On occasion I like to treat myself with things like new shoes, some jewelery or a single serve sachet from Harney & Sons. I’m glad that yesterday I did that latter, because this is one of the nicest teas from this brand I’ve ever had! Its a lovely delicate and incredibly smooth black tea with a hint of currant. Perfect for light morning tea with cucumber sandwiches and shortbread. Also to sully this infusion with milk would be a crime so please don’t!

Take note other companies: After being able to purchase a single cup worth of tea leaves to try, of a blend that sounded more interesting than delicious but it was only $1 so I didn’t mind risking it, I’m going to buy a 200g tin of it next week!

So glad you like it! I agree that adding milk to it would be a crime, the flavors are very subtle. If you enjoy this tea, I’d recommend a few others to get samples of: Indian Nimbu, Wedding Tea and Boston. The first two revolve around the idea of sweet and citrusy flavors, with a darjeeling base and a mutan white base respectively, and the Boston has an exquisite cranberry almond blend.

Thanks so much for the recommendations, I’ll definitely keep an eye out for them!
