Victorian London Fog by Harney and Sons...

As a huge fan of Harney & Sons Fine Teas I'm always checking out their site for new and interesting variations of my beloved camellia sinensis. I tend to lean more towards British notions when it comes to my teas, so when I came across a fairly new tea blend on their site with the name "Victorian London Fog" I was immediately intrigued. My interest was further piqued when I read the details section:

"This blend evokes the aroma of a London Fog, with hints of vanilla and lavender blended with bergamot"

So right off I'm thinking "this wil be a sweeter take on a traditional Earl Grey with a high probability of strong floral notes from the lavender". Conceptually that was something that really appealed to my personal tea palate. I picked up a 4 oz. tin (see below) and was not disappointed.

This is a very good tea. Flavor wise? When taken with some milk and a bit of raw sugar the taste is pretty similar to Earl Grey Macaroon cookies I've had in the past. If the idea of that appeals to you I recommend picking up a tin of this. Its very good!

Some long overdue spring cleaning...

All, Sorry I've been silent on the blog front for a while. Been really busy with a lot of projects and such. I've gone through and cleaned up a few things, fixed some broken links and enabled full HTTPS support (update your links). Also I've got a ton of great ideas for a new series of posts (geared around a number of new MDT, SCCM and Windows 10 initiatives I've been involved with recently) that I hope to begin writing up shortly. So much to discuss! More to come so stay tuned!
