The Cleanse

The Cleanse from Harlow Tea Company. . . .

I am generally skeptical of any tea that claims a detoxifying effect or special health benefit, other than ginger for its actually proven anti-inflammatory properties. However, I like that the description for this tea doesn’t promise any magic results. I also like that it has dandelion root; I just enjoy the roasty, robust flavor of dandelion root. So I was willing to give this tea a try when I received a sample. The dry leaf smells like hibiscus, dandelion, mint, and houjicha. The scent of the dry leaf is actually the most complex thing about this tea. Made according to Read More

Ooh Peppermint! – Harlow Tea Co.

When I received the Oo’ Peppermint Tea from Harlow Tea Co I first thought, “Oh man, this is going to be another one of those teas that extremely overpowered.” For any kind of peppermint tea the creator of said tea uses the oil from the peppermint plant and you can easily overpower any creation with just a tad over the amount of oil that was intended. But Harlow Tea didn’t depend on oil but instead the peppermint plant itself! Which, in fact, makes for a delightful flavor. But this tea is not just peppermint leaf, its base is actually oolong Read More

Say Aloha from Harlow Tea Co. . . . .

In theory, Spring is upon us. As the weather heats up, it is time to say goodbye to heavier winter teas and say hello or perhaps Aloha to lighter spring teas. So what is a lighter spring tea? Well for me fruity greens come to mind. They are lighter in color and lighter in flavor. And Harlow’s Say Aloha with its strawberries and pineapple and other fruits sounds like a spring tea to me. One misstep I think they took with this tea was using both a hojicha base and hibiscus. Both are such strong ingredients that they wrestle to Read More

Unique Hand Blended Treat from Harlow Tea Co. . #CitrusZing

I was thumbing thru my tea stash recently and decided to dive into Citrus Zing from Harlow Tea. It’s a Black Tea and Yerba Mate blended base. It has other surprises in there as well including lemongrass, orange peel, lemon peel, stevia leaf, tulsi, eleuthero root, myrtle leaf, and tangerine peel. This tea was pretty good. It was a unique flavor combo. I appreciate Harlow Tea blending Black Tea with Yerba Mate and not stopping there but taking it to the next level of flavor with the other ingredients. The stevia leaf threw me off a bit. I’m not overly Read More
