Bought it because it smelled so bright and grapefruit in the shop. I love grapefruit! Don’t get any rose flavor. Kinda reminds me of a brisk tea with a weird citrus twist. Not bad. Probably souldnt repurchase. Will likely keep the tin forever!

drank Boston by Harney & Sons

It’s probably safe by now to say I don’t like any of the Harney berry flavored teas. Or the fruity black teas. It feels similar to the back currant, Paris type teas and I’m just tired of that flavor. Doesn’t really taste of cranberries or almonds, just a bit like so many of their other teas. Luckily my sister liked it, so I gave her my tin.

I never found a way to enjoy this one. I gave the rest of my tin to my MIL.

I used to love it but there is some new ingredient they are using that is putting me off. I gave mine away, too. I think there is an artificial vanilla that smells like mildew.

Roxy King

Oh no! Sad to hear it changed, wish I could have tried the original (it seems so many changed have lately). It tastes really similar to the Paris tea, it definitely could be the vanilla that is off putting

drank Earl Grey by Nina's Paris

Got this free when I bought a tea and had tea at Nina’s in Paris. We did a day trip, one day to to roam the city and another for Disneyland Paris. It was a great experience and I would recommend it. We got to try the cake Marie Antoinette ate and they had some replicas of her shoes and nice portraits. Overall its a decent Earl Grey. I enjoyed it. Not my fave but top three.

This tea used to be my absolute favorite Earl Grey when they used a Keemun base. It was exquisite. Then they switched to Ceylon. sobs

Roxy King

Ooh that sounds better for sure! I wonder if thats why they were giving it away, they gave a tin to everyone that bought tea or sat in. Ill have to keep my eye out for an Earl Grey with Keemum.

ashmanra

Fortnum & Mason uses Keemun for their base. I think there are some other companies that do as well, but I can’t recall which ones right off hand!

Roxy King

Thank you! I will definitely be on the lookout since it’s one of my faves :)

drank Big Red Sun by Harney & Sons

Took me a half a tin to love this. It can get really butter if over steepeed or you add too much, I think I had to get the balance right. When steeped perfectly its nice and smooth specially with a little sugar.

drank Apple Cinnamon by Harney & Sons

I was pleasantly surprised by this one. I thought I would hate it but it wasn’t as bad as I thought. I wouldn’t repurchase it though…it almost reminds me of a grain bar. The cinnamon is subtle not super spicy and the apple is muted. It’s Ok

drank Apricot by Harney & Sons

Ive been horrible at checking this site, but wanted to come on here and review the apricot tea. I should
Probably stop trying the fruit flavored black teas from Harney as I never have luck with them. This tastes a little floral, not necessarily of Apricot. Ot just comes across as a flavored tea with flavoring rather than a pleasant tea that is blended perfectly. Was not really a fan.

I haven’t given up on trying more expensive tea’s…. Although I think I should. I just dont seem to have much luck with them. It has an unpleasant taste to me, not sure why! Cant really explain what I found so unenjoyable. Don’t oversteep, it goes really bitter!

This is a review for their regular Darjeeling. I thought I would just love this but its meh. It doesn’t really handle milk that well since its so light. I think thats why I don’t think it is memorable. I need to pow, pizazz, and oomph.

This has been on my want to try list for a long time. I don’t see many tea from African unless they are red bush tea. First time I had this I loved it, can taste all the fruit honey notes, I think subsequent brews I didn’t brew it up right due to time. Worth trying though…
