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:
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!
