Special thanks to ashmanra for sending me this sample which is making my morning quite delightful!

Most often I drink single black teas instead of blends, because I find I don’t care for the blends. However, this is delicious! I am just getting used to drinking black teas straight, and if I can drink a black tea without dumping milk and sugar in it, I find that to be a good sign. ;-)

This is a very rich and round tea. Others have said it’s a blend of assam, ceylon, keemun and oolong. I am not picking up on smoky flavors but I am definitely getting the oolong here in the finish. This would be a nice breakfast blend for myself although I could also see serving it as an afternoon or evening tea. It’s exceedingly smooth and elegant and would go well with sweets or heartier fare. I can see wanting to have this in my cupboard at all times, so now I am kind of bummed I just placed an order with H&S a few days ago!

I couldn’t help myself and I googled the Palm Court, it looks rather posh:

I couldn’t tell if they were serving this Harney tea from looking at their menu, but it does seem like quite an experience! Dreaming….

Sounds like something worth checking out.

It certainly appealed to me. ;-)

Sounds wonderful. I’ll have to add it to my shopping list!

ashmanra

I love it, too. This one is also great mixed with rose scented for an afternoon foofy treat! You may also like Eight at the Fort by Harney. It reminds me a wee bit of this one.

I agree Ash…….8 at the 4RT does have some similarities.

Bio

My profile pic is of a pink dahlia at Golden Gate Park.

Hobbies include: tea, making art, animals, vegan things, buddhism, nature, creativity, books, writing, cooking, meditation, yoga.

I am a fan of many different teas but my favorites are blacks and oolongs, chai, also like darjeeling and pu-erh. I’n always learning and expanding my horizons!

Dislikes include: bergamot, jasmine, highly tannic or bitter teas, overly judgmental and bitter people. :)

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta

95-100 I love this tea and would like to keep it around

94-90 An excellent tea which I may or may not repurchase

89-80 Pretty good, above average

79-70 Acceptable

69-60 Mundane – Will probably drink it if I have it

59-50 Ick

49 and below Nasty
