24 Tasting Notes
I brewed this in my Libre tea thermos using one teabag and it was a bit weak, so next time I will follow the advice of some of the other reviewers and use two bags. The ginger peach combination is refreshing and pleasant. It seems as though it would be a lovely iced tea in warmer weather. This tea seemed to need more body, which maybe will improve when I use two bags. Typically I prefer a fuller bodied tea. It provided me with a nice afternoon drink which made my work more pleasant. Although given the choice between this tea and nice jasmine, I would usually pick the jasmine for my afternoon tea.
I ordered this tea as a Tagalong (5 sachets) from Harneys recently. Even though the reviews were encouraging on their website, when I brewed it, there was a taste that I simply did not care for in my tea. Even though it is supposed to be vanilla, that is not what I noticed. There was another taste that seemed stronger. The description mentions malty, but that would not be how I would describe it. Usually I love anything vanilla, but this is different. It is silky and smooth, but I left half the cup sitting there, not wanting more. My daughter liked it better than I did, but she isn’t exactly begging for a second cup either.
Love this chai! It is delicious either hot or cold. I drink it after supper most nights. It is simply yummy and so aromatic with the spices. The spices seem to be perfectly blended to suit my tastes. I add only a wee bit of sweetner. There is no caffeine so its perfect for the evening without keeping me awake.
Some years ago, my mom received a gift basket with some Harney’s English Breakfast tea included. She gave it to me and I thought it was the smoothest EB tea, with no bitterness. This was before the internet included so much, and I searched off and on for a few years before I found a place to buy it. I have loved it since and it is still my favorite to drink in the morning while at work. It is fairly robust and I brew it about 4 to 5 minutes at the most. Now that I have found Harney’s website, I hope to try more of their teas.
