Looking for a good morning tea

by Kellyring » Mar 17th, '10, 09:23

I like caffeine. I know it is not that great for you but I gave coffee up. Prefer tea t coffee any day but I still want my morning kick. Have been wanting to try Sip Smart! but every time I go to order it, it is out of stock. Also, the creator is no longer in the directory when I do a search. Anyways, looking for suggestions on a sweet but not "fru-fru" like morning tea. Something that is not bitter but not chocolately if you know what I mean. Just tea... preferably green. New to all this - prior to this bought my tea at Walmart! ha! Thanks everyone!!

I have two to suggest - of the signature blends....

A.M. Wake Up by Woodie Barnes
http://www.adagio.com/signature_blend/blend.html?blend=1308&sid=4f70f54a8ce9d97d67e1e0191c4ccf30&scrollTop=0

and

Silk Road by Tanya Laird (me)
http://www.adagio.com/signature_blend/blend.html?blend=4758&sid=4f70f54a8ce9d97d67e1e0191c4ccf30&scrollTop=0

Look Woodie - I put you first!! :wink: They may LOOK like the same blend but they are actually different. Woodie's is smokier tasting, while mine is a lighter and heavier on the malty flavors. So, take your pick - either one will DEFINATELY wake you up in the morning :shock:

Cheers!

I have tried Silk Road by Tanya Laird and it's really nice! Have not tried A.M. Wake Up but it was among best selling teas for quite some time.
Quite a few people have mentioned that they like Aquarius (The Zodiac Series) as their morning tea. Depends on a personal preference I suppose.
One of my favorites: Red Dragon http://www.adagio.com/signature_blend/b ... cb8d6dca37
(But unfortunately it's not available right now)

Boy, did you ever come to the right place to find a coffee substitute -- there are so many *fabulous* blends!

Here are my two cents (and by cents, I seem to mean blend suggestions:)
It's not green, but Southworth is a fabulous morning tea -- take a peek at the review, Zack even suggests is as a coffee substitute :> The rooibos caramel helps soften the oomph of the other two ceylons, but it's still pretty robust. Not bitter, but a strong, interestingly sweet tea.

As far as green goes, there's also The Big Lebowski -- it's Artichoke Green, Citron Green and Lemongrass, and it's very clean tasting.

Enjoy!

I forgot to list a green.....I actually do have a kick-in-your-pants green. It was a popular blend of mine called The 9th Doctor, but it has a new name and label now....Riot Proof (name says it all really....) :shock:

You have so many wonderful choices but one ever said the decision would be easy. My suggestion is Smooth Sophistication. http://www.adagio.com/signature_blend/b ... 81e6400cd6 It is currently out of stock but should be back in soon. It is very unique, rich, a little creamy, and a bit "high brow" :lol: I enjoy it.

Good luck on your search
Rachel :D
