drank Paris by Harney & Sons
50 tasting notes

I got this in a three-piece set as a graduation present, and this rapidly became my favorite of the three. And of course, now that I’ve brewed the very last tea bag, it was the one I had finished first.

I hadn’t really thought too critically about this tea up until now other than “YUM!” But now that I’m on my final bag (sniff sniff), it’s time to wrap things up with a real tasting. I raised an eyebrow reading the other reviews. “Strawberry jam? What the? I never noticed any-(takes a sip)-Oh, there it is!”

Lucky, the flavor notes of strawberries, vanilla, bergamot, and black tea marry into something excellent. I enjoy an earl grey now and then, but sometimes it can be just a little… “earl-grey-y.” This tea does not have that problem. It is earl grey’s much tastier cousin who studied abroad in Paris and came back delicious.

It’s been great, Paris. I’m going to keep your tin around to remind me of you. Maybe keep some pebbles or art supplies in it. But most likely I’ll be seeing you again real soon.

I’m a tea omnivore if there ever was one. I’ll wax poetic about the finest sencha loose leaf but have no problem slurping up a few bags of Celestial Seasonings in between them. Everyone deserves quality from time to time, but every well-traveled road has a bit of dust (and fannings) along the way. :)
