drank Boston Blend by Harney & Sons
835 tasting notes

Noooo, I just spilled a cup’s worth from the pouch. This is the fourth time drinking this though so I already know that I’ll need to purchase more in the future, anyway.

Cranberry, you say. The dry leaf smells more like raspberry to my nose. Like a chocolate raspberry cordial.

Simply put, it tastes like it too. I haven’t tried it with additives yet but only because I’m enjoying it so much black. As this cools down, the almond comes out a little more. A perfect autumn cup on a cool, rainy day.

One thing I especially appreciate about H&S teas so far is that they’re not overly sweet. Many of my flavoured teas have simply been too sweet for me lately, and I’ve been craving unflavoured teas, especially my holy grail genmaicha, but I don’t have any in the house, nor have I found any in this city yet. Boston at least is more balanced in the world of sweetness.

I definitively need to buy some H&S teas.

Ah bummer I hate it when that happens! Good tea though :)

ashmanra

This is one of my favorites!

Fairway market should have some of this awesome genmaicha.. http://steepster.com/teas/ujinotsuyu/3511-genmaicha

That’s the one I’ve been looking for. It’s been a staple for years! I checked the Fairway near my place but no such luck. Maybe another location, or the Japanese grocery store downtown. You just need to find the time to make such trips. :)

Maybe the one on Quadra and Hillside would have it, considering how large their Asian section is.

I luckily ended up finding some at the Fairway on McKenzie and Shelbourne. I remembered being there a few months ago and noticing that their Asian section was substantially larger than the one at Shelbourne and Cedar Hill X.

But thanks for the tip! I just knew the tea capital had to have some somewhere. :)
