drank Wedding Tea by Harney & Sons
2224 tasting notes

Usually I am not a fan of citrus flavors in tea but between Roswell Strange’s reviews and the deliciousness of Fauchon’s L’Hiver, I decided to give this a try. Consequently, when the amazing NayLynn asked if I wanted anything else from Harney’s aside from the oz of Soba Cha she offered to send my way, I took her up on her offer and got a sample of this. Sipping on it now, I am super happy that I did and I am extremely delighted that the sample is rather large because this tea is really good. It is like a slice of lemon cake, emphasis on the lemon, with a touch of vanilla sugar glaze to add a nice dose of creamy sweetness to the cup. Definitely a nice treat. So, thank you Roswell Strange for peaking my interest and thank you NayLynn for ever so graciously facilitating my order. You guys are AMAZING!!

Ugh, I want this back! This and Soba Cha…

I can share some of both if you like :). It is not a problem to just toss some into the package I am sending.

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!

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, toffee, cookie, cream, and other sweet flavors make me smile. Fruits like strawberry, peach, mango, and pineapples will often catch my attention as well.

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.
