This blend reminds me very much of Harney and Sons Paris. There is more fruity flavour in this blend, very much stone fruit. But I have a hard time placing which stone fruits, I get apricot, maybe plum, maybe cherry. I feel like I am getting a bit of a black currant type flavour.

The bergamot is moderately strong. You can definitely tell the base is an Earl Grey.

I got this one in one of Harney’s cute little tagalongs. Perfect to carry the tea around, and it fits lots in it.

I’m drinking this right now while scrolling through my dashboard/newsfeed. I get a titch of black currant as well, so it’s not just you. :) Stone fruits are hard to place as I find they very so much from region to region (I taste dark cherries from the South Island, for example, which taste very different to the dark cherries I would eat when I lived in British Columbia).

Profile

Bio

I am a lifetime tea lover.

I did foray into the world of coffee for a period of time, but I returned to my true love. I still, however, enjoy a good cup of java.

My all time favorite tea is Earl Grey, which I drink every morning, the stronger the bergamot the better. I definitely prefer natural oil of bergamot to artificial flavouring.

I mostly like black and dark oolong teas. My current favs are Fujian blacks, Keemun and Assams, and Wuyi oolongs. I gravitate towards anything with lychee in it. I also drink a lot of herbal blends but am wary of hibiscus. I do not favour mate, or pu’erh tea, although I have found a few blends that I like. (I so badly want to like straight pu’erh tea but it all tastes gross to me. I keep trying though). Rooibos, green and white teas fall somewhere in the middle. I find myself gravitating towards heavily roasted oolongs and teas from Paris/France based companies.

I love iced teas and cold brews.

My current tea goal is to make the perfect cup of chai from scratch – almost there…I think.

I am in love with the whole experience of tea.
