I had a sampling of this tea before my vacation and wrote a review on it that posted while I was somewhere in the middle of the pacific ocean. When I got back, I promptly finished the remainder of my sample.

Very nice tea! Pretty dry leaf with pink amaranth petals. Steeped up, SoHo Blend smells like hot chocolate. The flavor has a great malty black tea base with a smooth chocolate flavor. There is a hint of sweet coconut and floral adding a nice sophistication to the tea. With that said, super tasty! I could be convinced to purchase more of this tea – highly recommended for a chocolately dessert tea lover! I actually like this blend more than all the other H&S teas I’ve tried so far!

Oh wow – I’d love to try this! I love Harney and Sons tea.

VariaTEA

This definitely is a delicious Harney tea. My favourite as well. Although I quite enjoy Vanilla Comoro and Boston Blend.

I got Vanilla Comoro to try next. So far I’ve had Fruits d’alasce, Bangkok, Love Life, and Tokyo and this SoHo Blend was the best by far!

VariaTEA

I actually haven’t tried any of those. I have tried some of the popular ones like Florence and Paris and I prefer SoHo to those.

Vanilla Comoro is best with milk in my opinion but it can be off if not brewed properly. In fact, I really didn’t like it when I first had it but it has grown on me since then.

Boston Blend is a nice tea for everyday because it is fruity but not over-the-top. It is a nice balanced flavor. Very different from SoHo though which is so chocolatey and sweet.

VariaTEA

If you ever want to try some, I just bought 4 oz so I think I can spare a cup or two to send your way :)

I liked Vanilla Comoro..it tasted good with my almond milk. Though I mostly prefer my tea with just sugar or sugar substitute. Boston Blend is on my looong list of H&S teas I would love to try.

Bio

I’m a tea blogger – The Oolong Owl
www.OolongOwl.com – I do tea reviews, obsessively photograph teas with mischievous crocheted Owls and get tea drunk. I am also a crochet / knitting designer at Awkward Soul Designs.

I was raised on floral oolongs and green teas, mostly “beauty” teas. Early on as a kid, I can guzzle an entire pot of tea (or two) at a Chinese or Japanese restaurant.
These days I like adventurous and interesting tea blends. I’m fearless in trying new teas! I’m into oolong, pu’erh, white, green, black, guayusa, mate and herbals. I’m not into red rooibos but I keep buying it anyway.

The tea brand that got me started into loose leaf teas was DAVIDsTea. I used to live in Vancouver Canada and had access to their shop, however that is now limited since I moved to southern California.

However, the perks of living in the US is ultra cheap, fast shipping! Since then, my tea stash insanely expanded.

Other stuff I’m into that sneaks into my tea notes: Brazilian jiu-jitsu, metal music, drawing, painting, cooking, photography and nail polish.

BTW, my Steepster cupboard is not even close to accurate and I track my teas on a spreadsheet. Last update 512 Teas May 2015.
