drank English Breakfast by Harney & Sons
1848 tasting notes

My tin is getting dangerously low, and I bought the one pound bag! It is almost gone…

It is finally a really cold morning here. I needed some warmth to look forward to after breakfast. Tea is almost always after, rather than with. This one is especially yummy today.

There is a taste and texture I get from some Keemuns and from Teavivre’s Fengqing Black Dragon Pearls. It is almost as if a dark cocoa powder is being dragged across your tongue, and that is a good thing! I guess it doesn’t sound that way, but it is, because it is a chocolate-y but dry but not an astringent feel that is going on. It catches your attention if you are distracted by other things and says, “Hey, appreciate me here!”

This is really hitting the spot this morning.

Do you think this one is similar to the HRP Royal English Breakfast, or is there another Harney which is most similar? Love the strength and flavor of the Royal, but would like loose :)

I feel that this one is smoother, Jacqueline. The Suoreme English Breakfast is more similar to the Royal Englsih Breakfast. This one is pure Keemun. I will get some on its way to you today! I am ordering another pound and a pound of vanilla black as well! Also, I want you to try Hugo Tea Organic Mornings Journey. I think it is right up your alley. Thomas would want you to have some.

Wow, I just looked back at this and saw all those typos. Where is autocorrect when you actually NEED it? LOL!

I will send you some Mountain Rose Herbals in exchange! xoxox

I need to find out if Hugo has a storefront, since they’re in my state. We don’t head that direction very often, but I’m sure I could find an excuse….

Check out their Facebook page! It says you can buy their tea at Mildred’s in the crossroads. Not sure if that helps, I am guessing it is in Kansas City.

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.

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