287 Tasting Notes
A strong, robust tea. Would work well for a breakfast tea as well despite the afternoon name. Matches summer heat here in Florida. A satchet for the cup at 5 minutes. Buries a cube of sugar so not naturally sweet. Flirts with borderline bitterness. I think next time I’ll try a four minute steep due to that buried in the background.
On a visual note, the collectable tin is lovely.

I couldn’t’ resist some Disney tins and others in a recent Harney and Son sale. If I hate the tea, at least there’s the tins I suppose. I got Mickie, Minnie, Peter Pan, Disenchanted, and Snow White.
I’ve only had one cup of this one. Reached for a satchet for a nightly cup of decaf the other night, not expecting much honestly, but it was surprisingly good. I could taste the hibiscus but it wasn’t overpowering, and the tea was strong with fruity flavors. I was not, as they say, disenchanted. You never know with Harney’s blends, so it was a pleasant surprise
It does say mint is in there, but I couldn’t really sense it other than adding layers to the tea.
This tea is not a bad tea, but it’s not to my taste. It is tannin heavy and becomes a bit more brisk and drying the more I sipped. The sage is interesting and they did a great job with balanced fruits as backnotes – but it flirts with borderline bitterness and it’s not something I find desirable to drink again. Not a keeper, but not an awful tea – some enjoy heavy tannins compared to me.
Says – Tastes like strawberry, ginger, lemon verbana
Feels like: Strawberry field dreams
This tea did not help me sleep but I adored the name and love ginger when done right. Same for lemon verbana. The strawberry makes a nice note – a strawberry tea background touch, not the tart jam. The main ingredient is chamomile, which I am super picky with, but there are many ingredients in this one that definitely balances it out, including turkish apples, fennel, blackberry. Natural licorice root adds some natural sweetness but nothign artificial that licorice tends to do if applied too heavily
Another keeper – this one for “Nightfall” and caffeine free modes
I’m having such luck with my samplers this week!
This tea has mini marshmallows, adorable, roobios with black tea, cocoa and almond with natural chocolate. It turned out to be a very fun chocolate black tea. I have a hate relationship with Roobios but all of this blends together. Delish and will be another keeper!
