Paris from Harney and Sons

Style: Miscellaneous Blend – Region: Blend

80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Sep. 15th, 2021

Harney's Paris blend is an interesting and likeable variation on the Earl Grey formula. In addition to bergamot, this has vanilla, black currant, and caramel flavors added to black and oolong teas. It makes for a sweet and festive tea that goes well with milk and sugar.

Harney & Sons Yuzu Sencha from Harney and Sons

Style: Flavored Green Tea – Region: ?????

60 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Jul. 5th, 2021

This is a light sencha with a little fruit flavor to it. Yuzu is similar to lime, but this did not have a strong citrus taste. I bet it would be good iced. A pleasant tea.

Palm Court from Harney and Sons

Style: Black and Oolong Blend – Region: Blend

50 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 4/5
May. 11th, 2021

This has a hoity-toity description, claiming that it is the "beverage of choice" at the Palm Court in New York City's Plaza Hotel. I actually went there once, several years ago, and had a cup of tea, which I don't remember as being anything special. Despite the pedigree, this is a fairly ordinary cup of tea - it is s...

Feb. 13th, 2021

One of my co-workers has been quaffing this tea with devoted fervor for a few months since I introduced him to drinking any tea. In turn, he gave me some of this. Knowing how much Harney tea tins cost even at Target, I wouldn't have bought this on my own, but it's not bad to try for free. I based the value on the kn...

Chamomile (Sachet) from Harney and Sons

Style: Pure Chamomile Tea – Region: Egypt

30 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 1/5 Value: 2/5
Jan. 3rd, 2021

The only other reviews so far give it 90 and a 100 points, so it looks like this is a contrasting view. I found it to be both a little bitter and bland, without much floral flavor or aroma. I got a sachet of this as a freebie with another order, so they may have been giving away some out-of-date product.

Holiday Tea from Harney and Sons

80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Dec. 3rd, 2020

This was another good value tea offered by Harney & Sons. Hats off to their tea blenders, that is an area they seem to excel in - taking mediocre teas, adding to them, and making them into something better. This seems like a cheap Chinese black tea that is nicely spiced up (with citrus, almond, clove, safflowers, and...

All India from Harney and Sons

Style: Black Tea – Region: Blend

70 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Dec. 2nd, 2020

This is a blend of black teas from Assam, Darjeeling, and Nilgiri. The first 2 I am pretty familiar with, but the latter not really. As the name suggests, it is an all purpose black tea. For me it works best with some kind of milk, but it is decent with lemon also. One reviewer on their site drinks it plain, so I t...

Chai Hara from Harney and Sons

75 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Dec. 1st, 2020

This seems to be an inexpensive Chinese gunpowder tea perked up with some spices - cardamom, cinnamon, nutmeg, coriander, fennel, ginger, and artificial flavorings to be exact. The resulting flavor is light but good, and the price is reasonable. Interestingly, they do not recommend preparing this chai in the traditio...

Nov. 15th, 2020

A delicious, fragrant and strong-brewing decaf sachet. I take it plain but could easily add milk and/or sugar or sweetener if desired. So comforting. Not too expensive - nice tin and sachets.

Feb. 7th, 2020

I suspected something was wrong with the quality (or lack thereof) of this tea when I opened up the tin and there was no scent. (Side note: The best by date isn't for about 2 years, so that's not the issue.) Some teas have a very, very light scent, though. So, I tried to suspend judgment and brewed a cup as the packagi...

Very pale yellow liquor, delicate flavor. More aroma than taste for me. Tasty, but a bit too subtle for my old palate

Jan. 23rd, 2020

I had this tea at a local restaurant (in a bag) and got 2 cups out of 1 bag - even though the restaurant offered me a second bag. It had a slight grassy note but also a pleasant roasted flavor vaguely reminiscent of a barley or genmaicha. I really enjoyed this tea - hot - no lemon - no dairy - no sweetener.

The scent of this was delicious. The scent of the tea after brewing was delicious. But, there wasn't much to the flavor. At the end of the cup, after the tea had cooled, the notes sat on my palette better. But, something about the notes bypassed my palette when the tea was hot. This might be good as an iced tea. But, a...

Dec. 24th, 2019

Let me start by saying that I generally don't like flavored teas at all. Most of them taste artificial to me, the rest don't taste like tea and because I love the taste of tea, I'm left dissatisfied by them. But, as you can see, I gave this 80/100, so I was quite pleased with it. I was surprised not simply because of m...

Style: Earl Grey Tea – Region: Blend

85 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Dec. 23rd, 2019

This smells and tastes like some halfway point between Bigelow Earl Grey and Twinings Earl Grey. With Bigelow, the bergamot note is strong and pointed and the tea has a more earthy taste. With Twinings, the bergamot note is more gentle and the tea has a more woody taste. With Harney & Sons Earl Grey, the bergamot note ...

Jun. 5th, 2019

I purchased Harney and Son's Organic Jasmine along with their Dragon Jasmine Pearls and their Jasmine (non-organic). I brewed all of them according to Harney and Son's directions (1 tsp tea to 1c water at 175F for 3 min).

Organic Jasmine has the least jasmine aroma and flavor of the three. That's not to say it isn't...

I ordered this tea loose and brewed it exactly to Harney & Sons directions (1 tsp per cup at 175F for 3 minutes). The aroma is sublime. The color is very light golden straw. The flavor is soft, fragrant, not bitter at all. Compared to Harney and Son's "Jasmine" and "Organic Jasmine" the Dragon Pearl Jasmine is more sub...

Mmmmmmm...delicious from the first dry-bag sniff through the cup and even in the aftertaste! Finally again, for only the second time in my experience: a coconut-flavored green tea that really is coconut-dominant, and since I enjoy coconut a lot, that's a good thing.

The best part is that the coconut flavor asser...

Aside from the blackcurrant, the flavoring in this is rather subtle. The tea base is moderately rich and has a darkness in color as well as taste. It is almost a bit too tart but that's where the faint vanilla and caramel rescue it to give it some sweetness.

It's a good example of blending done well with flavoring...

I really like this tea! It’s a delightful sort of spicy with hints of sweetness, even without sweetener. I don’t always enjoy orange flavor in tea, but in this case it blends nicely with the spices, the main one of which is cinnamon with a bit of cardamom. Overall, I agree that it is reminiscent of red hots. It als...

A colleague left this on the "freebie" table at work, so naturally I indulged some. One of the best green teas I've had so far, this offering competes well with a couple of bagged generic (unbranded) green-tea specimens containing a little matcha powder that my daughter brought back from her honeymoon in Japan.

Somehow I let this sample that I bought slip through the cracks and only am trying it now. Unfortunately, it's no longer for sale. A shame, because I thought it outstanding!

The dry leaf is quite beautiful, short, curly leaves with lots of golden tips, and has a complex and fascinating fragrance, sort of fruity, a r...
