Morning Cup #20 – Sandman PM

MorningCup Morning Cup #20   Sandman PM

Today’s cup is an herbal from Stash Tea called Sandman PM.

Until recently I haven’t  normally been drinking an herbal tea first thing in the morning. I often need more of a pick-me-up. However, this Sandman PM has been eying me for a while. At least I sure feel like I could use a visit from the sandman today.

The brew is rather light. The most dominant aroma and flavor is chamomile. The liquor is a pleasant golden color.

Something fruity today, a nice Pure Ceylon Strawberry tea from Dils Tea / Tea Packs USA.

This brew is fairly strong compared to what I was expecting.

The flavor and aroma, are fairly strong. The scent of strawberry is easily discernable even before you open the package.

This morning I’ve got a tea from PeLi Teas in my cup called Wuyi Rou Gui.

A nice light brew, this Wuyi Hou Gui offers a subtle aroma.

The flavor and body are interesting. A rocky Wuyi texture with a Tie Kuan Yin style body and flavor profile.

This morning I’ve got another tea from Mighty Leaf. A Rainforest Mate (mah-tay).

This tea brews up a nice amber liquor accompanied by a lightly spiced aroma.

The flavor is balanced and comforting with slightly spicy notes in the tail, but fruitier notes in the body.

Morning Cup #16 – Lichee Black Tea

MorningCup Morning Cup #16   Lichee Black Tea

Some more friends in the industry provided me with some of this Lichee Black Tea from Foojoy.

Foojoy is a Chinese brand distributed here in The States by Eastrise Trading Company.

For those unfamiliar with Lichee (also Lychee), this funny named item is a deliciously sweet and tart fruit.

This brew came out a bit darker than expected. The flavor was lightly brisk in the tail but with a comforting fruitiness.
