drank Wedding Tea by Harney & Sons
814 tasting notes

I had this at the Roswell Tea House today, and from the description was pretty sure it was Harneys though it didn’t explicitly say. And I was right! It’s probably not good that I’m memorizing tea descriptions, is it?

I could take or leave the rose, but the idea of a lemon vanilla white was too good to pass up. Initially when I got the pot it seemed astringent, and I was worried it had been oversteeped, but I think that was just the tartness of the lemon. As it cooled the vanilla peeked out more and smoothed out the ends of the sip. The rose kind of wove in and out between the other flavors but it seemed more noticeable in the scent than anything else. And the white tea was the perfect backdrop – it was a light tea perfect for spring. This is one that I could definitely see as being good cold. Once I make a dent in the mountain of tea I currently possess I’ll probably buy some to give it a shot!

I have come to the point (as of October 2014) where quality in tea is more important than quantity. Especially because I’m a seasonal tea drinker where hot tea is concerned, and a SLOW one to boot. I generally don’t resteep only because I’d be here all day if I did, though I do break out a gaiwan from time to time.

I adore French teas in practically every iteration, Japanese Sencha (specifically from the Uji region, as they offer the most seaweed flavor), and Dan Cong oolongs. I am trying to focus on plain teas and so companies like Verdant, Upton, and Butiki are on my favorites list.

When it comes to tea, I feel like the 10th Doctor says it best:

“Tea! That’s all I needed! Good cup of tea! Super-heated infusion of free-radicals and tannin, just the thing for healing the synapses. "
