drank Tilleul by Harney & Sons
2585 tasting notes

I got this as a sample from Harney & Sons. I think this Tilleul must be an acquired taste or something. I was looking for something to use as a nighttime bev in addition to my chamomile and verbena. This smells like a chlorinated swimming pool and tastes bitter to me. I am not one to sweeten any tea but I needed some sugar to help it along.

Recently I read this is a very popular cold remedy in Europe. I dunno… For sure not a favorite but I doubt this has anything to do with Harney. More likely it’s the nature of the beast.

I actually bought a box based on the description and had the same negative reaction. Not what I expected or desired. I just forgot about it until I realized I ran out of my chamomile tea during my latest flu/cold. Desperate I made a cup and let me tell you this tea is fabulous. Maybe with my lessened olfactory senses it tastes different, but for sure it is great. It is creamier than chamomile and more satisfying than lemon. and being sick, it really relieved some of my discomfort. I will not be without it during a cold season.

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
