First question for myself: Why drink tea when it is 30 degrees Celsius out?
Answer: Harney and Sons.
This particular tea has been sitting on my wish list for a tad too long. So following an afternoon at the office, I braved an arduous bus trip (who am I kidding, I’ve survived 10-hour Greyhound trips) to East Vancouver to pick up this baby, along with a second box of Clippers White Raspberry.
Classy box aside, this is positively the most deliciously-scented tea I’ve had the fortune to come across. I followed the instructions on the box and steeped for 5 minutes (well, 7 to be exact), and the result was delicate but flavourful. Another 5 minutes of steeping and I had myself a strong black brew. DO NOT OVERSTEEP!
Given the steep price (slow clap) of the box, silk sachets and all, I’ll probably save this for special occasions and stick to Twinings for the daily cuppa.
Flavors: Floral, Fruity
