G. L. Pease Chelsea Morning

(3.44)
Sweet red and bright Virginias, fragrant Orientals, a bit of rich Cyprus latakia, and just a pinch of perique. The leaf is blended in layers, briefly pressed, then sliced and tumbled into ribbons. Lively and engaging, with a subtle fruitiness, and an elegant, creamy texture, it's a great bowl to accompany the morning cup.
Notes: Chelsea Morning was introduced in October, 2009.

My morning pipes are smoked outside, and we have the first touches of frost on the ground, so all the Peasian bells and whistles are lost on me. This blend is like a BMW's wiring harness - too complicated by half for what it's trying to do.
Age When Smoked: 9 months

Sorry, old chaps, this one fell flat, in my book. Lacked the personality I require in an English/Balkan that I need to taste the tartness.

I did not like this at all. The cut was interesting.... I could rub it out a bit if I felt like it, it burnt a bit better that way. The smell was pretty bad, the taste was just flat and 'cardboardy'. I tried many different pipes, but I just didn't get it. I did like the nicotine level, it seemed just right. The room note was a bit ordinary, bordering on offensive.

If this was the only tobacco left on earth, I could smoke it, but I certainly will not be buying more.

I don't know what I'm doing wrong or what I'm missing out on here. I've enjoyed some really good Pease blends, but this.....? It seems nothing like the description, despite the pipe I use. I simply cannot mesh with this blend. Pungent and heavy with the smell of damp hay and dried grass. Lights up bitter and strong, and keeps going in that direction for the short span I can endure it. Sharp, harsh, and hot on the tongue, I found greater pleasure discarding the remnants of the tin, a bitter and disagreeable weed.

I have smoke my 2oz tin of this and I am not liking it as well as all of those that have given it 4 stars. I didn't get any of the creamy, sweet, or other things mentioned in other reviews or description. For me this blend is dark, bitter, and heavy in the mouth and actually makes me sick to my stomach.

I agree with Marshall Law:

This is a poor blend of cheap tobacco. Better look into your blender and supplier, Pease, I suggest you are getting outbid at the tobacco auctions.



Glad I tried a Green Little Peas blend, but I will stick with Gawith, at least they know how to blend quality tobacco, which is why it is hard to get, and has been around for a few hundred years.

Tin note is earthy mushrooms in a camp fire with a bitter tinge. A difficult light even when dried for an hour prior to packing. Once it does catch you find nothing of the sweet, fruity, or creamy from the description--instead, a harsh smoke that feels a bit out of balance. Nothing remarkable or memorable about the experience The hype on this one is questionable though I recognize this is all just personal taste. For my part, I recommend passing on this blend.
