This tea has a distinctive roasted fragrance. That roasted note is also evident in the first sip of the tea. A dash of sweetener brings out a fruity flavor. If you like smoky, toasty blends this might be one for you. It is not a weak tea, but not the eye opener an Irish Breakfast tea is.

A bit of cream really turns this into a smooth roasted cup. The cream compliments the blend, as opposed to drowning out the flavor. The second cup was made with just a little cream and it too had a smooth, toasty cream flavor.

Going to try it iced in a bit.

A good solid tea. Not as fruity as I thought it would be, but maybe that will come over ice?

Just finished a glass of it iced. Not bad. The toasty flavor still comes through. The ice doesn’t water it down, it just blends it better with a little cream & sweetener. I think this could be a nice change of pace tea in the summer or with a meal. Not something I would keep as a main stay but something to get a sample of once in a while.

Where to start? I am cuddlesmom in honor of the most amazing dachshund/terrier that ever lived (she lasted 19 years, passing away in 2015). Otherwise, I am a history teacher, wife and ardent Bond fan (Dalton being my favorite Bond on the screen).

I dabble in writing romance and suspense, (though the muse has gone on what appears to be an indefinite vacation as of late). I just finished reading A Gentleman in Moscow & have to say what a fun read that was!

As far as tea goes, I have been a dabbler for a longtime but since I recently discovered Harney & Sons in Target, I’ve gotten hooked on it. Since that first tin, I find myself more and more interested in trying new types of tea.

The Harney site, with its free shipping and samples, is a very dangerous place indeed.

As for my ratings, they are based on a standard scale: 100= Flawless perfection, 99-90= Excellent, 89-80= Above Average, 79-70= Average, 69-60= Below Average, 59-below Failing, poor tea IMO.

Irish Breakfast is my black non-flavored go to tea, raspberry has been pushed out by Harney’s Goji Fruit tea as my favorite fruit tea. I am starting to do more green teas and have just ordered my first oolong, so we will see how it goes.
