palate texture itself which I cannot place. Not bad per's but unexpected.

The aroma is very light with hints of fruitiness and subtle hints at a natural sweetness.

Morning Cup #50 - Organic Lemon Valerian

It's hard to believe a couple months ago I started this daily morning cup series. I hope you find it interesting. These don't go into as much detail as my regular in-depth reviews or my other content, but I hope you like them nonetheless.

I chose this Organic Lemon Valerian from Hampstead Tea for my cup this morning.

Smooth and light is how I would describe this brew. The Valerian root adds a nice relaxing touch this morning.

In both the flavor and aroma there are undertones of Lemon mixed amongst a couple even more subtle hints at hay and citrus spice.

Morning Cup #49 - Organic Peppermint

I woke up on the grumpy side of the bed this morning. So, I instantly gravitated to this Organic Peppermint from Taylors of Harrogate to soothe my nerves.

Crisp and clean, this tea remains invigorating throughout the infusion. I think it's best hot, but even chilled a bit it proves quite refreshing.

The aroma and flavor are spot on what I expected and was hoping for.

I'm enjoying a nice light Organic African Nectar in my cup this Morning from Mighty Leaf Tea, who happen to have 20% off selected tea gifts today!

This rooibos smells and tastes of invigorating citrus. The texture on the tongue is smoother than anticipated. A pleasant surprise actually. It makes this tea easy to drink all day!
