Pease's Chelsea Morning is comprised of 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.
GLP is a gentleman and a scholar, and one can tell this through his magisterial blends. Chelsea Morning is no exception. It smokes easy out of the tin, smells a sweet mixture of sour and smoky in the tin. Room note is mild, but being a morning blend ...

I have read some reviewers who say the tins are inconsistent, I have not run across this problem but will report back later. Ordering EMP now to compare the two and will report back as well. In the meantime, light up my friends. Read Less
Once I’m awake enough in the morning I grab an ancient Dunhill Redbark and fill it with Chelsea Morning. I’ve done that for years.

At first, I was not sure how I felt about this blend, but after smoking through 2oz of the stuff, I think this might be (one of) the ideal morning bowl blends for many people.

I tried Dunhill Early Morning Pipe and was left uninspired by it. I tried Chelsea Morning to try and fill that 'first smoke of the day' gap and this hits the mark. Having said that, this blend would suit as an all day blend. Lots going on in the blen... Read Mored. Very enjoyable. Read Less
Part of my daily rotation, I usually smoke this in the morning, but it could easily be an all day smoke. The bright and red Virginias provide just enough sweetness and citrus tang that is balanced nicely with the Oriental/Turkish, which plays a suppo... Read Morerting role with woodsy and savory undertones. The perique also plays a supporting role with hints of raisin. This hint of raisin is no doubt brought out by the sweeter notes of the Virginias and Oriental. Not sure if it is just me, but this is very similar to Seattle Pipe Club's Mississippi River blends. If you like those, you will undoubtedly like this GLP offering. It is not overly moist, but I tend to let it dry for at least a month or so after opening. Burns to a nice grey ash. Puff this one slowly and it will pay dividends with its complex balance of flavors. As one reviewer noted, I have noticed some inconsistency between tins, but that does not bother me, and it is a bit expected given the (no doubt) complex blending process. I highly recommend this blend - one of my favorites in the rotation. Read Less
Robust and slightly sweet. A fantastic morning blend in my regular rotation. I smoked this blend one morning while driving to work, after I arrived a co-worker said "i like that cologne your wearing.

I marvel at the thought process that achieved this recipe. When I opened the tin it didn't feel or look like English tobacco that I am accustom to, more of a blondish red color, and thick ribbons.

One of my top favorites. I would imagine that trying to balance out four different kinds of leaf must be difficult, and it feels like Pease got this exactly right. Almost every few puffs the flavor changes back and forth, keeping it incredibly inte... Read Moreresting. I also find it a little less moist (or swampy??) than any other English I've had. It just seems less thick and oily, and more earthly and complex. I normally puff harder on English/Balkans than I do VAs, but this one I have to sip because it's so complex, and the Perique adds even more to that. This is fine, because the flavor is huge. Not too much of a certain leaf and not too little of it either. Right when I think there could be more Oriental, I begin tasting it again. I just had in on a slightly rainy, cooler summer day commuting into work. Lovely. Great stuff. One word description: Complex. This is also the best blend I've been able to pair with a cup of coffee. It's almost like it was designed with that in mind. Read Less
