I received this as a sample from my last order and decided to try it today.
I think I brew tea in a weird way but it always works for me. I opened the sachet so I could brew this as a loose tea and put it in my tea ball and let it boil in the kettle for about 4 minutes because I tend to enjoy stronger more flavorful teas.
I drank it while it was very hot and noticed how sweet it was and I thought it was just because it was my first sip. I continued to drink the rest of the cup and it tasted just the same.
A warm sweet buttery cinnamon flavor, extremely smooth. I finished my first cup and brewed a second cup with a little less water for about 5:30, didn’t have as much flavor but still great.

I really enjoyed this tea, and I don’t usually like black teas, I’m more of a green tea person but this was exceptional, I may order a 4 oz container in the future!

I’ve had this tea a few times before and just received a sample of it with my latest Harney order.
One of my favorite green teas, it has a very buttery taste and still holds the taste of green tea.
The main thing to note about this tea is that you have to be careful about the time and temperature that you steep it at. Many times I’ve had this tea steeped too long or too hot and it’s tasted very bitter. Steep for no more than 2 minutes and then check the taste and and steep longer if necessary. I brewed mine with instanthot water so i let it cool down a bit first.
