Harney & Sons Diamond Jubilee Tea

One of the things I enjoy about returning home from a trip is seeing if any good mail is waiting for me. This time I had an unexpected package from a blog reader (you'll hear about it tomorrow!) and my long-awaited tin of Harney & Sons' Diamond Jubilee Tea.

The tin contains "black tea with silver tips, bergamot and citrus flavours," and I'm happy you can actually see the silver tips through the Harney tea sachet.

Harney calls this a "bespoke blend," and I must agree! It has a rich, regal taste, an especially classy Earl Grey (said to be a favorite of Her Majesty), and I find it quite the suitable sip for Queen Elizabeth's Diamond Jubilee. If you've tried this tea yourself, what did you think?

What a regal looking tin for this very special tea. When I receieved my shipment from Harney, I brewed a pot immediately. I loved the rich taste of this tea and think Her Majesty would love it too.

I love Harney & Sons - their chamomile tea is my favorite tea of any I've ever tried. I haven't tried this one.

It's does sound like one tea I'd like. I do enjoy Harney and Sons blends and I know this one will not disappoint.

I have a tin of this tea but haven't tried it yet. I'll put it on my list of to-dos for the coming week. My favorite Harney & Sons teas are Valentine, Holiday, Paris, and Tower of London. All are wonderful and reordered often.
