Well, our temperatures are in the negatives, and that means its time to hit the hot beverages hard. Toward that end, I got some new teas from Harney and Sons recently to give them a try.
A new seasonal tea they recently put out is their 2020 Lunar New Year tea.
It is a black tea with toasted rice, coconut pieces, sesame seeds and caramel and coconut flavor. It is a nice brisk tea with a mild sweetness and a nice coconut and sesame flavor. The flavors are subtle and not exaggerated. This is a very nice tea that I would definitely drink again!
Another of their new black teas is New England Breakfast, which is a brisk black tea with maple flavoring and safflowers. It has a pronounced maple flavor which goes really well with black tea.
And my final new tea is Bamboo. This is an herbal tea, consisting of bamboo leaves. I halfway thought they were being poetic with the name. No. It really is bamboo leaves – straight up!
I just got a sampler pack of this one, because I wasn’t sure how it was going to be. It is different, but I would drink it again. It has a mild grassy flavor and is a tiny bit savory. Interesting and tasty!
