Harney & Sons “Holiday & White Christmas” Review
Each month you receive a small info sheet with a few details about the tea included and the steeping times.
A few individually packed bags of tea are included as well. I love throwing these in my purse to have on hand, as the tea selections at the coffee shop at school are a bit subpar.
This month’s tea came in an absolutely gorgeous gift box, and it feels like a holiday treat to have gotten TWO tea tins!
The first tea in the set is the holiday tea, which has a black tea base spiced with citrus, almond, clove, and cinnamon. This reminded me of a less-spiced version of chai, so I think the right play is to mix it with some milk and sugar. On its own, it fell a little flat, but that also could be because my steeping water wasn’t hot enough. Overall, though, it was comforting, pleasant, and had a nice mouthfeel.
This is a white tea base with notes of almonds, vanilla, and cardamom with accents of chamomile flowers- when I was making this cup, I noticed there are actual chamomile flower buds in the tea leaves! I think this needed a bit of honey to brighten up the vanilla and almond flavors, as I think the chamomile is the strong player mixing with the white tea. I don’t taste any cardamom at all. This wasn’t my favorite cup of tea, but it wasn’t bad.
The Verdict: Harney & Sons gave us a spectacular December box! Getting two tins of tea in that lovely gift box made me feel like I was unwrapping a present to myself. I also love the tins the tea comes in, as they are both sturdy and secure while being nice enough to leave out for presentation. For $14 I think this subscription would be a lovely gift to the tea lover in your life (or to yourself), and I think the tea itself is high quality and delicious.
To Wrap Up:
Can you get this box if you sign up today? I am not positive but I think the January box is shipping!
Value Breakdown: This box costs $14 with free shipping and I received a gift set that retails for $21. That is like paying $7 for each tin of tea.
