I had this with breakfast today and made a cup for Ashman late this afternoon.
After finding that Salted Caramel Black Tea, another recent release from Harney, was more of an afternoon tea than a breakfast tea, I thought this one might be the same.While it isn’t strong, it is not as subtle as Salted Caramel, either.
This is strawberry and fig but I think it was more fig than strawberry. The flavor is a lovely dark berry one rather than a bright or tart strawberry. The base is not super prominent but sufficiently well balanced. I will enjoy this one, but I think when I want a fruity black tea, Lupicia is the star for me right now.
I will drink it happily and I think I will also try it as a sweet iced tea. It seems to have a Fruits d’Alsace vibe and I loved that one as a sweet tea, so this should do well that way. Ashman said he enjoyed it. I doubt it is a repurchase for me, though.
