drank Boston Blend by Harney & Sons

On first smell of the dried tea, not sure if this is the tea for me. It smells like black tea with strong almond scent. Not real almonds, but almost like almond butter. Was slightly dissapointed because I was hoping the cranberry would be stronger.

After brewing, there is a tart cranberry scent mixing with the almond scent. And, I don’t know, it is just not doing it for me.

The taste of the tea is actually not too bad. It is a medium black base, there is that almond butter taste, with a sweet/tart flavour from the cranberries.

This is not what I had expected from this tea. I was hoping for a stronger cranberry flavour. Not a bad blend, but certainly not the blend for me.

I am a lifetime tea lover.

I did foray into the world of coffee for a period of time, but I returned to my true love. I still, however, enjoy a good cup of java.

My all time favorite tea is Earl Grey, which I drink every morning, the stronger the bergamot the better. I definitely prefer natural oil of bergamot to artificial flavouring.

I mostly like black and dark oolong teas. My current favs are Fujian blacks, Keemun and Assams, and Wuyi oolongs. I gravitate towards anything with lychee in it. I also drink a lot of herbal blends but am wary of hibiscus. I do not favour mate, or pu’erh tea, although I have found a few blends that I like. (I so badly want to like straight pu’erh tea but it all tastes gross to me. I keep trying though). Rooibos, green and white teas fall somewhere in the middle. I find myself gravitating towards heavily roasted oolongs and teas from Paris/France based companies.

I love iced teas and cold brews.

My current tea goal is to make the perfect cup of chai from scratch – almost there…I think.

I am in love with the whole experience of tea.
