This wonderful tea was concocted by Emeric Harney, our third generation tea blender. He also is the host of our shop in SoHo. It appears that he has good memories of the Holidays in snowy Connecticut. And we are all beneficiaries of those memories. Many people enjoy this tea, someone said the blend was pure genius. One friend suggested to drink it with Ameretto.
I got this sample back in February, when the weather was still chilly. For some reason I'm only sampling it now, in early April. I like it! The whiff of almond saves it from being just another sweet, pretty tea. It makes me think of cambric tea, which was weak tea heavily diluted with warm milk and sweetened, giiven mainly to children I believe in times past. But White Christmas is not insipid despite its sweetness. It's simply gentle, and reminds me of soft Spring days and delicate flowering trees. (Posted on 4/2/16)
This is my all time favorite tea. It's warm and comforting, with just the right amount of sweetness. I add a touch of raw sugar and milk. This is a tea that I have to have on hand at all times. (Posted on 5/12/14)
My boyfriend's sister bought me this tea for christmas this past year. I am one of those people who buys upwards of $50-$60 worth of different kinds of teas at a time, and this one will always have a permanent spot in my tea cabinet. (Posted on 3/30/14)
This tea is one that I would drink all year round. I absolutely loved it, but I wish that the loose version would come in a 4oz or 7oz size. A pound is too much and the sachets occasionally tear, so I end up putting the tea in a strainer anyway. (Posted on 1/8/14)
I bought a can of sachets 2 years ago at Barnes & Noble on sale after Christmas. I couldn't believe how good it was and it actually introduced me to Harney & Sons teas. I wanted more but couldn't find it after Christmas. That's when i discovered all of the other delicious teas you carry. I'll never go back to Celestial or Gevalia! (Posted on 12/6/13)
