Our Review
Just off the busy shopping streets of SoHo in southern Manhattan, is our shop. People love the relaxing yet sophisticated atmosphere of the shop. The combination of the dark pink walls and woodwork make for an enjoyable experience. This delicious tea conjures up a bit of that experience.

SoHo Blend

We are introducing our SoHo Blend in honor of our new shop in Manhattan. Emeric Harney, the shop's host, came up with this flavored black tea concoction. Our SoHo Tea is a beautifully delicious blend of black tea with chocolate, coconut and vanilla flavors, and amaranth petals.

New Flavoring is Awful! Review by Ivana C
Average Review:
I used to love this tea. Recently I purchased a whole pound of my favorite tea and my first cup tasted "off". I thought perhaps because I was coming down with something my tastebuds were "off" so I tried the tea again when I was feeling better. Same "off" flavor. In fact, I could not even taste the chocolate or the coconut. It tasted more fruity than anything. I called Harney's to inquire about it. I thought maybe they had a bad batch of tea or something. Nope. I find out that they have changed the flavorings in their chocolate teas which results in a fruitier flavor. I have to say...it's awful. I drink black tea because I like black tea and I avoid fruit teas because I don't like the flavors and because they often give me headaches. I am so disappointed with the new flavorings and I don't understand...why fix something that's clearly not broken? Before it used to taste like a delicious coconutty-chocolate candy (without the sugar)...now I cannot even identify the coconut or the chocolate flavors or aromas. It's all overpowered by the off-putting overly sweet fruity smell. Harney's, I'm a huge fan of yours...but this seems like a silly thing to do to the fans of your chocolate teas. So very disappointing. (Posted on 3/21/14)

I was not sure how this would taste, but it blew me away, it's so delicious. I was worried it would taste artificial or strange, but I'm glad I took a chance. It's perfect! (Posted on 6/9/13)
