Yesterday I got an order from the Harney & Son’s Millerton Shop….. I added a few ounces (they have a 2 ounce minimum) of this on to my order and I am not disappointed. I have been on the search for a good blueberry tea that is readily available, but I am thinking this tea works well for my berry flavored tea. The tea base is rich (which is usually what dissappoints me in most flavored teas) and complements this black currant flavoring well. I have no idea what real black currants taste like, so I can’t say if it tastes like it should. I just know really I like it!
Packaging from the shop is in foil lined zip bags that have a brown kraft paper outside. Everything was well packed. They enclosed a hand written note which was a nice touch, and from looking at my receipt, it looks like they have some kind of frequent buyer program at the shop. (I have 68 more points to go! Whatever that means… :) ) I do like getting a few ounces to try rather than just a few cups like on the website. And for some teas, the cost is similar. I think this one was $2.46 for 2 ounces, rather than the $2 on the website for 4-5 cups worth. (It is also really cool that the return address on the box has Brigitte’s own name…..as you are getting a package from Brigitte Harney herself!)
