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

Was more generous with the leaves this morning to try and get some more character out of this tea. It worked, the earl greyness was much more dominant and the rosebuds were much more present in this very light kind of weird tangy fruity form around the edges. This earns it a rating move up to the smiley face, but it’s still a little subtle for me, I am thinking.

I mean, I know it’s supposed to be a secret, but if it’s very nearly a secret from the person drinking as well…I’m just not seeing the point.


Secrets can be fun — like Victoria’s. Just sayin’ ;)

I’m a Pole who grew up in Texas, is currently a graduate student in California studying Japan. How’s THAT for random?

Being Polish, my family has always drunk a lot of tea, and I am no different. I may drink more tea than water. On the other hand, I can’t say that I’m very particular about it; I’m generally pretty careless with steeping times and water temperature and I don’t even have a proper teapot (mostly because the lid broke during the move to California ;_;).

I always drink my tea unsweetened and I only add milk in the case of the most egregiously chai-ish of chais. (not really a big fan of milk in general)

Given that so many of my entries seem to be about my morning tea, I felt I should add something here about me and mornings: I fail at mornings. I fail at them a LOT. Therefore I often also fail at proper tea making in the mornings.
