drank Paris by Harney & Sons
1112 tasting notes

This one courtesy of the amazing takgoti!!

I am all mixed up today. I ate my packed lunch for breakfast, so I figured an afternoon tea is now fair game :)

The dry leaves smell fantastic!!!!

sip sip – oh WOW! Yup, this is pretty much heaven in a cup. It really does taste like Love!!! This is what the Mariage Freres Fall in Love should have tasted like if it were stronger (and in a black tea base). Baked custard and berries. I’m not getting any of the citrus. Maaaaaaybe a slight haze of it after the sip. This tea is exquisite!!! It has the Harney signature of being PERFECTLY blended. This is a must for my next Harney order (but takgoti was so kind to include enough for at least 4 more cups of Love!!!).

I received one(!) sample bag of this for Christmas, and it was delicious. The funny part is, it really tasted like caramel and fruit to me, but online they only talk about the fruit and bergamot. I thought maybe I was going crazy, but it looks like it’s just the sachet description that’s different: “currant, caramel, and citrus.”

Whee! After looking through your tasting notes, I had a hunch this one would go over well with you! Speaking of which, I’m due for a Paris revisit. Maybe tomorrow…

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
