drank Diamond Jubilee by Harney & Sons
1876 tasting notes

I just love clicking “add to cupboard!”

I need something good to celebrate being home from my all day jaunt to Raleigh, Garner, and Durham. When I got here the box was waiting for me on the front porch. Hooray!!

This is the first time I have ordered a black and gold tin to go with the pound bag of loose leaf tea. I am really delighted that this service is available to us. I had the label preprinted for Diamond Jubilee so I don’t have to use the computer to print a clear Avery return address label for it. I think it was $1.25 to do this, tin and all. This is going to make it soooo much easier to split bags of tea with a friend.

Surprisingly, hubby agreed to drink this with me. I am surprised because he really does not like flavored black tea other than Vanilla Comoro or Vanilla Black by Harney, or Marco Polo from Mariages Freres.

This tea is fit for a Queen. The bergamot is definitely there but not bold and in your face and peppery. This is genteel tea for which one wants to hoist one’s pinky into the air. My tea party friend is not a big fan of bergamot, but I will serve it and see if she likes it better when it is mild like this one. I am having trouble picking up grapefruit flavor, but that has been true of every tea I have tried that says it has grapefruit flavor. I usually just get a citrus-y sweet taste.

Thank you, Harney and Sons, for humoring your tea fans who want everything loose leaf!

I also love clicking ‘add to cupboard’! And then I get a rush of guilt (sometimes!)

Bio

I am a music teacher and homeschooling mom who started drinking loose leaf tea about five 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 and oolongs.

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