Taste Of Tea : : White Christmas Tea From Harney & Sons
Seasons Greetings and Happy Holidays fellow tea drinkers! I hope youre having a splendid week and enjoying the holiday season. With the Christmas holiday just around the corner, I thought the White Christmas Tea from Harney and Sons would be a good choice for todays Taste of Tea entry. The version I purchased is actually the bagged version, making this my first post with a bagged tea. I picked up a tin of 30 sachets of this tea a few weeks ago at my local Barnes and Noble they had these tins on sale for 2 for $15 at the time so I picked up this tea and one other to try.
This tea came in an attractive tin.
Ingredients: handpicked white tea, cardamom, natural almond, vanilla and cardamom flavors, white chamomiles
Dry Tea: The scent of the tea wafted out of the tin when I opened it and was quite strong. It was kind of sweet and definitely had a wintery spice character, mostly from the cardamom I think. However, some of the vanilla came through as well.
The tea bag was one of the nicer pyramid tea bags.
I went ahead cracked one open to have a better look at the contents.
Preparation: For this tea I more or less followed the directions on the tin: infuse in less than boiling water for 4 mins.
- Current Price: $10 for a tin of 20 sachets
- Texture: astrigent
- Flavor Notes: wintery spice
- Finish: sweet, touch of bitterness
