drank Rose Scented by Harney & Sons
1942 tasting notes

Guess what time it is? Harney time! As I get more recent in this chronology I start hitting “runs” of tea, like this one, when I bought a big restock order of Harney teas and so I have a number of them to drink through in a row. But I also haven’t drank them in a long time, so it’s nice to have at them again!

Ahhh roses. I will never fail to recommend this tea when someone is looking for an exceptionally rosey tea. In my opinion this one can’t be beat. I love some other rose blacks as well, but for falling into a pile of roses, this is your tea. The very definition of “lovely.”

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 3 min, 0 sec 2 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML

Bio

I am tea obsessed, with the stash to match. I tend to really enjoy green oolongs, Chinese blacks, and flavored teas with high quality bases, especially florals, bergamot-based teas, and chocolate teas.

In my free time I am a birder, baker, and music/movie/tv addict.

Here are my rating categories, FYI:
100-90: Mind-blowingly good, just right for my palate, and teas that just take me to a happy place.
89-85: I really really like these teas and will keep most of them in the permanent collection, but they’re not quite as spectacular as the top category
84-80: Pretty tasty teas that I enjoy well enough, but definitely won’t rebuy when I run out.
79-70: Teas that I would probably drink again, but only if there were no preferrable options.
69-50: Teas that I don’t really enjoy all that much and wouldn’t drink another cup of.
49 and below: Mega yuck. This tea is just disgusting to me.
Unrated: Usually I feel unqualified to rate these teas because they are types of teas that I tend to not like in general. Sometimes user error or tea brewed under poor conditions.
