drank Fruits d'Alsace by Harney & Sons
807 tasting notes

Well I want to give a HUGE Thank You to ashmara for this sample which is more than a sample in my opinion! I love this tea!!!!!
I have yet to try Tower of London yet wonderful generous ashmara also sent me a sample of that!
When I opened the bag I got wiffs of sweet yummy fruit and RUM!
The tea even tastes a smidgen like rum and fruit!
Oh yes I AM going to make some of this cold steeped!
I am absolutely ordering more when this is gone and I am doing a little happy dance right now! Not often do I fill my cup before it is empty but this one was half gone and I was dumping more in! I need a larger cup for that matter!
I also saw the BIGGEST cherry in my basket when I measured the tea out!
YAY!
Most of my fruit flavored teas are green ones. I needed another good solid black fruity tea in my stash and this is going to be in my PERM stash!
Love love love!
ashmara you made the cutest little name tags for the tea samples! Thank you – really appreciate this!

I need to get this sometime soon already! I’ve been saying that since I first saw it! I stayed in Alsace for about 9 days last May and have since needed everything possibly related to the area.

If you want a sample I can send you one from the sample I got. Or just order it NOW because it is SO good! I would be making an order today but waiting on some cash flow. Flow been slow the last few days lol

momo

I’m definitely going to buy it once I get through more of the things I have, so no worries! I try to use that as the reasoning instead of the lack of funds, haha. Oh it’s both, who am I kidding but this is definitely tops to finally get soon.

Hesper June

Well, Shoot!
I just ordered from H&S and this is one that I almost ordered!!
(sigh) Oh, WELL, just going to have to place another order soon and get it right this time;)

Azzrian

Awesome Amanda!
Hesper June – the neat thing about H and S it seems is that you get nice samples when you order from them. I don’t know personally but it seems that way from reading reviews here. I would be happy to send you Amanda’s sample since she is just ordering lol. PM if interested.
I can’t wait to place my first H and S order soon!

Hesper June

Oh, Azzrian, that is so sweet.
But, since I just recently fell in love with this Dragon Pearl…as in I am still drinking it and I want more, I am pretty sure I will be placing another order very soon as well.
So, you enjoy your sample while waiting for your order to come.
Yes,H&S do give out nice samples for sure.
I placed a modest order with H&S and I received 4 samples of their tea!

Azzrian

Oh wow FOUR samples! And their “samples” seem to be LARGE ones as well! Excellent to hear!
I am a sucker for samples from tea companies :)
I feel all companies should do this as they DO result in MORE SALES lol we are proof of that! :)
I will place an order soon!
I have a custom blend I need to pay for from Butiki WOO HOO then I will set my sights on H and S and well yeah a couple other places lol :)

Hesper June

Well, The samples were all sachet tea, not loose.
And it was one packet or sachet of each flavor.
I do not think they send out samples free in the boxes of loose tea, But I could be wrong.
I have just received the sachets.
But, it gives you the idea of loving or hating the tea and then you can order it in loose from them.
Also, the sachets are fairly nice, they are very open and even though the leaves are trapped, they do have space to float around.
I am all about letting the leaves float;)
Yes, I agree, usually when a company sends me samples of tea, it almost always guarantees a re-order:)

Kittenna

Ohhhhh man, I went through Harney’s flavoured teas the other night and found a bajillion I need to order. Pretty sure both this one and Tower of London were on the list! Their blends just seem to be done well; not overdone, as in the case of some companies.

Azzrian

Thanks Hesper June Well its good at least there is enough room for expansion in them!
Krystaleyn Im right there with ya girl!

ashmanra

Boston is also absolutely incredible. Don’t pass that one by!

Azzrian

Looking it up now. Wow I can travel around the world with these teas! :) Good thing since I rarely get out of my house to travel around THIS town.

ashmanra

Boston is completely different from Cranberry Autumn, though both have cranberry in them. Both are excellent, but Boston makes me want to cuddle the tin!

Azzrian

LOL Ashmara!

Bio

Most of my reviews will be “snippits” of full reviews that can be found at http://sororiteasisters.com/
Posted every evening at 6 EST.
I usually try to post the exact date that the full reviews will post however sometimes post dates need changed so it may not always be correct. Generally the dates are correct however.

About Me:

Most of my reviews, although not all, will be quite favorable of the tea. This is not because all tea is excellent, but more so because I generally will not waste my time on an inferior tea. If I do not care for a tea I won’t continue to drink it let alone spend time reviewing it. If you see a review by me you basically know it is a quality tea. Granted it may not suit your specific taste buds, we all like different things, but as for a tea on the whole it is a good one, from a good company.

I am a spiritual advisor by profession.
I have two “young adult” children.
Four cats and three dogs.

Some of my hobbies include gardening, essential oil therapy, natural perfumery with essential oils, and cooking.

I look for complexity overall in any tea, dimensions to the flavors.

I believe tea should evoke a feeling, thought, emotion, or attitude.

I enjoy most all oolongs, blacks, whites, and greens.

I always love to try a good yellow tea.

I favor unadulterated teas but I do have my longings for a good flavored tea now and then so I don’t rule them out by any means!

I enjoy green rooibos don not like red rooibos.
