Thank you Amanda for including this one! I think Harney’s teas are either hit or miss for me, really in terms of how astringent they become when they cool down. I don’t know why I do that, since it probably indicates the quality of a tea rather than less quality. I have no idea, but since it is Harney, it probably indicates the quality of the tea. There are only a couple I’ve tried that get astringent, and I really don’t like that flavor. ANYWAY, this one doesn’t get astringent no matter how cool it gets! So it’s a hit (that reminds me of a Rilo Kiley song I love.) But I think it would be delicious anyway even if it gets astringent (so I don’t know where I was going with that anyway). But there IS a flavor of combined cherry, peaches and plums! The individual flavors are there, equally balanced. Wow! They aren’t kidding! All on a nice strong black tea base that somehow doesn’t overpower the delicate but definitely present fruity flavors. There was a wisp of bergamot and a sweetness to it as well. Add this to slowly growing pile of Harney teas I love (Paris, Vanilla Comoro & Hot Cinnamon Sunset!) I really wish their site would accept paypal…

Hi! I love tea and trying new ones – it adds a bit of variety to my day! Books, music, TV & movies are my thing… and tea, of course.

Most of the teas listed in my cupboard are actually sample sizes. I don’t really have 2,000 ounces of tea around here! I was bored one day and found out that most of them have only one teaspoon left… maybe two. But I like keeping them in my cupboard list for reference to what I could be sipping. Usually, I write tasting notes once for each tea. I’m still drinking them, just not writing tasting notes each time!

My dislikes: hibiscus, ginger (unless in chai), charcoal type flavors

My ratings:
95-100 – Super awesome deliciousness favorites
80-95 – Also pretty delicious
65-80 – Pretty good
40-65 – Okay
1-40 – Probably won’t want to sip it again

I’m planning on being a Steepsterer as long as there IS a Steepster, so if you’re not hearing from me, that means something happened to my health… if you know what I mean. :D

Happy sipping!
