A bit back, my mom and I placed a Harney order to keep at her place and we got a tagalong tin of this tea in sachets because they were out of normal-size tins of it in sachets and she had wanted to try it and we were trying to meet the amount needed for free shipping. She tried it yesterday and said the flavors were very light and so was the tea base but she could taste both the cranberry and orange.

When I steeped mine this morning, I noticed that the tin said it was a ceylon base tea so I am thinking that’s why she thought so. I found it an enjoyable cup, similar to Harney’s Boston Blend but different. I could taste the cranberry more but also the orange, which was like a tart orange rind effect rather than orange juice or orange candy.

2 steeps

LOL I just did it today when I updated my profile. Figured I’d jump on the name change bandwagon. ;) I’m not 100% sure I’m keeping this one but I think I am. But I’m waiting to post until I’m sure (IE tomorrow) b/c I don’t wanna change than change again. #indecisivemuch But I’m back posting I think now, instead of just loitering and reading. Sharp eye for catching it so quickly !

I saw the avatar and went-whoa, who is using Chrine’s teacup? And then I went to your log and realized it was you. I vote for keeping the name. I love NYC also-lived there for a lot of years and miss it terribly.

Profile

Bio

I’m 33 years old, studying pharmacy, and have a surly cat named Bin. I love tea, coffee, beer, wine, and most things food and beverage related. I also love music, movies, reading, writing, and learning new things.

I’ve drank tea all my life but about five to six years ago, my close friend Spautz got into tea and got me more into tea. I drink black teas and tisanes/herbals most. Since receiving a variable temperature kettle from my parents for Xmas this past year, I’ve been drinking more greens, oolongs, and whites. I’m very very new to puerh. That is, I’ve had only one.
