Harney & Sons Tasting Room

In addition to the Flight of Teas sampling being offered, while at the Tasting Room, you are able to select one tea of your choice to sample.  Tough choice!  The two young foreign exchange students traveling with our group were eager to make a selection.  Eero (from Finland) selected Sally's Secret, an aromatic blend of Earl Grey combined with rose petals while Adam (from the Czech Republic) opted for a Ceylon from Kenilworth Garden north of the Dimbula area. 

The tea specialist quickly went about brewing the selections in pristine white taster's cups, using the proper temperature and allowing the tea to steep for the required time.  It's probably a good thing I don't live close by, or I'd be selecting a different tea to sample each day.  Wonder how long it would take to go through their wide assortment of teas?  Oh, but think of the fun!

I can see it the two Nancys (you and me) at the table waiting for their tea. We would have fun! Thanks for giving me a place to go when my English friend comes this year. Hopefully, we will get to have tea with you. I'll e-mail you more later.

Oh, I would love to visit Harney & Sons, but it would be difficult to choose a special tea to take home.

How smart of them to offer to let you sample the teas! And like you, I'd probably want to visit every day if I lived nearby and try them all.
