Last night I received my Harney & Sons order which included several Tagalongs to try. I have traditionally been a black tea consumer and my experience with green teas is limited. This morning at work, I opened up my Tagalong container and from the moment the tin was opened, I was enchanted with the aroma of the blend. Visitors to my office notice the bouquet and admired the smell too. Adding hot water to the sachet just made it better and after watching it brew a few minutes and having the first taste, I feel as though I have a garden party in my mouth. It is wonderful. Someone else mentioned lemon drop candy, and yes, I agree, there is a taste of that with the flowers mixed in. At first I simply noticed that it was citrusy and floral and the longer I drink it the more lemon I taste. It is smooth, mellow and has body to the tea. The color is a medium to light honey color. Overall, I like this very much and will definitely buy more. I am not able to discern what the floral tastes are. I may pick up a slight rose taste but there are more flowers than that. The tea blend itself is beautiful visually and has large chunks of what appear to be orange peel, even though it taste more lemony. Yes, I will definitely add more to my cupboard of this blend. It will be among my favorites.

Bio

Although I have always loved tea, it has only been lately that I have decided to try out various teas in an attempt to learn more about various teas, flavors, and attributes of teas and why I like different teas. My children are grown and I enjoy a full life with work, friends, family, pets, and quite a few hobbies and interests. In addition to enjoying different teas, the health benefits of tea interest me as well.
