1233 Tasting Notes
This is a sample I got in the most recent Harneys order, which has been languishing in my sample bowl. Well, it is a day for bravery and tea! So into the cup it goes.
Its almost silly, seeing the pearls in a sachet, but I must say they brewed up quite well. This is a mildly perfumy tea, and actually very nice. I am impressed. Its so gentle, its almost a floating tea, if you take my meaning. I feel lighter than air drinking it. A delicate little cup.
A leftover slice of birthday cake is a perfect accompanyment to this tea. It was actually a bit of a challenge, finding one that would compliment the vanilla pound cake (as I’d already had a vanilla tea this morning, and wanted a change), so I decided to go for a full on sugar fest, with this as the paring.
Yum. I’ll eat/drink something savory later, to balance this all out. But for now, yum.
A great many thanks to JustJames for this tea, which is the best possible tea to start off my day.
Its my birthday! So a birthday cake tea is the best way to start off my next year of life.
This is like a cream-puff, light and fluffy, though the mint was a bit of a surprise. Still, very tasty, and thematically appropriate!
The very first time I tried this, it was strawberry delicious, but I havent been able to reproduce that first cup. Hmm.
Its not bad, but not quite what I remember.
I ordered myself some Lupicia tea, including Yume, which is one I love, with a simalar flavor profile. I’ll be trying Carol and Yume back to back sometime soon.
Why is waking up so hard? My bed is an oasis of softness and warmth, and its very hard to remove myself from its embrace.
Tea is often the only motivator to get out of bed.
I’ve noticed that I reach for this faster than just about everything on a Thursday morning, my fastest and earliest day of the week. Probably because its bagged, so brewes up with minimal supervision, and sips very nicely.
