Our Review
This is another version of the BLT (British Tea Legacy) Ceylon & India. It is the most elegant, which is fitting.
Dry Leaves The golden and silver tips brighten up the predominating dark brown leaves of this blend. It is a blend of New Vitankande and Golden Tipped Assam.
Liquor A light brown liquor.
Aroma The aromas are honey with some undernotes of cocoa and apricot.
Caffeine Level Caffeinated
Body Since this is a blend of two teas with good body, it also is full bodied.
Flavors The cocoa notes blend with honey aromas from the Assam to create a special tea.
Brewing Time 4 to 5 minutes
Brewing Temperature 212° F

Brigitte's Blend

This tea is named after the mother of three of the Harney grandchildren and the wife of Mike Harney. It is an elegant mixture of silvery Ceylon and golden Assam. Like Brigitte, this blend is perfect in many situations.

Good even without milk and sugar
Average Review:

This is one of the few black teas I've had (and I'm a bit of a tea snob) that's completely drinkable without added milk. I served it to a group of people who insisted they didn't like tea, and half of them went away converted.

Light and Delicate
Average Review:

I agree with the response re: astringency. This tea will not stand overbrewing. I bought it for an afternoon tea, but I have found it to be too light to withstand milk and sugar. Upping the tea to water ratio or increasing brewing time causes bitterness. On its own and brewed lightly it is delicate and floral.

Lovely Tea Blend
Average Review:

One of our favorite of the Harney Blends -- a special treat. I serve this to guests for afternoon tea and receive many compliments. I prefer it, though, with the merest pinch of sugar and a dash of milk.
