drank My Morning Mate by Teavana
2816 tasting notes

This came in a swap from Ze_Teamaker – thank you for the generous sample!

I really needed a kick start this morning; of course that’s how I feel every morning because I normally don’t feel awake and fully functional until around 10 AM. When the alarm goes off at 6 it is PAINFUL!

I thought this was actually a nice brew, the combo of the black tea and mate has a slight sweet hazelnut flavor. Not sure what the spice element is here but it’s a bit like a chai, I’m enjoying it. I made mine with soymilk and it’s good that way. I AM feeling slightly more awake! This is pretty good stuff… now back to work! (sound of whip cracking)

Boiling 5 min, 0 sec

Yay! I’m glad that you’re enjoying it.

Hobbies include: tea, making art, animals, vegan things, buddhism, nature, creativity, books, writing, cooking, meditation, yoga.

I am a fan of many different teas but my favorites are blacks and oolongs, chai, also like darjeeling and pu-erh. I’n always learning and expanding my horizons!

Dislikes include: bergamot, jasmine, highly tannic or bitter teas, overly judgmental and bitter people. :)

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta

95-100 I love this tea and would like to keep it around

94-90 An excellent tea which I may or may not repurchase

89-80 Pretty good, above average

79-70 Acceptable

69-60 Mundane – Will probably drink it if I have it

59-50 Ick

49 and below Nasty
