drank Indian Nimbu by Harney & Sons
616 tasting notes

My friend gave me a sample of this, I’d never heard of it before but then I saw someone else’s review and realized it sounded like something this EG fan would enjoy. Sooooo I made it tonight.

I DID enjoy it, though it reminded me a lot of another tea. At first I thought maybe it was Paris, (minus the berries) but it just hit me right now – it’s Kusmi’s St. Petersburg.

Which he makes sense, because I love that.
And it makes me happy because I was regretting not ordering this with my latest H&S order that my relatives will bring me in July, but since I already own a similar one, it’s all good!

I would suggest EG fans give this a try though :)

I really liked this one earlier today…mmmm.

Yeah I think you’re the reason I had to try it! :)

It has different base than St. Petersburg has Chinese black, Indian Nimbu is Darjeeling which could be tricky. I love them both.

Honestly I’m not sure I’m at a place where I could notice a big difference between the bases

Hello!

I love tea. I love my baby daughter, my husband, my dog Wally, Netflix, shopping, and tea. Some other stuff too, but these are the most important!

Some favourites -

Butiki teas in general, I love how the flavours are subtle and not fake tasting and don’t overwhelm the tea base. Trust that I will be dramatically mourning the loss of this company!

Harney and Sons, Teavivre, Whispering Pines and Mariage Freres are some more tea companies I appreciate. Along with Davidstea as it was the ‘gateway drug’ to my tea addiction. Though I’m mostly over it now, I’ve definitely moved on from the artificially flavoured teas and am trying more quality straight teas!

My ultimate goal is to try as many French teas as possible – and to finally find a source in Canada for Mariage Freres so I can buy Wedding Imperial, and Black Orchid for sure.

I would like to try any Taiwanese Assams that exist in the world!

Also continuously on the hunt for Fauchon – La Naissance.

When I rate, it goes like this:

85 -100 = WIN! awesome, I love this and keep it on hand
70 – 85 = pretty darn good but I don’t NEED to own it
55 – 70 = not necessarily terrible but not a tea for me!
30 – 55 = missed the mark as far as I am concerned. Wouldn’t drink it willingly.
0 – 30 = I likely won’t rate this low very often, so if you see it, consider the tea a great big FAIL and probably disgusting.
