Three cheers for the sample pouches from Harney and Sons! I love that I can cheaply add a few very good sized samples of a tea I haven’t tried yet, and I’m mad for the sensible packaging. A resealable sample pouch? Count me in. Especially when the samples are generous enough for a few cups.
I’ve heard good things about this one, so was very eager to get my hands on it.
I’m enjoying this. Its a subtle fruity flavor, with a lovely aroma. I imagine this would be spectacular on a cool spring morning.
Its enjoyable now, too. I’m glad I have more to play around with.

I finally bought this one about a month ago. I love it!

drank Paris by Harney & Sons
2070 tasting notes

After months of no tea buying, I finally snapped and ordered a ton of teas. Heh, eeek!
But I am optimistic, and wanted to get some of the autumnal flavors in, getting an early start on that, so I grabbed up some beloved fall flavors, and also a few classics.
And, in my cupboard, Paris is a classic. Its fruity, without being a fruit salad, and a seasonless flavor.
I am very happy to have it back in the cupboard! And now, on to yoga.

So tempted to do the same. But I SWORE I would wait until October to do my fall/winter ordering.

Rosehips

You are strong! I gave in to temptation almost at once. Ah well….

gmathis

Must…stay…strong…waiting…until…I…get…the…scraps…drunk….up….!

Paris is very good. Have you ever tried Harney’s Tower of London? Very similar except the vanilla is replaced by honey. Very yummy too.

Rosehips

I love Tower of London! I wish they sold it in smaller sizes in the leaf, though.

ashmanra

Rosehips – they used to sell most of their teas however you want if you call the store! I think you can call Soho or Millerton. I used to do it now and then.

drank Boston Blend by Harney & Sons

This tea was, perhaps, a mistake this morning. Not because its bad! It reamins delicious! But because I have an upset stomach, and maybe a black tea was too much this morning?
Ughh. At least its Friday?

drank Celebration Tea by Harney & Sons
2070 tasting notes

Do you ever get to that point when you’re just so excited about almost being through a tin of tea that you don’t know if you enjoy it anymore.
I’ve reached that with this tea. I still retain a generally favorable opinion, but not overwhelmingly good.
And I’m so close to a sipdown! Eeee!

Nichole/CuppaGeek

I was just telling my fiance this the other day. Tea was ok but I was more excited to throw away the packaging.

Marzipan

I’m sort of that way about all of my Harney teas at this point.

I am so ready for fall. And the fall collections are starting to come out! I’m excited.
The weather is refusing to cooperate, of course, but still. I am dreaming about my sweaters, and this, one of my favorite autumnal teas, helps with the fantasy.
Its been a serious day at work as well, so a beloved tea was a great tea to start off with.

Teatotaler

Another fall fanatic! Hoorah! Not long now. Driving home from work today here in dear Old Virginia, I actually spotted a few Sugar Maples (My favorite tree) with tiny bits of red and orange foliage. I well understand the sweet anticipation of autumn! :) I must give Boston Blend a try this fall season.

Where I live, the temperature next week is supposed to go above the 90s. Yeah, it could be worse (cough California cough) but it’s the first week of September :<

gmathis

We’re just north of the Ozarks…I just want to sit at the edge of a lake and watch the leaves change on the hills. For two months. And not come back. (Until winter, in which case, I need my blankie and rocking chair.)

Is it cold yet? Weather report says 95, so no. Grrr.
This weekend I went with some friends to see HMS Pinafore, which I’d never seen before, and is deeply silly, and Mr. Holmes, which was a really good movie.
Makes Monday all the harder, after such a fun weekend. Boo, Monday!
But so far its been pretty productive, and I always enjoy the first pot of tea of the week.
I’m really going to miss this blend when its gone, as, alas, it is no more. Its a wonderful winter tea. Perhaps I should pause in drinking it until its cold again?

I am working my way through my stash of this, and am always hopeful that its going to be better than it is.
My hopes are now, as I move to the bottom of the tin, that I’ll get more tea, and a bit less flotsam and jetsam. I love additions to tea, and like floral, but this is just too much. Too many addtions! And they don’t seem to be helping. Frustrating.

First cup of the day.
I can never quite make up my mind on this one. Sometimes it brews up to something exceedingly pleasant, with a fruit pastry quality, and sometimes it seems flat.
Today, I’m pleased to say, it was pleasant! A good start to the day.

I got to sleep in a bit today, which was glorious, and I had a leisurely breakfast, a pot of tea and raspberries with a bit of vanilla infused sugar dusted over top.
Ha. Delicious and relaxing.
With my air conditioner fixed I am in the seventh heaven, and happier than a clam. Bring on the tea!

My air conditioner is fixed! Oh thank goodness, there was a while there I was convinced death was upon me.
So, tea!
Today this was distinctly like a floral earl grey. Not bad, but it didn’t leave much on an impression on me. Ah well.

Maddy Barone

Holy crap I think I would literally DIE without A/C. Glad yours is up and running again.

Fjellrev

Yay, glad it’s fixed now!

I love tea! I confess that I was a hot chocolate lover for most of my life, but recently a switch has gone off in my brain, and suggested that I might just love tea. And I do!
I’m a bit of a novice, but an enthusiastic one, and am happily sipping new varieties all the time.
I love vanilla, fruity, and caramel flavors, and cant wait to try more.
