I am very excited to post my first note that is part of….
Mastress Alita’s Sipdown Challenge!
I hope I am doing this right! I have always wondered how you guys knew what to drink and I finally asked the Mastress herself. She set me on the right path!
This is far from a sipdown. Once I tasted this tea years ago I decided that it would probably be one I would always keep on shelf. So even if I finished this tin I would just get more next time I place a Harney order.
Still, it has been neglected for a while and if I understand how to do this, today is National Pear Day and we are supposed to drink a pear tea.
Breakfast was a cinnamon crunch bagel from Panera so this “paired” (ha ha lil pun there) very nicely.
The white base and spices are pretty much perfect for pear. I am always surprised at how much flavor and really lovely body the cup has. Guests tend to love it, even if they are not devoted tea drinkers.
I get more cinnamon than nutmeg for sure, and I guess it is the lear itself that makes this tea round and smooth and silky. The cinnamon isn’t sharp and hot like their Hot Cinnamon Spice, not at all. It is well balanced.
