drank Sally's Secret by Harney & Sons
1825 tasting notes

Thank you, Jen, for this very generous sample! I came home from the beach and this was one of the first things in the mountain of mail to be opened.

I looked up my review from a while back when I sampled the tea because my memory of it was really fuzzy. The last time I tried this tea I took it plain, so I decided to add a sprinkle of sugar this time. My tastebuds were a wee bit seared by some salsa that I ate as a quick and easy supper (still not done unpacking) so I got some little cubes of Swiss cheese to cool my mouth. Now that my tastebuds have revived, this is good! I am reminded more of Rose Congou by Upton than of Rose Scented by Harney and Sons as I drink this, but mainly in the base. The rose is not nearly as forward in this one, though, and the bergamot is stronger than I remembered. I like this very much! Thank you, again, Jen! Having new tea waiting was a nice “Welcome home!”

Thanks! I love beach vacation, but I love being home and getting things back to normal. Maybe normal should be in quotes! LOL!

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…
