drank Chinese Flower by Harney & Sons
1779 tasting notes

My co-worker has recently discovered Harney&Sons tea thanks to previous tea order that I hid at work to… spread my collection around a bit? Anyway we placed a joint order and grabbed this, and I jumped at the chance to try it.

It’s not something I would order as I’m not keen on green tea. (see what I did there? Bwahaha). Anyway, it’s very bright, citrusy and floral and I think it’s quite enjoyable. I over-steeped it a bit but I can see how a shorter steep would lead to a more balanced blend, and I suspect this would be even better cold-brewed.

I’m happy I was able to try it!

Tea: I just started drinking loose tea in the fall of 2012, and once I started I had to get more and more and try ALL THE TEAS. Joining Steepster made this worse/easier.

So far it seems that I prefer unflavoured black teas, although I still drink a few that are flavoured each day too. Oolongs, greens, puerhs and white teas are all very good, but I just don’t crave them as often.


Me: Ok. Random things. I like animals, I have a little girl and a devoted bf, two cats, and … I’m a geek. I like Lord of the Rings, Sherlock, Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, Supernatural, fandom!, pen&paper RPG’s, online RPG’s, video games, silly internet memes, puzzles and a bunch of others things! I taught myself to knit and I’m considering crochet but I need to make time for all these things!

I keep trying to learn languages on Duolingo and failing. I’m currently failing Esperanto. :P

1-50: Bleh.
51-64: It’s ok.
65-75: It’s good.
76-85: It’s very good. (Buy 1oz+)
86-100: Amazing. (ALWAYS re-stock)
