drank Wedding Tea by Harney & Sons
1812 tasting notes

My oldest daughter asked me to order some white tea for her. She has only recently begun to drink tea, and only because she has read so much about the benefits, so she really isn’t going to be attracted by the TEA taste. Together we chose this one as her starting place for white tea.

The aroma is lovely and very light and…feminine? The vanilla dominates but isn’t really strong. The liquor is darker than I expected. I think she will love this. My first sips were reminding me of something and I couldn’t quite put my finger on it at first. Then I got it…wedding cookies! The ones dusted with confectioner’s sugar. As it cools the lemon steps forward a little more, but overall this is a delightfully restrained tea with great flavor and classic character. Give this to your guests who think they don’t like tea and you will probably make them into tea converts.

Bio

I am a music teacher and homeschooling mom who started drinking loose leaf tea about four years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.
