Harney's Holiday Catalog
Now here's a first. Unless I'm mistaken, this is the first time I can ever remember seeing this type of teapot, a Japanese kyusu teapot, on the cover of the Harney & Sons tea catalog. "Great for brewing senchas, but it will work with any tea," says the blurb. But you know what *I* want? It's that cute little (was it 2-cup?) silver teapot they had a few years back that sold out almost immediately. Ah, well.
If I hadn't bought gifts from so many tea vendors already, I would be inclined to purchase the "White Christmas Gift" on the back cover of the new catalog. This White Christmas Tea is "a blend of Mutan White tea with vanilla, almond and cardamom flavors. The tea is accented with white chamomile flowers." I don't really need any more tea gifts, but I would like some of this tea myself to enjoy over Christmas.
Have any of you tried their White Christmas Tea? I'd love to hear your review. In fact, anyone want to recommend ANY Christmas tea you've tried and enjoyed? I've been perfectly happy with the Celestial Seasonings Christmas blends, and one year I found Stash Christmas Eve and Christmas Morning teabags which I tucked into Christmas cards for tea friends. Anyone else?
