Sunday afternoon my husband came in from a trip to Barnes and Noble and said that while he was there he'd found me a treat. He said he knew I probably wouldn't purchase this for myself at this time of year but that I'd probably like to have it, and he was right! In fact, I've actually picked up this gift set several times and talked myself out of it!
And though I wouldn't have gotten this set for myself, I was more than happy to get it, because I'm a real fan of both these Harney and Sons Christmas blends. The Holiday Tea is a black tea with citrus, almond, cloves and cinnamon, and it tastes very Christmas-y to me. The White Christmas Tea is a white tea blend made with almonds, vanilla and cardamom, and it is delicious as well. The teas come in those pretty silken teabags that let you see the tea leaves expanding. Although I got a gift of the Holiday Blend last year, and it was promptly consumed, I haven't had the White Christmas tea in a while so my new treat was extra welcome! Have any of you tried these teas, and if so what did you think?
