New Teas #1: Coffee Break

I'm very excited about my new teas. I have about 6 or 7 of them, and I'll feature each of them in my next few blog posts. Today I'll be featuring:

Coffee Break - a tea for those breaking from coffee

I can't tell you how often people come into the shop telling me that they're looking to get off coffee. They're looking for a coffee replacement that offers a rich morning brew with a good kick of caffeine. I designed this tea with those customers in mind and in the process I created my own new go-to morning drink. I love this blend! Coffee break is a black tea and mate blend that offers a full bodied but incredibly smooth brew with a roasted aroma sure to satisfy just about anyone's coffee craving.

In the process of designing the blend, I drank a lot of it. A LOT OF IT! And I can attest to the energizing qualities of Coffee Break. It's been many years since I've been really cranked up on caffeine, but I was again while I worked on this tea. In the past, when I used to drink a lot of coffee, I would get energized, but jittery, nervous and irritable. With Coffee Break, I was enlivened, energized, productive, and happy. Then the effect slowly faded and I was able to sleep at night. It was the perfect buzz! My small circle of test subjects were surprised at how it truly works as a coffee alternative (even though it doesn't really taste like coffee - it's not pretending to be).

It's brand new in the shop and will be available on the website in the next week or so.

Agreed! Michelle was kind enough to give me a sample when I came in for advice on - you guessed it - weaning off of coffee! I had it on Saturday morning; I did a short aerobic workout, then brewed a cup of this fabulous elixer. I felt SO energized, and not the least bit jittery.

I can't wait to buy another tin of this and have some more! Two cups of this was a hundred times better than twice as much coffee.
