drank Apricot by Harney & Sons
65 tasting notes

Another free sample that came with my recent H&S order, and a good one to compare back to back with their Apple Cinnamon ..

Both of these teas make a lovely fragrant & fruity Autumn cuppa, but I’m not sure I’d need to have both on hand .. Like the Apple this has a sweet aroma and obvious flavouring, yet steeped for a longer period of time the Tea makes itself well known too .. Without becoming bitter or too astringent ..

Purely as a matter of personal preference I’m going to stick with the Apple, but if Apricot is your thing then I definitely suggest you give this a try!

I’ll update after drinking the glass I have chilling ..

Bio

For many years I only drank coffee, and the occasional herbal tisane .. But eventually I got sick of people complaining that I had no ‘real tea’ in the house so I bought a box of cheap tea bags and remembered WHY I didn’t drink the stuff!

And so life went on until the day an English friend invited me to visit her home .. She made us a pot of (loose leaf) Earl Grey to enjoy in the garden – and finally I’d found a Tea that I truly wanted to drink!

Now-a-days my favourite alternates between home-made Masala Chai, Lady Grey with a few extra drops of Sweet Orange Essential Oil, Dessert Flavoured Blacks, and my latest interest is Dragon Peal Jasmine ..

any less = I wouldn’t drink it again
70 – 80 = Nice, but there’s better
80 – 90 = Mmm, Yummy Stuff ..
90 – 100 = Unique, Stand-Outs, & Can Not Be Withouts!
