53 Tasting Notes
I can’t believe I haven’t reviewed this one yet. It’s a staple in my tea collection – I always have this on hand. It’s my favorite lemon ginger tea out there. I don’t drink this everyday but when I do it’s several cups at a time. A very relaxing cup and very delicious.
This tea is divine! There is a group of us at work who love this tea, especially during the summer. It’s not as good as my favorite lemon tea – Lemon Soleil by Adagio Tea, but it holds it’s own. I see Tattle Tea no longer offers it. Hoping it’s just a seasonal thing and it will be back soon.
This was delicious and I drank it sooooo fast. Surely a sign of a good tea? Harney & Son’s website is somewhat ambiguous about the history of this tea. It seems to suggest this tea was blended for The Plaza Hotel’s famous restaurant “The Palm Court” in NY and that it’s the preferred tea of choice of the guests there – yet I can’t find anything to back this up on The Palm Court’s website. Of all the samples I ordered from Harney & Son’s this was repurchase for sure! Delicious & enjoyable!
This tea is fine as hell, guuurl. A fantastic blend of chocolate, coconut, vanilla, and amaranth petals. Before even trying it you know just by the smell and look (it’s so pretty!) that it’s going to be one helluva cuppa. A must try for anyone who loves flavored teas.
“Queen Catherine” is a basic black tea with a hint of floral scent, but thankfully none of that came out taste-wise. I added some honey (which I never do) and it elevated it to a whole other level. HOLLA. I really must rethink this whole honey business. An enjoyable cup.
This is a tart, astringent, layered black tea. I found it to be OK – I broke one of my rules and added a wee bit of honey to see if that helped and it worked much better. I’ll finish the sample up, but I don’t think I’ll need to reorder it. I wasn’t impressed that much.
I had really high hopes for the flavored black tea “Boston”, yet this was the only tea I couldn’t finish. Advertised as a nutty blend of almond, vanilla & cranberry, it fails to mention how floral-tasting this tea is. Very. I cannot for the life of me do floral teas. The longer I sipped, the worse/intense the floral taste became. It just lingered longer than anything should on my palate. I ended up giving the rest away. Pity. If floral is your thing, TRY THIS!
