drank SoHo Blend by Harney & Sons
1356 tasting notes

This is the Harney & Sons tea for me!! Thank you Cavocorax so much for sharing this amazing blend!

The smell is heavenly. Sweet and coconutty! The taste is akin to a delicious chocolate dipped coconut macaroon with just the perfect amount of black base to keep it from being too sweet. This is the perfect dessert cup and I am so glad I brewed it up. I will definitely need to get more of this in the future. Thanks again Cavocorax!

ETA: Having this resteeped and it is just as tasty as the first cup!

Now I am not going to want to drink more of the sample Cavo gave me until I have more coming to me. It is just too good to be without.

Perhaps I will place a Harney order – I mean I already have 4 orders on the way to my Dad’s place in LA. I can send him one more while I am at it.

You can find H&S at Chapters, but I haven’t seen this blend there yet. You can also get their teas at iHerb.com, they’re reasonable and shipping is only $4 if the package is under 4lbs. I’m going to be placing an order this week some time. :)

Thanks for the suggestion but I already checked both the chapters and iherb sites and had not luck finding this blend. Luckily my dad really does not mind being my tea mule and Harney has free shipping this weekend so once I try all the other samples I have, I will probably just place an order. And then I should be pretty much set for a while when it comes to tea.

I always forget who knows about Chapters. Glad your dad doesn’t mind. :)

I’m happy you like it! I felt the Coconut flavouring was a little too artificial, but I still enjoyed it. I guess I sent you enough H+S teas to help you get an order started. If you like green teas, Tokyo and Bangkok were good too!

VariaTEA

thanks for the suggestions! I will definitely look into them. And your samples are definitely helping me decide what I would want to get and what I don’t. Tomorrow I will try Boston Blend since that’s the only sample left I need to try. I will probably also retry Florence and see if maybe it was the way I brewed it that made me unhappy with it. Then I will probably place an order.

Bio

After being overweight all my life I finally decided to commit to the long journey of weight loss. When life got too monotonous with all the diet food I decided to try teas in hopes of finding new flavors. I never realized the addiction I would face and now I am in love with all things tea!

However, I am still new to the tea scene and although I have bought many David’s Teas and Teavana Teas I know there is just so much out there to try and I am excited for each and every new experience. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! My cupboard has grown exponentially since joining this site and I have a lot to share. Feel free to snoop through my cupboard and message me if anything interests you – I am always happy to swap!

Well after over a month on steepster, I have learned many new things about tea and my own personal tastes. For me, flavored teas are definitely my sweet spot. I will most often reach for black teas and rooibos or honeybush blends but I do keep some flavored whites and greens around for when the mood strikes. I have a few herbals/tisanes but most of the time I find myself disappointed by them as they often smell deliciously sweet and then end up tasting tart/sour. I have a little bit of an aversion to pu’erh and oolong teas. I am also wary of florals, earl greys, and chai teas. I do not like overpowering citrus flavors nor do I usually like hibiscus, licorice or chamomile. I love dessert teas – caramel, vanilla, and other sweet flavors make me smile. Fruits like strawberry, peach, mango, and pineapples will often catch my attention as well. Oh and I LOVE Red Leaf Tea’s flavored matcha.

I have also realized that although I really enjoy adding frothed milk to some of my teas, if I do not like the tea with zero additives (just in plain water without milk or sugar), I probably won’t drink it. The one exception is flavored matchas which I will happily drink in cold milk if I do not like it mixed with hot water. My theory is if the tea can’t stand on its own then it is not for me and I will more than likely try to swap it out for something else.

Tea Ratings (a loose guide):
1-15 – This cup is going down the drain
16-30 – I will finish the cup but I am not making another
31-50 – I don’t think I like this but I will try another cup just to be sure
51-60 – I am really on the fence about this tea
61-70 – I like this enough to finish what I have but I won’t be buying it again
71-80 – I like this and will buy it every now and then
81-90 – I really like this and will replace it as soon as I can
91-100 – I LOVE this and will buy more before I run out of what I have so that this is never missing from my cupboard
