53 Tasting Notes
This tea is divine! There is a group of us at work who love this tea, especially during the summer. It’s not as good as my favorite lemon tea – Lemon Soleil by Adagio Tea, but it holds it’s own. I see Tattle Tea no longer offers it. Hoping it’s just a seasonal thing and it will be back soon.
This was delicious and I drank it sooooo fast. Surely a sign of a good tea? Harney & Son’s website is somewhat ambiguous about the history of this tea. It seems to suggest this tea was blended for The Plaza Hotel’s famous restaurant “The Palm Court” in NY and that it’s the preferred tea of choice of the guests there – yet I can’t find anything to back this up on The Palm Court’s website. Of all the samples I ordered from Harney & Son’s this was repurchase for sure! Delicious & enjoyable!
I had really high hopes for the flavored black tea “Boston”, yet this was the only tea I couldn’t finish. Advertised as a nutty blend of almond, vanilla & cranberry, it fails to mention how floral-tasting this tea is. Very. I cannot for the life of me do floral teas. The longer I sipped, the worse/intense the floral taste became. It just lingered longer than anything should on my palate. I ended up giving the rest away. Pity. If floral is your thing, TRY THIS!
