From Harney & Sons

Wedding Tea is an elegant blend crafted for that very special day. Beautiful pink rosebuds and petals capture the eye amidst Chinese Mutan white tea buds, creating the perfect wedding tea. The lemon and vanilla addition impart a wonderfully aromatic scent. A token of the years to come, it is a tea of pure bliss for a most noteworthy occasion.

Stupid Steepster deleting all my likes.

Yay, another sip down. I bought this over a year ago and I’d say it’s best fresh. The lemon and vanilla are creamier and, well, fresher. Not a fan of the base though, but then again, I’ve never been a huge fan of white tea. Maybe using a bai mu dan like the one that Stacy/Butiki uses would work with this.

keychange

Yup, steepster deletes all my likes also! how annoying.
And I think I could have loved this tea on a black base, but alas it isn’t meant to be.

Fjellrev

Such an annoying glitch! I hope they’ll fix it eventually.

A black base could definitely work too.

ashmanra

Mine, too! I have apologized to people repeatedly so they will know I have read and liked their notes and when I go back, my like is gone.

Nxtdoor

Are you guys sure? Because I’ve seen my red hearts disappear also but when I click on the link with the likes (beside the heart) I can see my avatar picture there. Which would indicate the like was recorded.

Fjellrev

Interesting, I never considered checking that out, but I’ll keep that in mind for next time that happens. I re-liked everything before checking.

Nxtdoor

You can still check because the pictures are in the order the likes were received. So if you’re somewhere in the middle, then your like was saved. If you are the last one (usually not) then your recent heart is the only one that got recorded and the previous one was wiped. Makes sense?

Fjellrev

Learn something everyday. :) I actually happened to find one that I missed, so the heart was still empty, and you’re right, my like was still there, and in the middle. Same as the other ones which I re-liked.

I swear there was a time, before the whole train of recent updates, when the likes were alphabetically arranged, because I specifically remember it looking like that. Either it was or it was just a coincidence the few times when I would bother to take notice.

Tea party began today with this tea. I had purchased it for my daughter who wanted to try some white teas and she really didn’t like it. My guest today, who usually strongly favors black tea, really liked it a great deal. Of the three teas we had today, none was a clear winner over the others. This is the first time we haven’t each expressed clear preferences, though our preferences are often different.

The vanilla flavor is strongest, though don’t take that to mean that it is strong. It is a delicately flavored tea but not one where you have to silence the radio, squint one eye, and concentrate to find the flavor. Behind the vanilla comes the light lemon note, very softly. This was really lovely today.

Oh, wow. This is fantastic! Lovely and light and, dare I say, perfect. Dry the rose scent comes through a lot stronger, but mellows nicely when steeped and the vanilla gently escorts your nose into the first sip. I get a titch of what seems like a hint of almond? But all the flavors are so even, dancing with each other politely. No sign of a drunken uncle at this wedding ;)

Today my husband and I are celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary – we are drinking Harney & Sons Wedding Tea and reviewing it together.

We used one sachet per 8 oz cup (a little stronger than the suggested usage) in 180 degree water and steeped it for 3 minutes; the result was a deep yellow-orange liquor. The flavor was delicate but not weak.

We were both able to distinguish individual notes of vanilla and rose with a faint lemon background on a base of white tea, but when we sat back and experienced the ingredients in concert we discovered the taste and aroma of marshmallow candy.

We both enjoyed this tea; my husband rated it a 77, I gave it a 79.

This combo sounds LOVELY! It even inspired me to create my own blend. Happy anniversary!

JacquelineM

Happy anniversary :) I’ve heard your husband DJ before many shows I’ve attended :) So funny what a small world it is.

Paul M Tracy

Congrats! My wife and I are coming up on #21. I might try to find this for our day too.

Glamorosi

Thank you everyone for your good wishes!

Cofftea, I look forward to reading about your blend.

JacquelineM, my husband was flattered you remembered – most people only know him as a writer and don’t know he used to DJ.

Paul M Tracy – your 21st Anniversary – that is fantastic – congratulations!

Cofftea

I really have no need, room, or $ for 4oz of the same tea right now, but it has has lemon, cream, and strawberry black teas- adagio doesn’t let me use rose:(

Jaime

I’m going to have to get this for my cousin. Her wedding is in October; a nice tea set, kettle, and this tea would make a great gift!

Glamorosi

My husband and I have the pretty Wedding Tea tin with 20 sachets. Harney & Sons also offers the tin packaged with a white teapot, two matching cups and I think a pair of honey spoons. A five piece tin is available and it can be personalized (nice for wedding favors).

They also sell the Wedding Tea as loose leaf by the pound – I’m hoping when we’re done our tin we’ll refill it with that, or at least get the bulk bag of sachets (50 pieces).

Jaime

Oh, thanks for the tip! Saves me the trouble of having to find everything!

Glamorosi

Aww, you’re welcome Jaime! :-D

Such a lovely, light cup of tea. I love the smell as I open the bag, and I love how the tea (in the tea bags) is actually pretty. I accidentally heated the water too hot, so after swirling the pot around a bit, I poured a cup into a cold mug (everything’s cold around here these days), then to the actual mug with the tea. Success! Great tea without the high temperature.

Also wondered if anyone had seen this in the NYT: http://www.nytimes.com/2010/01/09/business/global/09tea.html?pagewanted=1&emc=eta1 It’s about the business of tea. I checked here, and didn’t see too many reviews for the company it discusses (Dilmah), but still thought you might find it interesting!

gmathis

Thanks for the link … will be interested to see if the brand creeps into this part of the world. (Probably not; in SW Missouri, Tazo and Republic of Tea are considered exotic.)

Cynthia Carter

I order some staple groceries through a website called Alice, and I have noticed that they carry Dilmah teas. I haven’t ordered any yet, as I wasn’t familiar with the brand, but I think I’ll add some to my next order.

I love Alice, BTW – we live quite a distance from the grocery store, and I don’t like to be constantly making car trips because I’ve run out of laundry detergent or coffee. Shipping is free, and they automatically credit manufacturer’s coupons. And they carry Walker’s biscuits!

Bethany

@Cynthia Carter – I looove Alice as well. Just made my first order this week. I live in the city and don’t have a car, so it’s great for ordering bulk items that I can’t carry, like paper towels. And the prices are so reasonable!

laurenpressley

Neat! I hadn’t heard of Alice before… I use Amazon’s subscribe and save for something similar… but Alice looks like it might offer some other brands!

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!

Sipdown (that wasn’t in my cupboard!).

Yum.

Yum, yum, yum.

I totally cooked the leaves by not paying attention and using almost boiling water. Still, the flavours are awesome. Lemon cake. So good.

This one would be a worthy option to pick up in my next order!

(Of course the H&S site says:
Brewing Time No
Brewing Temperature No
So… yeah.)

this actually smelled like chocolate and rose, and tasted a bit that way too. I appreciate the complexity, but would only drink this once in a blue moon.

Mmmm… the dry bag smells like frosting! That’s a good sign. I was very disappointed to discover that all the teas I ordered from Harney & Sons were artificially flavored. I must have overlooked that on the website when I was ordering! I’m bummed. I’m trying them anyways, of course! Not worth pitching a fit over, but I wish I’d known before I ordered.

I decided to try another tea after my first one did not quite hit the spot. This was the only white tea in the bunch and I wanted to try to get a little less caffeine this afternoon.

I’m not going to lie, I totally bought this because of the ‘Tea for Marriage’ angle. Let’s hope it brings a little luck my way in that regard! I am looking expectantly at my ring finger as I type, hahaha. Oh well, a watched pot never boils! Unlike this tea water, which is more than ready to go.

Mmm… the warm tea smells less like frosting and more citrus-like. It tastes very much like lemon and vanilla, which are not flavors I usually like in my tea but I don’t mind them in this tea. I keep getting caught up on the artificial flavoring thing, though. This tagalong tea tin is beautiful and would be a good wedding favor. If you love vanilla frosting or lemon then this tea may be for you.
