drank Paris by Harney & Sons
102 tasting notes

Sometimes in the morning I want more than just a straight cup of black tea — I want something with some extra flavor. This tea is perfect for those occasions. I have it in the pouches, so it’s great for travel or to take with me to the office. I’m fairly fussy about flavored blacks — I can’t stand anything that has an artificial taste or is overly fruity. This tea is perfect in that the flavors enhance the black tea; they don’t overpower or overshadow it. Also, the bergamot note is not overdone.

I especially like to make this one into a tea latte (in a 16 oz mug, using two teabags, brew 8 oz. of tea, then fill the rest with steamed/foamed milk). This goes particularly well with a waffle and some preserves. Yum!

Bio

I like strong, robust flavors. My current favorites include strong black teas (Keemuns, Yunnan teas and Assams, for example), flavored blacks such as Harney’s Paris, oolongs of any kind, and gyokuros. I like Rooibos and honeybush teas as well, and other herbal blends to help me relax in the evening.

I am willing to try just about anything, but I am not particularly fond of jasmine tea, very fruity or heavily flavored blends, anything with pineapple; and I know this is practically heresy, but I don’t like Darjeelings.
