drank Paris by Harney & Sons
1319 tasting notes

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.

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!

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.

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 :

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.

First cup of the day.
I can never quite make up my mind on this one. Sometimes it brews up to something exceedingly pleasant, with a fruit pastry quality, and sometimes it seems flat.
Today, I’m pleased to say, it was pleasant! A good start to the day.

I got to sleep in a bit today, which was glorious, and I had a leisurely breakfast, a pot of tea and raspberries with a bit of vanilla infused sugar dusted over top.
Ha. Delicious and relaxing.
With my air conditioner fixed I am in the seventh heaven, and happier than a clam. Bring on the tea!

My air conditioner is fixed! Oh thank goodness, there was a while there I was convinced death was upon me.
So, tea!
Today this was distinctly like a floral earl grey. Not bad, but it didn’t leave much on an impression on me. Ah well.

Maddy Barone

Holy crap I think I would literally DIE without A/C. Glad yours is up and running again.

Fjellrev

Yay, glad it’s fixed now!

Oh blargh. Its 105 today and last night the control panel for my air conditioning unit broke. This is a tragedy of almost Greek proportions.
It also means I slept terribly and spent the morning roaming around my house making little keening noises, while trying to drink a mug of tea.
It was almost unbearable, and the thought of a cup of tea this evening is impossible.
I hate summer. I hate it so much. I am having my revenge by drinking “winter” teas, trying to force some sort of cosmic being to change the season for me. Blargh!
I’ve gotta fix the AC, so I can properly enjoy tea. I want to enjoy the tasty layers of fruit and pastry! I wanna have a pot of tea without sweating! Aaaah!

Nichole

That is a tragedy of almost Greek proportions. There is nothing worse than drinking a hot pot of tea while you are sweating. This summer I thought it would be fun to drink a pot of tea while I watched the boys play outside. Such a bad idea. I ended up being a bigger sweaty mess than they were.

I confess that when we had a particularly hot and humid summer a few years ago, I turned the a/c as cold as I dared financially, took a cold shower, and made a pot of tea. We have been in the 90’s but today we have a one day respite with a high in the 80’s because it is overcast.

TeaBrat

I have no A/C/ either. When it gets hot I have a fan. I don’t recall it getting above 95 in San Francisco since I’ve been here though.

Rosehips

Ah, theres the rub! I’m in Central California, where its about 102 today. Bleh.

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.
