101 tasting notes

I went for a run first thing this morning, and today is the final day of the Bundesliga season, so I am now watching soccer. An excellent morning so far, so it calls for an excellent tea.

I brewed it western style for just over 4 minutes.

This is so smooth and creamy — no spice to it at all. Slightly astringent but in a good way. I taste cedar and sweet potatoes as flavors.

This is definitely one I savor on special days — even if that “special” day is as mundane as today. Happy Saturday, all!

Flavors: Astringent, Cream, Creamy, Sweet Potatoes

Preparation

Mundane special days are the best.

I also had a nice Saturday; weather was nice, went to car wash with boyfriend for his car, got to spend time with my family as a group for only 2nd time since March 2020 (other time was July 2020), and my soccer team Columbus Crew had an away match – and we won! :D I did not however drink as much tea as I should have.

Not a big black tea drinker but this tea sounds nice – might have to get a sample next time I make an Harney order.

Husband and father. Librarian. Soccer fan.

My tea habits generally depend on my mood and the season but, in general, my preferred teas are black teas, especially those grown in Sri Lanka and India. I will occasionally drink other types, though.

Unless noted in my review, I brew my tea western style and do not use additives (milk/cream, sugar, etc.).

I am definitely not an expert when it comes to tea, so I apologize if my reviews differ from the experiences you’ve had with any of the teas I have logged.

Please feel free to contact me and let me know if you have a favorite that I have to try! :)

My grading for tea:

100: Perfect.

90, 95: Excellent.

80, 85: Very good.

70, 75: Good.

60, 65: Okay.

50, 55: Meh.

40, 45: Not so good.

0-35: Awful.
