Harney & Sons Fine Tea Review - Masterful Blends, Aromatic, Bold Flavors, Transport

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

Opening the canister to any Harney & Sons Fine Tea and one will immediately be taken in by the aromatic fusions of fine tea leaves, blended together to create specialty brews guaranteed to transport with each flavorful sip.

Having received an assortment of the master blends the fragrant single seamed sachets, combine unique flavors which are labeled for the brisk taste and if the particular blend contains caffeine.  

The flavor profiles Peppermint Herbal, Hot Cinnamon Spice, English Breakfast and Paris, which for me held the most intrigue, are from the classic collection. Each canister holds 24 sachets.

Sampling the Paris blend, it had pungent blend both before and after adding boiling water. Directions for the perfect cup are included, including single cup brew time per mug size, and although not added, I found the boldness of flavor lasted through more than one use and tastings were held in full size, 20oz standard coffee shop paper "cups" and not traditional tea cups or mugs.

The flavor on cup three was weak. So, for someone who enjoys a bold, flavorful, caffeinated tea, the Paris blend holds up and provides the same quality, taste, flavor, scent through at least two of the larger paper "cups."
