drank Anna's by TeaGschwendner

As promised on the label, this makes an excellent iced tea. The raspberry flavor comes through cleanly with a creamy sweetness in the background. The tea itself is mild with almost no astringency. Very good, I’ll be drinking it often this summer.

Not very good hot; but, rather good over ice although the pineapple and sugar-sweetness is almost overwhelming. I’d drink it again, just not in regular rotation.

drank Lime Gelato by DAVIDsTEA
31 tasting notes

This tea is fantastic iced! It’s limey, creamy, sweet and a little tangy, just like a the gelato it’s named for. I’m glad I gambled and got 100g on my first order. Nonetheless, you do have to use a full 2tsp (or more) per cup so it seems to be going fast.

This is the tea that turned me on to Harney and Son’s. It’s warm and cinnamony and sweet enough that it needs no additional sugar. A must have at my house.

drank Wedding Tea by Harney & Sons
31 tasting notes

I love this tea. I originally got it for serving at a bridal shower, but I like it so much I kept the extra and have since bought more. It’s got a delicate, sweet, vanilla-citrus taste that perfectly compliments the white tea.

drank Mint Verbena by Harney & Sons

I’m not typically a mint tea fan, but I do like this tea. The verbena tones down the mint and has a lovely scent. It is also good iced.

drank Holiday Tea by Harney & Sons
31 tasting notes

This is a perfect tea for a cold, gray day. It has a near perfect blend of spice and tea, not too overwhelming. It makes me want to curl up under a blanket, hold the cup close and snuggle.

Profile

Bio

I thought I liked tea, so I sought out good tea. Now I know I like (good) tea in all shapes, colors and sizes.

I nearly always drink it straight, no chaser unless I’m pretending to be The Queen.

I’ll also play around with brew times, temps and blending as it amuses me. But, as I am scientifically-minded, I remember what crazy combinations I like and will return to them often.
