Where To Buy: Harney & Sons
We created this blend of three Chinese black teas in honor of Queen Catherine, who introduced her love of tea to the British. We are privledged to have this tea featured in the Museum of Tea in Hangzhou, China. Harney & Sons is the only Western tea company to receive this honor.
Thus far – Queen Catherine – is one of my favorites from Harney & Sons! I think it’s a great tea for mornings and afternoons as well as hot or cold. It’s just one of those black teas that is good to have on hand at all times!
My first impressions of this tea?
Once I first started infusing this tea I could smell a very faint hint of smoke. It’s a deep burgundy brown.
The taste isn’t what I expected and that’s not a bad thing…it’s certainly your typical black tea taste but then I found a semi-bitter/semi-sweet berry type taste at the end of the sip! It was a surprise but I liked it! YUP! The tea description that I read didn’t mention that it had berries in it but I can certainly taste hints on the tongue. And they are subtle, beautiful hints!
