Harney & Sons Boston Loose Tea 4 oz
This Harney & Sons blend is a black tea with cranberry, almond, and vanilla flavours. The Boston blend will be one of your favourite morning brews. It’s strong, yet smooth, and you can definitely taste the underlying tones of the the tart cranberries balanced out with the nutty almonds... and the vanilla, oh, what an aroma. Cozy up with a cup of tea.
Around 5,000 years ago, when Chinese started sipping a delicious, brewed warm drink made from dried leaves and buds, different regions had different names for it. Most Chinese languages, including Mandarin and Cantonese, referred to the plant by a word that is pronounced "chá". But other dialects, including Min Nan Chinese, which was spoken around Fujian, Malaysia, Indonesia and Taiwan, referred to it by a word that sounds more like "te."
Ingredients: Black tea, natural cranberry flavour, natural vanilla flavour, almond flavour
Tastes like... chocolate?

This is quite a nice tea, but very different from what I expected -- my first impression was not the tart cranberry but a rich, chocolatey flavour. Which is surprising, as there's no chocolate in it! I can only think it must be how my taste buds interpret the almond? Anyway, it's good, although I'm not sure if I'll buy it again as it's a little rich and dessert-y for everyday drinking.
A very fruity tea

I received this in the Travel the World Tea Gift Set as a gift. Boston was included along with Paris and Florence. Not my favourite blend but that's subjective as I don't like nutty, fruity teas.
The flavours are quite strong and, for me personally, a little oppressive. I use a separate teapot for this one as the smell lingers for a while. I like the other teas in the set but not this one. I doubt I would purchase again but will finish the tin for sure.
