2778 Tasting Notes
Harney loves to send me sample sachets of this whenever they send me tea. They really, really want me to like this!
And, it’s fine, but it’s too mild. The sample sachets have done the opposite of what they expected, making it very clear that I’m not going to buy the full size of this tea.
But it’s easy enough to drink down, so I don’t really mind getting the samples.
I ordered this tea from a company who specializes in skull shaped sugar cubes (Dem Bones on Etsy). I have wanted those sugar cubes for absolute years, and finally committed to them., and a couple of teas to boot.
This is a fairly nice little Darjeeling. The Marigold petals only seem to add color, not any noticeable flavor, but the tea has good enough flavor on its own.
A soothing sort of cup. I had it for breakfast today, but I think it’s going to be an afternoon tea instead.
Earlier in the week I had a cup of this that was, if not enjoyable, at least not terrible. That was a fluke, apparently, as I drank this blend yesterday and it made me feel well.
I used to think all breakfast blends would make me feel a little billious, but this is apparently not true. I feel a bit ill when it’s a bad breakfast blend.
I’m going to have to consider weather I want it to stay in my cupboard or if it will be the rare throwing out.
