Galanin + Klein Manhattan Black Tea

When I started blogging about tea way back in 2007, I thought I had a pretty good grasp of the available tea vendors. That very year, I went to the World Tea Expo and was introduced to more vendors, and I remember thinking that wow, the interest in tea was really growing. Today, I learn of new tea vendors every week, and I'm happy to try them as fast as time, opportunity, and my budget will allow!

On Monday, I mentioned my weekend visit to Old Mill Antiques in Dallas, where I found a booth selling tea and tea wares. This Galanin + Klein Manhattan Black Tea caught my eye. It was marked half off the regular $12 price, so for $6, this one certainly seemed worth a try. I'm a sucker for elegant packaging.

When I got home and opened it, I thought uh-oh, it's those tiny little bits of tea leaves. But you know what? I loved it! This tea brewed up nice and brisk but not too brisk, and it definitely has sweet undertones ("chocolate notes," according to the jar).  I found on the Galanin + Klein website that this tea is made in Phoenix, Arizona, by a woman-owned business, which I thought was rather fitting here during Women's History Month. I love discovering new teas, and I was extra happy to have discovered this one—and at a bargain price!



  1. That tea sounds "different." I see the words "bold and roasty" on the label, which I think would have kept me from buying it, since it sounds too much like coffee (which I do not like). But it's great that you found it at a bargain price and ended up liking it, too!

  2. Got to love a bargain! I'm glad this turned out to be a good one.

  3. Glad your new tea was good. Enjoy!

  4. I love that you are honoring Women's History Month with a good cup of tea from a woman owned business. I am sure I was at the tea expo that year. Amazing!
