Enjoy an everyday luxury with these diverse & exquisite teas
Tea has been a treasured commodity across the world for centuries but the world of modern day tea has expanded to include a wide assortment of flavours and varieties. I didn't realise the diverse and exquisite range of teas that are available until I was introduced to Harney & Sons teas.
I first tried Harney & Sons teas when they were served at an extravagant high tea at a historic hotel in Perth. I had the Chocolate Mint tea and the White Vanilla Grapefruit tea and they were both absolutely delicious. I loved the gentle vanilla flavour of the White Vanilla Grapefruit tea and the delicate sweet flavours of the Chocolate Mint tea were divine. Since then, I have gone on to enjoy many of the Harney & Sons fine range of teas.
30 years ago, Harney & Sons was founded on a commitment to provide customers with the finest quality tea possible. Today, it is a family owned business, with three generations of Harney's preserving the tradition of sourcing exquisite tea.
Harney & Sons' website is a delight in itself as a rich source of all things tea. They are passionate about tea and want to share their enthusiasm and knowledge to enhance the tea drinker's experience. Their mission is not only to deliver quality tea products, but also to educate the world of tea history and taste. Their website has answers to a full range of frequently asked questions and instructions on how to brew a perfect pot of tea
Their tea comes in loose leaf, bags and my favourite, tea sachets. Sachets are pyramid-shaped silky nylon bags filled with whole-leaf loose tea. This allows the tea leaves to expand fully to develop the full tea taste.
Harney & Sons teas are served in many of the world's finest hotels including London's luxurious Dorchester, the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York and worldwide in the Ritz Carlton's and Hilton's. They are also served at luxury 5 star hotels in Australia but they can be an everyday luxury at home too. You can find a store that stocks Harney & Sons teas near you here or order online from the catalogue.
Who would have thought there was so much to know about tea and the exquisite and diverse range of teas that are available!
