This is one of the samples that came with my recent Harney’s order. I usually don’t reach for breakfast versions because I prefer a little more flavor, or just a really strong cup of PG Tipps or Red Rose with lots of milk and sugar. This was surprisingly good, though. It is very smooth, and is actually just as drinkable without any milk or sugar added, which I can’t say about a lot of other teas. I don’t think I would purchase any of this with all of the other wonderful flavors that Harney’s has, but I wouldn’t turn down a cup either!

-Silken pyramid-shaped teabag with a tag.
-Teabag smells sweetly malty. Tea liquor aroma is sweet and toasty.
-Tea liquor is a thick dark brown color.
-Heavy and malty flavor and finish. Lightly sweet aftertaste.
-Milk and sweetener optional.
-Good tea. A balanced and smooth cup that is good on its own or with milk and sweetener.

Yay! you’re writing reviews again. I hope you write tasting notes for your Harneys haul, because I love reading reviews by other milk and sugar users! LOL

Haha, well I’m trying to write reviews again. Nursing school is consuming my life. But it’s good to take a break every once in awhile and just think about something pleasant, like tea! I actually only ordered 2 teas from Harneys – Boston for me (it’s awesome with milk and sugar, you should try it if you haven’t!) and Chocolate Mint for my fiancee. I’m waiting until Black Friday sales to order some new teas to write about! :)

I’ve heard great things about Boston, and the fact that it’s great with milk and sugar only confirms it for me! did you get it loose? or the sachets? I know how much school can consume your life, but I’m glad you’re finding even a bit of time to yourself.

I do get the Boston loose, and it’s wonderful! Good luck on your test coming up, you’re going to do great!

Just a Southern girl who loves sunshine, little dogs and all things tea!

I love animals and animal rescue. We have a rescued Chihuahua, Greyhound, Siamese and 2 Tabbies. We also foster kittens for the local humane society.

My favorite teas are sweet and malty black teas but I try to branch out and taste them all. :)
