Sooo the second time my boyfriend came to visit me, I let him try a Harney & Sons tea-the SoHo Blend, and he loved it. Also this year him and his bro and his bro’s gf came out as a birthday surprise for their mum (my boyfriend and his bro lived in England at the time and his parents live in NY, where he is now), so I sent him a package full of some tea samples I’d wanted him to try for the longest time-I had to get him off of the classic English Breakfast tea with milk. :P He can’t go back anymore! Muahahahahahaha!
Anyway, one of the samples I gave him was Paris, and he loved it too!
So he finally graduated Uni about a month ago and I get to see him on Monday, he’s coming for a short visit-Monday to Saturday since he’s planning to come for this Christmas anyway. Had to place a H&S order for his graduation present. Got him the SoHo blend and The Tower of London-but the 5 satchets little tin. Oh my goodness, When I opened the package I almost missed the tin because it’s so tiny! XD
But anyway, since it’s like Paris I thought he’d like it. (: I just gotta finish a cross stitch for him and then his graduation gift will be complete! :D So excited!
Got three samples with that order. Two were the same old boring teas, like the chai one and the pomegranat one plus an iced tea pouch. This one was the only new one-so I had to try!
And all I really gotta say is that it was minty. Very very minty. Tried really hard to find another flavor or something, but no. It was just a crap load of mint in that mug for both steeps! It wasn’t bad-I mean, I had two cups of it. But it wasn’t amazing either. Was a fine tea, just not something I’d buy or drink again. Kinda a boring tea to be honest :P But hey, better boring than bad!
