My first Harney & Sons…and I overbrewed it! This tea is a fine crushed blend and a little goes a long way. My “normal” amount of tea resulted in a brew too strong to drink. The immediate resteep was good though. I turned the strong stuff into iced tea. Not bad, needs sugar and maybe a twist of lemon for me…definitely some sugar. The brew was clear and bright, like I expect from ceylon teas, with body of Indian teas (not sure what the blend is, but I’d guess Assam). Not giving a thumbs up or down on my mistake.

I remember when I discovered that there was more to tea than hot or iced. I was given a loose tea sampler (M.T.W.) and a stainless steel tea ball as a Christmas gift many years ago. That was the start of what will be a life-long love of fine tea. I discovered Steepster from a blog entry on the Mark. T. Wendell website…and have, from Steepster, discovered even more fine teas and vendors. I decided to post my thoughts in the hope that others discover a good, fine tea.
