1294 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.
