Tea of the (laaaate) lazy dreary Sunday morning here (it was 70F last NIGHT and now they’re saying it’s going to snow today…I can’t take these wild fluctuations!). This one snuck up on me, fascinating. At the front it was a little sandpapery and I thought it’d be like the last few Harney morning blends I’ve tried in that it’d prove a little too straightforwardly rough around the edges (makes sense; I tried all the ones that sounded good and have good reviews first and am now dwindling down to the rest just out of curiosity and Harney devotion). But then at the end of the sip as well as when the cup cools a bittersweet rich smoothness not terribly different from chocolate or bready malt emerges and builds that makes it a rather stunning experience. Harney! You’ve done it again!
