drank English Breakfast by Harney & Sons
1768 tasting notes

A whole pot with some Swiss cheese cubes to celebrate a beautiful day! Harney’s English Breakfast is 100% keemun, and having just had a cup of their Hao Ya A I can really tell it! This has very nice cocoa notes and great body and flavor. It is smooth and lovely and while it is considerably less expensive than Hao Ya A it has all the attributes of keemuns that we love.

The wind is blowing billowing clouds of yellow pollen around, so my earlier washing of the car is already undone, but I don’t mind – it was too pretty to stay inside! The dogwoods are so heavy with flowers they are almost blinding, the tall pines all around me are releasing puffs of yellow, and there are five speckled blue eggs in my fern thanks to the little house finches. It’s a good day. I’m taking the tea tray outside!

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…
