I have found a new favorite holiday black. This and the Candy Cane Lane tea will be my two primary holiday teas next year. Great stuff!

This sounds delicious! Did you purchase online, or do they sell this at brick-and-mortar stores? I’ve heard of Harney & Sons before but haven’t really scoped them out.

Apparently some people find H&S at Barnes and Noble! I have a local teashop that sells them, plus I’ve ordered online for more selection. I love them. :-)

I did get this one online, but I’ve seen them at B&N, too. The first time I tried them was in a cafe in Savannah, GA, and since then I’ve always been on the look out. :)

Bio

a tea drinking librarian
& a reading, yoga practicing, mommy

I’ve been into tea, at some level, since college with a first tin of loose tea brought back by my parents from Oxford. My love of tea increased with a visit to Boston and a chance cup at Tealuxe. Since then I’ve only gotten more interested in tea and have developed more of an appreciation for it.

tea rating guide
(updated 12/2010)

100: a perfect cuppa. these are the teas I’ll keep in my cupboard and tend to be one per type of tea.

90-99: will definitely get more of this tea

80-89: likely to get more and perhaps it will become a favorite with time

70-79: very good, depending on my mood or the season

60-69: wouldn’t actively try to get this tea, but also wouldn’t avoid it in a tea shop or restaurant

50-59: run-of-the-mill tea for me

40-49: decent, would hit the spot in some moods, but probably wouldn’t purchase it for my cupboard

30-39: okay, will try again, maybe

20-29: meh. I’d try this tea again if no other were available

10-19: drinkable, but a forced cup

0-9: didn’t even finish the cup
