One of my favorite Friday teas!

Soldier's Blend is great on its own, and an excellent accompaniment to baked goods of all sorts. On those unusual occasions when I want a bit of milk or sweetener in my tea, either or both go quite well, but most of the time I enjoy it straight.

If you're looking for a tea with flavors strong enough to kick you in the teeth, give this one a pass - here they blend together smoothly + wonderfully, a harmony of woodwinds rather than an ardent brass section. Which I like, to be clear! - part of what's so lovely about this blend is how nicely the tea and non-tea flavors mingle and play with each other. I got one batch a couple years back which was too subtle, but every other one has been aces.

Heaven in a Cup

This tea is heaven in a cup. It reminds me very much of the Knuckesandwhich tea without the chili. Its warm and comforting and I'm about to go brew these leaves again because I am not ready to say goodbye. I prepared it with just splenda for this first go round so it is silky, slightly chocolatey, and sweet. I will definitely buy this again.
