Beekman 1802 Rise and Shine Morning Blend

In the morning, we look for a brisk, strong, flavorful tea to get our selves on track for the day. Recently a friend who is very much into all things trendy shared Beekman 1802 Rise and Shine Morning Blend tea. This is a blend which actual ingredients we haven't been able to track down. However, it's very mild so we suspect it is largely orange pekoe with maybe some green tea. While we love fair trade and organic teas here in the parlor, we also prize taste, and for us, this is just too mild and meek a tea. However, this may be a suitable tea for a new tea drinker or a youngster. 

We served it with homemade blueberry pancakes topped with fresh blueberries and turkey bacon.
