My last Harney order included this sample and my curiosity got the better of me today.
Drank this about 90 minutes ago and my tummy is still gurgling. Could just be that I drank this after having 2 cups of Nina’s Grand Amour and my body is on tea over load but I was also less than impressed with the flavor.
This was my first taste of a tea containing ginkgo, so the taste maybe fine for people that like it.
Someone else mentioned that the citrus flavor was almost and after taste and I would have agree. A grassy flavor seemed to be the min note.
I used the one big bag in the sample and steeped it for 15 minutes in 2 cups of water. I added 6 cups of cold water after ward, just as the instructions …well… instructed.
I tried on its own and with some sweetener (which did bring out more of the citrus flavor) and creme (which makes everything drinkable in my world).
Still have 4 cups of tea left and I am tempted to cut my losses and dump it. The flavor is just too grassy for me.
Maybe after my tummy settles I will give another try.

Flavors: Citrus, Grass, Herbs

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.
