I loved Teatoxy’s Calm Me blend, and went through my bag of that so quickly it was unreal. Now that it’s gone, I’m starting to give this one more of a look-in. It’s such a variable tea, it’s actually quite surprising! My last cup was pale pink, with notes of hibiscus, lemongrass, apple and peppermint. This time, the liquor is a deeper red-brown, and the only flavours I can detect are hibiscus and lemongrass, in that order. Strangely, though, I’m not looking on this as a bad thing. For a morning tea, it’s tart freshness is actually quite welcome in a “blow away the cobwebs” kind of way. I guess my experience with this tea varies depending on the exact make up of each scoop of tea. The ingredients are so huge, it can be difficult to get a balanced distribution. In some ways, that just makes it all the more intriguing!
I like lemongrass, so the fresh citrussy burst of flavour here is very welcome. I’m less keen on hibiscus, but it’s not super tart or sour here, so I actually don’t mind it being a part of things. Morning is quickly becoming my second favourite Teatoxy blend. Although their range is small at the moment, I’m quickly beginning to think of their teas as being effective and of reliable quality, in addition to being fairly unique! A company I hope to see more of in future.
