For my second installment of Feature Friday I had to go with Harney & Son’s Royal Wedding Tea.
I know the requirement is that I love a product all week, but confession here…I’ve loved this tea since July 2013! I drink it EVERY single morning unless I am out and waiting for a new shipment to arrive. In which case I’m probably drinking some other Harney & Son’s tea – *ahem* Paris. Each night I even find myself comforted by the thought that when I wake in the morning I get to have a cup of Royal Wedding. Yes, I am a strange bird. But it’s THAT good!
I used to be a coffee/espresso drinker, exclusively. I was the type that liked her coffee hot and her tea cold. This was all changed when my sister gave me a sachet of Harney & Sons. I’ve been converted. But I guess I should talk about the tea and not just my love of it, eh?
According to the Harney & Son’s website, this tea was commissioned by the Historic Royal Palaces organization and combines Chinese mutan white tea buds, almond, coconut, vanilla, and a floral abundance of pink rosebuds and petals.
Because it is a white tea, it is very mild. It does still have caffeine, but a lower amount than a black tea, which is fine with me. It has a warm almond-y vanilla flavor. I add a tiny bit of agave and unsweetened almond milk to my cup and it is perfect!
I won’t drone on and on about this anymore because I have mentioned it a few times (here and here and I’m sure there are others)…but if you haven’t tried anything from Harney & Sons, I suggest you do. I’ve never been disappointed. They have a good selection of flavored and traditional teas, they are at an excellent price point, and they come in the most beautiful tins!
