Flight of Teas! March 31st & April 1st!

Hello again, tea drinkers! This weekend we will be debuting a very special new tea alongside two of our favorites. Our flight of teas for the weekend will be Queen Catherine, our new Titanic tea, and Soho Blend. We have picked these three teas in particular in celebration of the Titanic's 100th year anniversary: Our SoHo tea because New York was the destination of the Titanic, while Queen Catherine represents the port of registry. Come celebrate, remember, and honor the Titanic and its voyage with us this weekend!

This blend, a combination of three Chinese black teas, was created in honor of Queen Catherine of Braganza, who introduced her love of tea to the British. Queen Catherine is featured in the Museum of Tea in Hangzhou, China, making us the only Western tea with this honor. This black tea creates a lovely medium bodied brew, perfect for the afternoon.

This special blend was created as a tribute to the tragedy of the sinking of the most famous ship in the world. Our Titanic Tea is a blend of Chinese Keemun, Indian Assam & Ceylon, and Formosa oolong. In honor of the 100th Anniversary of the tragedy of the Titanic, with encouragement from PH Nargeolet, Chief Excavator in the first discoveries of the Titanic, Harney & Sons is proud to debut this tea that would be loved by so many in that era.

SoHo Blend was created in honor of our new shop in Manhattan, blended by Emeric Harney (the general manager.) This flavored black tea has wonderful notes of coconut, chocolate, and vanilla while its decorated with Amaranth flower pedals. A wonderful choice for a dessert tea, SoHo Blend has become a fast favorite.
