drank Kangaita OP by Harney & Sons
52 tasting notes

The tea makes me think of Harney’s Dorchester blend. It is a brisk and full bodied tea. The flavor is not a malty as Dorchester. Instead, the flavor is citric, flirting with bitter or maybe sour but not quite crossing the line.

The addition of sweetener and cream takes the edge off without off powering the blend.

A nice morning tea. I did try it chilled and in the afternoon and it maintained its heartiness. I think it would make a nice alternative to morning coffee, though I still prefer Irish Breakfast or Harney’s Golden Blend (though the price off Kangaita OP keeps it in the running for another order).

2nd steep was slightly milder but still full of flavor.

Flavors: Citrus, Malt

205 °F / 96 °C 5 min, 0 sec 4 tsp 32 OZ / 946 ML

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.
