    A holiday in every cup
    February 20, 2012
    Christmas Morning is a great tea. It was probably the first Stash I ever tried. Each time I drink it, I feel like it's Christmas. You know, those old-fashioned Christmases with gingerbread cookies in the oven and cinnamony apple cider simmering on the stove. Crisp, clean snow on the ground outside and the twinkling, shiny pine tree inside. Orange spice balls on the table -- ever made those, with cloves? The flavor is multi-layered, and hard to describe ... kind of fruity and spicy and smoky and, well, happy. I usually drink it black, but I've heard it's good with milk, too. I give it four and a half stars -- and that's only because I've recently found a few I like a bit more.

    Refreshing and healthy
    February 20, 2012
    This peppermint tea is probably my favorite herbal tea. I love the fact that it's just peppermint -- too many mint teas have spearmint, which is a flavor I don't particularly like in my tea. This tea is nice and pepperminty, a clean and refreshing kind of flavor. But it's not overwhelming, like sucking half a dozen peppermint candies. I don't know why, but it makes me feel mellow. It's also really good if you've got an upset stomach of any kind. I'm a caffeine addict, and for me to love an herbal must mean it's good!

    This tea is one of my favorites. I'm been to Ireland quite a few times now, and this is what I remember being served over there. It brews nice and dark, especially for people like me who need their morning caffeine! This isn't a tea for beginners, though. The flavor is strong and so is the aroma. And watch the staining effects -- probably as bad as coffee for your teeth! I drink it "black" (no milk) with just a little sugar and it makes me feel like I'm back in Ireland having my breakfast -- without the "black pudding."

    The perfect combination
    February 20, 2012
    This stuff is awesome. For a long time, I drank Irish breakfast tea in the mornings for my dose of caffeine. Still do, sometimes. But my new favorite is this Fusion Breakfast Green and Black Tea. The black tea mellows the sometimes strong flavor of the green, which I don't usually like straight, and the green softens the hard kick of straight black. It's the best of both worlds -- black tea nutrients and green tea nutrients. I drink it "black" (no milk) with a little bit of sugar. Delish.
