drank Hao Ya 'A' by Harney & Sons
2271 tasting notes

I ordered the sample of this again – this is my third time! The first time I bought it I thought it was far too strong! I didn’t think I would ever develop a taste for something like this. The second time I thought it was good, with lots of cocoa notes. This time I am not really enjoying it. I added milk and sugar after realizing that it wasn’t growing on me. It was a tad bitter, and I think I may actually have oversteeped it since I was making three pots of tea at once. (Daughters want different tea from each other and me!) I will try it again tomorrow side by side with Hao Ya B and see what happens, and I will be more careful this time!

I am a music teacher, tutor, and former homeschool mom (25 years!) who started drinking loose leaf tea about eight years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens and oolongs.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.

I am also reviewing for Sororitea Sisters now!

My avatar is a mole in a teacup! Long story…
