A mild English, perfect for your morning cup of tea (or coffee in our case). This G.L. Pease pipe tobacco has a bit of bright citrus and fruit wandering in to most puffs if you take enough time with it. Those who like the flavors of Latakia and Perique, but who aren’t so fond of the one-two-punch-you-in-the-face of some of the stronger G.L. Pease blends will be able to appreciate his genius with this, milder fair.

Love this tobacco it's perfect in the morning or anytime. Smokes great straight from the tin. GLP will probably be my go-to brand from now on. Gaslight will be my next one to try.
I have to say there is nothing inherently wrong with this tobacco blend. This one was not as special to me as some of the others in this line like Quiet Nights, Meridian, and Gaslight. These are all English blends, but Chelsea morning is by far the lightest and nuanced in flavor. The others were very forward with their ingredients. While I smoked this it was very mild and one noted. However, I do know some prefer a uniform blend and every palate is different. Also, I don't know what age does to this blend.
For many years I was an exclusive smoker of mild aromatics (many of the non-aromatic, English-type blends were just too strong for me and tasted too much like a campfire), then I discovered the G. L. Pease line. Granted, some of the Peases are still too stout for me, but they ALL taste good. But "Chelsea Morning" is simply DELICIOUS! This blend is reasonably mild and there is no "room note"... there's a symphony! This blend is simply delicious!
Greg, you're the man!
