My Morning Blend by The NecessiTEAs is a strong and robust blend of black tea and cocoa beans.
It is very bold and slightly bitter, so I added agave to tone it down a bit. That helped, but the flavors of the black tea and cocoa beans are still overpowering the agave. It smells strongly of black tea with a tiny hint of chocolate.
The cocoa definitely comes out more once it’s steeped, but the main flavor is bold black tea. Although this is not quite my “cup of tea”, I think it would be a great, tasty, energizing blend for someone who is looking to switch from coffee to tea.
I used to drink coffee, but that was over two years ago so I am not really used to the bitter and bold qualities of coffee. I do, however, remember those qualities and I think that this tea possesses them more so than other teas.
Therefore, I can definitely see someone who predominantly drinks coffee really enjoying this blend especially in the morning!
Here’s the scoop!
