drank English Breakfast by Harney & Sons
2196 tasting notes

I’m not going to scroll through umpteen years of history, but I don’t think I have ever tried Harney’s EB. Sample handed to me by a friend at work, so that means sloppy and distracted steeping. Very drinkable, but I didn’t get the lovely hay and burlap vibe that I like about Keemuns. Should’ve paid more attention!

This is a disappointing tea for me even though it claims to be 100% Keemun which is my favorite black tea. This is just…not great. I bought it more than once thinking maybe my tastes would change and it would be special to me, but nah.

Burlap in keemun, huh. You’re right.

I finally took a sip once it had gone stone cold and maybe got a hint of a glimmer of the “right” flavor, but not much. S’OK. There’s a nice big packet of good Keemun in my kitchen :)

Somebody asked me once when I became a tea junkie; I think it dates back to college when I needed caffeine for a 7 a.m. class but chose not to do coffee. My favorite teapot is a medium-sized Brown Betty given to me by my Mema; the painted flowers are chipping off, but the size and feel is perfect. I rejoice when I get a morning to brew a pot of loose tea starting with a kettle; not a bag and a hot pot.
