Yesterday my errands took me to a Starbucks located in my local Barnes and Noble bookstore. Fortunately they stock a few of Harney’s special blends. After smelling the Hot Cinnamon and thinking it would be way too much like a cup of liquid red hots (am I wrong?) I decided to try the Pomegranate Oolong, which was a good choice. Oo la la, Loved it. At first it seemed a bit weak but the longer it brewed as I slowly sipped, the better it was. Smooth and delicious and the pomegranate taste was delicate and light. As I ordered a medium size and they used one sachet, in the future I might use two sachets for that amount of water. My preference is for a more robust tea so using two sachets may be the trick. By the time I got home and was still sipping I was wishing I had bought the 30 sachet canister. There are only two places in town that I know of that carry Harney & Sons and both have very limited flavor selections. This is excellent as a hot tea but it seems as though it would make splendid iced tea as well. I have on order already some of the Harney Black Current so hopefully it will turn out to be as good.

Although I have always loved tea, it has only been lately that I have decided to try out various teas in an attempt to learn more about various teas, flavors, and attributes of teas and why I like different teas. My children are grown and I enjoy a full life with work, friends, family, pets, and quite a few hobbies and interests. In addition to enjoying different teas, the health benefits of tea interest me as well.
