Harney & Sons Birthday Tea

I’m sure that all you tea enthusiasts out there have heard of Harney & Sons Tea.  You may have purchased a cup at Barnes & Noble or treated yourself to a tin while shopping at Crate & Barrel.  The company is a respected tea purveyor throughout the United States, the UK and elsewhere.  The company sells over 200 varieties of tea.  To see their website click here.

P8271874My recent order included a new favorite, Bangkok flavored loose green tea and something I have yet to try, Citron Green tea bags.

P8271875My order also included a signed tin of this Birthday Tea.  It was created to celebrate the 80th birthday of founder John Harney (Master Tea Blender).  It contains fruit and berry flavors (raspberry, blueberry, pomegranate) and flowers (marigold, cornflower) as well as other ingredients and brews a crimson cup of decaffeinated tea.

P8271878This is a special signed tin.  I love Mr. Harney’s teatime drawing under his signature.  Well, I know what will be steeping in my teapot the next time I feel in a celebratory mood.

I would love a signed tin from John Harney, he is such a dear man. I have been graced by a couple chats with him on the phone this week and just loved it. I just finished off some Harney & Son tea called Breakfast Supreme, a nice morning tea.

OK, I knew I might regret not ordering that birthday tea ... now I definitely do! You were so smart to get this -- love the drawing!

Wonderful selection of teas. Harney's Citron Green is our favorite green tea. I'm curious how you like it.

Kimberly,

I've really been enjoying the Citron Green Tea. It has a lovely fragrance and is very smooth with no astringency. I'll be buying this again.
