I love black teas. I love breakfast teas. I love Chai. Therefore I am not surprised that I was eager to try Bombay Breakfast from The Jasmine Pearl Tea Company.
It is said that Bombay Breakfast is ‘surprisingly popular’ among their customers. With flavor and quality like this I don’t think it’s such a surprise, really. I think it deserves the praise. It’s gently malty, a little spicy, and a tad floral. I don’t think it’s as spicy or as intense as some chais I have had but its flavor is just dandy. .
The Jasmine Pearl Tea Company says this is an excellent morning tea and I completely agree. I start each and every day with at least 1 (or 5) black based teas so I am always looking for more to put into rotation. They also suggest Bombay Breakfast to accompany almost any dessert. I have yet to put that to the test but I just might have to soon!
The aroma and the taste of Bombay Breakfast from The Jasmine Pearl Tea Company is rich, full, satisfying, tasty, and hardy. It infuses to a golden-orange-brown. A follow-up infusion with a longer steep time reveals a heavier cardamom and ginger flavor and subtle rose.
Bombay Breakfast from The Jasmine Pearl Tea Company is a great way to start the day – and if you are pairing it with dessert – a great way to end your day, too!
