1016 Tasting Notes


Got a sample of this in the mail today, and rather than add it to my cupboard, I’ve decided it will be my noncaf tea of the evening.
It actually smells good, like gooey caramels. And the smell of the steeped up tea is just the same.
It sips a little flatter than that, unfortunatly, but it smells lovely. All in all, a perfectly nice red tea.

What a gorgeous day it is today, crisp and bright. Perfection. Enjoying a cup of this before I go into work this afternoon. Bleh. I’d rather spend all day on my back porch, drinking tea and reading. At least its my short day at work!

drank Valentine's Blend by Harney & Sons

Eh, still not overly impressed with this.
What I am impressed with is the actual tagalong. Its a good little design, and I will use it on future trips for tea transportation, of sachets, anyway.

Its October! Pumpkin month. So to start it off, I am giving this blend a try.
Hmm, first thought is that it seems very simalar to Chocolate Pumpkin Pie, in which I did not detect any chocolate.
This is a nice pumpkin spice blend, it does have a pie like warmth to it. The actual squash note isnt amazingly strong, but its not too spicy. I guess what I’m trying to say is that I like this. I will have fun drinking this during the next couple of months.

This will absolutly be a restock when it rolls around again. Bye for now, Winter Solstice.

drank Paris by Harney & Sons
1016 tasting notes

Now we have arrived at a mild tea crisis. I am out of Paris. I love Paris, its a stand by tea, and I can get it easily in the sachets at any time. But I should be trying to minimize my cupboard, and I am indeed trying to do that.
So the question is this- to restock immediately, knowing that I will restock anyway, or keep the total low? I have a great many other good teas to sip on, in the absence of Paris.
Hmm. Dilemma.

drank Valentine's Blend by Harney & Sons

So last time I got a Harney order, I added a tagalong of this blend.
I’m begining to think that a strawberries and chocolate blend is not really for me. I’ve got a couple of them now, and I’ll drink them, but I wont be getting them again, I think.
This is, like every H&S blend, smooth. And its got an underlying creaminess that is very pleasant. The strawberry isnt very fruity, if that makes any sense. It makes the chocolate a little more watery (and yes, I know I just said creamy. I am a mass of contradictions today) I’ll consume my tagalong without too many problems.

I noticed this last time, but now I’m sure. This upsets my stomach! I dont know why it would do that, but a cup of this and I feel a little… acidic maybe? Well, thats it for this tea! No more sick making tea, even if its otherwise unoffensive. Sipdown!

drank Florence by Harney & Sons
1016 tasting notes

I have had the ends of this sample in my cupboard for ages, and today is the day to sip it down!
This will be a somewhat unpopular opinion, but I dont really care for this. Dont get me wrong, its a good blend. I havnt found an H&S blend that I havnt found to be a good, well balanced and generally good, so this all comes down to a matter of taste, I suppose. Florence is just not for me. And now the sample is gone! Another tea out of my cupboard.

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.
