My coworker that recently ordered from Harney & Sons got a few of these silken sachets as a thank you in her order. She passed one on to me. I thought tonight was the perfect night to try it, being Home Alone. Alas, I am a Magic: The Gathering widow this evening :)

I made it with a little honey, sachet left in the cup. Nice! Sweet and herbaceous. Not lemony but…lemonminty? Fresh and good tasting. Nothing I would run out and order (I like my healing herbals from Mountain Rose Herbs when I’m looking for this sort of tea) but if it arrived with an order again I’d be pleased!

Bio

I love to cook, bake, read, paint, knit, do needlework, and garden. I need my coffee, but I LOVE my tea. I work at an Art School, and attend a large public university doing post-bac work (my BA is in English). I’m interested in the liminal spaces between art and craft, the academic and the practical, the individual and community, and the old and the new. I’m currently exploring these ideas through the disciplines of education, literature, history, and psychology.

I enjoy writing tasting notes, but have decided not to numerically rate teas as of 9/14/10. For an explanation, see my looooong tasting note about Mountain Malt from the Simple Leaf.

My favorites:
Chinese black teas
A good “milk and sugar” English style black
Earl Grey (classic, and in all variations!)
Vanilla teas (classic, and in all variations!)
Jasmine, Rose, Violet and other froofy, flowery teas!
An Occasional Oolong
Flavored Rooibos
Herbal Tisanes
