A friend came to tea at my house, got hooked on tea, and just had me order a huge box from Harney and Sons for her! Today it was my turn to be Invited to tea, as I delivered her new stash.
She mentioned that she is going out of town and is rather distressed because she needs her good tea but doesn’t have any teabags to take traveling.
Well, voila! I happened to bring this sample with me in case she wanted to try one more new thing.
This tea only comes in sachets right now, other than the loose leaf sample. If she liked it, we would simply order again and get her the tin of sachets!
This was absolutely delicious! I wonder if this is really just Earl Grey Supeme (my favorite Earl from Harney) with grapefruit flavor added? The bergamot is very light, as in VERY light. My friend and her daughters all loved it, and apparently so did her beagle, who kept trying to get the envelope out of my purse!
Is it too soon to start begging Michael Harney to make it available loose leaf? We will even accept it by the pound, right? And maybe people can order it by the ounce from the Millerton shop? Russel, can you make puppy dog eyes at him for us? Thanks!
