drank Wedding Tea by Harney & Sons
2577 tasting notes

I’ve never had this one before and couldn’t resist picking some up when I came across a local coffee shop that sold some Harney teas in the tagalong tins…

The color of this is darker than some white teas I’ve tried and I was wondering if perhaps this was due to the rose element. When I compare mine to the picture that Harney provides, it definitely looks a lot darker. The aroma of this is very flowery and flavor wise, I get more vanilla and rose than anything else. A nice sweetness is present here but I wouldn’t say the lemon note is too prominent (I can’t really find it). I’m not the biggest fan of white teas in general, but I could see how this would be nice for a wedding or an afternoon tea served with cake.

More vanilla seems to be coming to the front as the cup cools, and if you ask me, this is smelling more and more like a cupcake as time goes by. I may try steeping this at a slightly lower temp. next time.

Probably not something I need to keep around for the permanent collection but I will certainly finish off the mini tin.

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
