drank Boston Blend by Harney & Sons
1698 tasting notes

This is a good news/bad news sorta thing: my Harney&Sons order arrived today! Holy moley you guys. Everything smells so amazing! I guess the bad news is that I am UP to 145 teas, and some of these are bigger quantities that I don’t want to sipdown. And I’m still expecting tea from TerriHarpLady, Kittenna, JustJames and one or two others.

Either way – Sil – I hope you like H&S, because if I’m as happy with these teas as I expect to be, I’m going to want a group order. :O

Now, onto THIS TEA.
Even though I wasn’t feeling so great I had to try SOMETHING, so here I am. Why not Boston? And it’s as good as I’d hoped for. It’s a strong black, without being bitter, and I can totally taste the fruit underlying it. I think I’m getting the almond too!

I’ll rate this another day as I have 4oz to drink up, and I don’t trust my taste buds completely yet.

ETA: Gaaaah. This is so good. Also, this office is freaking HOT. It’s 27C in here? I hope my tea will be ok in my metal cabinet…

Sil

Fine by me. Though I’m hoping toget to New York for a weekend to get some sample or smell stuff lol

Sil

Also…I apparently haven’t tried this one yet lol

Cavocorax

Would you like to? I’ve got lots of this, SoHo and Florence. Can’t remember which you’d sent me. I’d better get you hooked so I can set the stage for a group order in a few months!

Terri HarpLady

Is this the one with cranberry in it? I think I tried a sample of it awhile back & I recall thinking that cranberry wouldn’t be good, but it WAS!

Sil

Soho and Boston yes I’d love to. I enjoy Florence but obviously I’ve tried it before lol

ashmanra

I almost didn’t buy this one a couple of years ago because I already had Cranberry Autumn, but I bought it and found that it is totally different. I think I like this one even more than CA!

Cavocorax

Yeah it’s the one with cranberry. It’s much better than the description (but then again almonds don’t get me excited).

And Sil, I guess I already promised you the Vanilla Comoro and SoHo, so will add the Boston and ship some day. :)

Sil

oh yeah… sounds good madam. clearly no rush on my end lol

Lilysmom

Wow – sounds very nice! So, how quickly did you get your order exactly? I didn’t get any shipping confirmation for my Tuesday order yet, but maybe tomorrow……seemed like your tea came pretty fast!

Bio

Tea: I just started drinking loose tea in the fall of 2012, and once I started I had to get more and more and try ALL THE TEAS. Joining Steepster made this worse/easier.

So far it seems that I prefer unflavoured black teas, although I still drink a few that are flavoured each day too. Oolongs, greens, puerhs and white teas are all very good, but I just don’t crave them as often.

Yet.

Me: Ok. Random things. I like animals, I have a baby girl and a devoted bf, and … I’m a geek. I like Lord of the Rings, Sherlock, Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, Supernatural, pen&paper RPG’s, online RPG’s, video games, silly internet memes, puzzles and a bunch of others things! I taught myself to knit and I’m considering crochet but I need to make time for all these things!

Ratings:
1-50: Bleh.
51-64: It’s ok.
65-75: It’s good.
76-85: It’s very good. (Buy 1oz+)
86-100: Amazing. (ALWAYS re-stock)
