I am so close to a sipdown, I can taste victory!
But in the meantime I will taste this tea, which is pleasant, but nothing special, and will not be a repeat visitor.

drank Apple Cinnamon by Harney & Sons
1323 tasting notes

Ordered this as a sample, as its nearly fall, and a little apple cinnamon tea could help make it colder, yes?
Yes? No? Drat.
It smells lovely, a perfect balance between cider and tea, but it brewed up much milder than its scent.
I wish it was more robust. It was pleasant enough, but not particularly flavorful.
In other news, my interview went well! She seemed to like me. There are more interviews to go, so we shall see!

Nichole

Woohoo! That’s good news!

drank Paris by Harney & Sons

Due to an very odd and somewhat distressing set of events last night, I did not sleep well at all.
This is a problem, as I have a job interview ish thing today- lunch with a lady who needs a personal assistant. So I want to make a good impression and not be a tired mess. Ugh.
Two things will help! Concealer (the wonder makeup), and tea.
Forget my sipdown attempts today- its all about the classic, beloved teas. May this delicious fruity cup lead me through the day triumphantly.

Good luck! :)

Best of luck and I hope your sleep deprivation won’t affect you too much!

Nichole

I’m sure you will impress and be fantastic! Good luck!

drank Apricot by Harney & Sons

Three cheers for the sample pouches from Harney and Sons! I love that I can cheaply add a few very good sized samples of a tea I haven’t tried yet, and I’m mad for the sensible packaging. A resealable sample pouch? Count me in. Especially when the samples are generous enough for a few cups.
I’ve heard good things about this one, so was very eager to get my hands on it.
I’m enjoying this. Its a subtle fruity flavor, with a lovely aroma. I imagine this would be spectacular on a cool spring morning.
Its enjoyable now, too. I’m glad I have more to play around with.

I finally bought this one about a month ago. I love it!

After months of no tea buying, I finally snapped and ordered a ton of teas. Heh, eeek!
But I am optimistic, and wanted to get some of the autumnal flavors in, getting an early start on that, so I grabbed up some beloved fall flavors, and also a few classics.
And, in my cupboard, Paris is a classic. Its fruity, without being a fruit salad, and a seasonless flavor.
I am very happy to have it back in the cupboard! And now, on to yoga.

So tempted to do the same. But I SWORE I would wait until October to do my fall/winter ordering.

Rosehips

You are strong! I gave in to temptation almost at once. Ah well….

gmathis

Must…stay…strong…waiting…until…I…get…the…scraps…drunk….up….!

Paris is very good. Have you ever tried Harney’s Tower of London? Very similar except the vanilla is replaced by honey. Very yummy too.

Rosehips

I love Tower of London! I wish they sold it in smaller sizes in the leaf, though.

ashmanra

Rosehips – they used to sell most of their teas however you want if you call the store! I think you can call Soho or Millerton. I used to do it now and then.

drank Boston Blend by Harney & Sons

This tea was, perhaps, a mistake this morning. Not because its bad! It reamins delicious! But because I have an upset stomach, and maybe a black tea was too much this morning?
Ughh. At least its Friday?

Do you ever get to that point when you’re just so excited about almost being through a tin of tea that you don’t know if you enjoy it anymore.
I’ve reached that with this tea. I still retain a generally favorable opinion, but not overwhelmingly good.
And I’m so close to a sipdown! Eeee!

Nichole

I was just telling my fiance this the other day. Tea was ok but I was more excited to throw away the packaging.

Marzipan

I’m sort of that way about all of my Harney teas at this point.

I am so ready for fall. And the fall collections are starting to come out! I’m excited.
The weather is refusing to cooperate, of course, but still. I am dreaming about my sweaters, and this, one of my favorite autumnal teas, helps with the fantasy.
Its been a serious day at work as well, so a beloved tea was a great tea to start off with.

Teatotaler

Another fall fanatic! Hoorah! Not long now. Driving home from work today here in dear Old Virginia, I actually spotted a few Sugar Maples (My favorite tree) with tiny bits of red and orange foliage. I well understand the sweet anticipation of autumn! :) I must give Boston Blend a try this fall season.

Where I live, the temperature next week is supposed to go above the 90s. Yeah, it could be worse (cough California cough) but it’s the first week of September :

gmathis

We’re just north of the Ozarks…I just want to sit at the edge of a lake and watch the leaves change on the hills. For two months. And not come back. (Until winter, in which case, I need my blankie and rocking chair.)

Is it cold yet? Weather report says 95, so no. Grrr.
This weekend I went with some friends to see HMS Pinafore, which I’d never seen before, and is deeply silly, and Mr. Holmes, which was a really good movie.
Makes Monday all the harder, after such a fun weekend. Boo, Monday!
But so far its been pretty productive, and I always enjoy the first pot of tea of the week.
I’m really going to miss this blend when its gone, as, alas, it is no more. Its a wonderful winter tea. Perhaps I should pause in drinking it until its cold again?

I am working my way through my stash of this, and am always hopeful that its going to be better than it is.
My hopes are now, as I move to the bottom of the tin, that I’ll get more tea, and a bit less flotsam and jetsam. I love additions to tea, and like floral, but this is just too much. Too many addtions! And they don’t seem to be helping. Frustrating.

I love tea! I confess that I was a hot chocolate lover for most of my life, but recently a switch has gone off in my brain, and suggested that I might just love tea. And I do!
I’m a bit of a novice, but an enthusiastic one, and am happily sipping new varieties all the time.
I love vanilla, fruity, and caramel flavors, and cant wait to try more.
