Thanks BrooklynSheep for this sample.
I was at the August Steepster meetup.
I met BrooklynSheep
She had a lot of interesting stories and brought some sample teas.
She was a wizard of tea.
Her daddy worked at Lipton but was forced to drink sweet-touch-nee brand as a young girl.
Years later, she escaped and eventually made her way to London, and there is a tea store there that you can sent tea via postcards.
Brooklynsheep knows how to read those crazy tea labels, what batch, year, and quality tea.
I learned that she was sensitive to caffeine and liked decaf teas.
So BS told me that East Frisian by Harney & Sons was one of her favorites.
I read the package, Harney and Sons are Master Tea Blenders.
BrooklynSheep has a blog and been drinking and reviewing teas for awhile now.
She’s also into food, but that’s for another review
I have ample sample to try out.
Harney’s address is
5723 Route 22
Millerton NY 12546 – perhaps Road trip one day?
Back to the Tea – Tastes like orange pekoe.
This tea is nice and strong.
Very plain strong tea.
I liked it.
No fancy schmancy tea here – its Orange Pekoe.
It was nice meeting you BrooklynSheep!
