backlogging from last night.

My Harney order arrived yesterday:) I didn’t get home until after 9 pm and really wanted to try one of my new teas, so this was the winner. I wanted to hit the hay after enjoying my cup of tea.

The aroma from this tea smelled like sweet cookies baking, lots of caramel goodness with wafts of rich vanilla. The liquor steeped up as dark as a caffeinated black tea, a nice amber. The taste was impressive. Sweet, but not overly fake and artificial, just a nice vanilla bean and caramel with a smooth and malty black tea taste. Very impressed by my first black tea from Harney. I am glad this tea lives up to what everyone has said about it! I found a new night time favorite.

I can’t believe I haven’t tried this tea yet. I wonder if I have received it in a swap. Ignoring the fact that it’s slightly ridiculous that I can’t remember if I have or not, I’m kind of hoping that I’m just that forgetful and I have it because your description is really enticing!

If you find that you haven’t any in your stash, let me know and I would be more than happy to send you a bag. I have a feeling this will be a nighttime favorite and will be ordering a larger quantity next time. Only downfall is it isn’t available looseleaf…yet.

Meghann – I bought a pound of this looseleaf! I think it only comes in a pound or something big looseleaf, but not a 4 oz tin loose.

Jaime

Yes, I have got to try this tea. Have seen nothing but rave reviews.

Kristin

I have some of this on the way right now. I can’t wait to try it!

After trying it one time, my hubby said, “Order the one pound bag!” And you are right, that is the only way to buy it loose leaf.

Kristen

I def want to order this with my next harney order!

Meghann M

I didn’t think I would need to place another order with them so soon, but I must not let myself run out of this, and I think I need to get a tin of the Tower of London as well. Harney does teas well.

Live in the cornfields of IL, but not too far from the city. Expecting a baby any day now (due Oct 24 2011). Sticking to mainly herbal and low caffeine teas for now. Trying to encourage my husbands tea drinking, but he adds so much sweetner he may as well just drink diet pop. I love trying new teas, and will try any tea once.
