drank Royal Wedding by Harney & Sons
1832 tasting notes

I can’t believe this tea wasn’t already in the database. I may have done something wrong in looking it up, but I tried several times and didn’t find it.

When I opened the tin I was reminded of a scented candle called Baking with Grandma or some such thing. It smelled quite good, like the best sugar cookies that are made with a little coconut oil – like Mystic by Pepperidge Farms. The flavors listeed for the tea are coconut, vanilla, and almond. No wonder it smells like a great cookie! When brewed, the tea was darker than I expected a white tea to be. I drank it sans additions and it was quite good – very mild and smooth with a nice, soothing aroma.

I just saw this in the H & S catalogue but the “abundance of pink rosebuds” scared me away. I’ve had really bad rose-in-food experiences. Was it really noticeable?

I neither tasted nor smelled any rosebuds! You should be safe. I got coconut and vanilla predominantly, and lastly the almond flavor hiding in there. Smooth and good. Shall I send a sachet?

I almost ordered this one! But I wanted to see some reviews before taking the plunge. I think I will add it to the next one!

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…
