drank Tropical Green by Harney & Sons
1796 tasting notes

This is another tea that I took to my neighbor to introduce him to a good “starter” collection of teas. It is very smooth and sweet, has no bitterness or astringency, and is mild yet flavorful. The green tea base is well balanced with the fresh pineapple flavor, which is very refreshing.

My neighbor liked it very much, but was really taken by the puerh we drank. He actually had a friend pick up the puerh from the Vitamin Shop as a thank you gift to us for helping him while he is recovering.

I had no idea that the Vitamin Shop carried so much tea! He used to be the manager there and started naming a lot of teas that they carry – teas I have been buying out of town because I had no idea there was a local source! I need to go over there and check out the selection for myself.

Indigo: it was the Numi puerh that was picked up at the Vitamin Shop, rather than the Harney! I didn’t state it clearly, I guess! Unfortunately, Barnes and Noble is the only place for Harney here, and it is in sachets. :( Thank goodness for mail order!

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.

My avatar is a mole in a teacup! Long story…
