Drink Me: Capital Teas, Chesapeake Sunrise

When I purchase teas from a tea shop, online or otherwise, I like trying the “local” blend. In this case it was Capital Teas Chesapeake Sunrise blend.

From the website, the blend contains: green Tea, black Tea, orange peel, jackfruit, and almond.

It is available a variety of sizes: 2oz for $7.00, 4oz for $14.00, 8oz for $26.60, 1lb for $50.40, and 2lbs for $95.20.


When I first opened the package I could smell the almond and something fruity and rich. As it brewed I could smell more of the delicate green tea.  The result was a light tea with hints of floral notes and almond.  This would be a nice dessert tea, or a sweet morning start.
