drank Golden Snail by Harney & Sons
1816 tasting notes

I had a friend over today who is a former coffee drinker turned tea lover, and specifically good black tea, like Queen Catherine, Vanilla Black, Emperor’s Red…you get the idea. I was really eager for her to try this one. Indeed, it was a hit! It is easy to forget just how assertive this tea is, with its rich cocoa notes and smooth body. It has been sold out for a while – here’s hoping they find a new batch just as tasty for us to buy! Speaking of which, have you seen the new tea listing,on Harney’s website? Wild Wuyi Black! I can hardly wait! Fujian teas, especially Wuyi mountains ones, are my favorites!

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 4 min, 30 sec

I didn’t see it! I think the coming releases of the black teas are going to make me feel like a little kid on Christmas morning!

Oh, I am so tempted! Something about a new Harney Chinese black has me needing to sit on my hands so I won’t order…..(and there is a new code out for free shipping at the $25 mark.) I do NOT need tea right now. I guess I will have to wait for your review, and hope it does not go out of stock too quickly! Until I give in, that is……let’s be realistic. I am so weak….

Jen – do you know what the code is? I might treat myself to a tin of this and Keemun Mao Feng…omg!

JacquelineM

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…
