drank Paris by Harney & Sons
1112 tasting notes

I got another coworker hooked on Harney & Sons! :) She placed an order recently, and Paris was one of her choices. She gave me a silken sachet, and I couldn’t wait to revisit with dear Paris!

So, so enjoyable. Berry Earl Grey, with a hint of something to mellow the tartness. Is it vanilla? This is tasting so good sans additions here at work. I believe I was taking this with milk and sugar before, but I am really loving it plain today! It’s like finding an old friend who you grew apart from because maybe your interests diverged, but you ran into them and lo and behold, you are in the same place again and are so happy to resume your friendship! I am looking forward to popping a tin into my next Harney order now that I know this is a delicious tea au naturel.

P.S. My husband is traveling for work, and he was so pleased to have Harney & Sons Earl Grey Supreme silken sachets in his hotel room. It totally made his night last night when he was missing his nightly tea ritual.

I love to cook, bake, read, paint, knit, do needlework, and garden. I need my coffee, but I LOVE my tea. I work at an Art School, and attend a large public university doing post-bac work (my BA is in English). I’m interested in the liminal spaces between art and craft, the academic and the practical, the individual and community, and the old and the new. I’m currently exploring these ideas through the disciplines of education, literature, history, and psychology.

I enjoy writing tasting notes, but have decided not to numerically rate teas as of 9/14/10. For an explanation, see my looooong tasting note about Mountain Malt from the Simple Leaf.

My favorites:
Chinese black teas
A good “milk and sugar” English style black
Earl Grey (classic, and in all variations!)
Vanilla teas (classic, and in all variations!)
Jasmine, Rose, Violet and other froofy, flowery teas!
An Occasional Oolong
Flavored Rooibos
Herbal Tisanes
