drank Chinese Flower by Harney & Sons
1813 tasting notes

I am trying to find some green teas to like because I almost exclusively drink black tea and I think drinking green will make me feel somehow more noble! Since I am not a fan of green teas the flavoring is going to be key. This one is so aromatic it is palpable when you open the tin. Lovely! And the steeped tea was very drinkable for me. I thought I was tasting oranges but the description says lemon. Shows how much I know! Maybe the three flowers blended in had an effect! And on that note….this tea is BEAUTIFUL! If you are having a group over for tea, put this in a nice glass container with a tight lid and keep it out as part of the decoration because these petals are bright and colorful and cheering!

Preparation

I feel the same way about green tea – I have to try this one to feel noble too :)

I tend to like flavored greens a little better.

@gmathis – I try to like greens but haven’t made it there yet! If I am in a situation where I need to drink it, I can, like when visiting my Japanese neighbor. At home black tea reigns! Of the ones I have tried, Bangkok and Chinese Flower by Harney are the most flavorful.

You can add me to this list of those who ‘try’ to like Greens, you know, so I can describe myself as a ‘real’ Tea Lover lol ..

I actually found Bangkok to be really nice chilled, and H&S Jasmine Dragon Pearls were truly YUM too! I’ll to have to give this a go now, based on your review :)

Hope you like it! I like the new Royal Wedding even better, and it is white tea with coconut, vanilla, and almond.

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…
