Holy wow! This one is good.

It is funny becuase I couldn’t find it in the database, only because I forgot what it was called. I made the tea and then came to work. I first looked up christmas tea and that wasn’t it. Then I tried holiday tea and it looked right but there was chocolate in that blend and I would most likely never buy a tea with chocolate in it so I was quite confused. I actually went to my account at the harney site to look at my previous order. Then I figured it out.

There was quite a lack of description on this tea on the harney site when I bought it, so I went in a little blind.

But it is so good. Certainly a holdiay/celebration tea. Not necessarily christmas but it does work for this time of year.

Becuase I couldn’t find this tea on steepster, I have already drank it all and can’t wuite remember what it tasted like, but it was good. There was definitely an almond flavour, cinnamon and maybe some cloves. There was orange citrus flavours. The black tea was moderately bold, great for that holiday tiredness but it was still quite smooth. There was definitely a creamy, vanilla like flavour as well.

So good. I wish I could have more when I get home but it will be too late in the day for caffeine. I will try to post again tomorrow.

This one came in typical harney sachet.

Bio

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.
