drank Boston Blend by Harney & Sons
1623 tasting notes

Have always wanted to try this one; Nicole gave me the opportunity. Without peeking at reviews, I remembered there was cranberry, but I couldn’t put my finger on the “other” I was tasting. Other is almond! And really, really tasty almond at that.

These are two flavors that can be used in interpreted really badly—way too tart on the cranberry, way too bitter on the almond, but this is a pretty perfect representation of both. I think I may need to try some on ice!

I miss having this tea in my cupboard! It is really good with a tad of milk and sugar too.

One of my favorites. This is a shelf requirement, should I ever actually succeed in paring down my collection.

I wondered about the milk thing … I think there’s enough in the packet I can try it both ways.

I love doing desserts with this. Steeping it in cream and using that to top things, creme brulee infused with this, ice cream… all yum. :)

I am in awe of your foodiness! (I really do need to learn to cook with tea.)

Bio

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.
