I made my first cup before I refreshed my memory on the contents and my first thought was oooh—-fruit! Second thought was that this is a lot like Marco Polo, but a lot less finicky (I was typically sloppy with prep this bleary morning).

Now that I’ve checked, neither of those thoughts were very accurate, ingredient wise. But muddy thinking notwithstanding, this is very good, very sweet, and I can’t wait to try another cup with a little milk.

Many thanks to SimplyJenW!

You are welcome. I did just update Steepster with Harney’s current description of this tea….stone fruits, bergamot, and honey….

Stone fruits; now, that makes sense!

I agree, there is a similarity between ToL and Marco Polo. For me thing, my hubby will drink very few, VERY FEW, teas, but he will drink both of those! :) Hubby gave me ToL as a surprise two years ago because he knew I wanted to try it. Michael Harney started making it loose leaf because I begged him for six months! :D

@Ashmanra – Any chance you want to beg him to sell it in less than 1 pound increments?? : )

If you call the Millerton number, I think you can buy however many ounces you want! :)

Oh, or possibly the Soho store as well!

Somebody asked me once when I became a tea junkie; I think it dates back to college when I needed caffeine for a 7 a.m. class but chose not to do coffee. My favorite teapot is a medium-sized Brown Betty given to me by my Mema; the painted flowers are chipping off, but the size and feel is perfect. I rejoice when I get a morning to brew a pot of loose tea starting with a kettle; not a bag and a hot pot.
