Harney & Sons Fine Teas

Birchbox Breakdown

It’s far too often that quantity is indirectly correlated to quality. Not so with Harney & Sons—more than 30 years old and three generations strong, the company has always been committed to preserving founder John Harney’s tradition of fine tea. Even as they’ve grown from their original six teas to more than 300, the renowned tea brand’s dedication to its craft has never waivered. We’ll drink to that.

How it Works

This caffeine-free blend mixes rooibos from South Africa with sweet Indian spices of clove, cardamom, and cinnamon—the result is a light-bodied comforting brew with earthy, spicy flavors and a hint of nuttiness.

How to Use

Steep sachet in boiling water according to directions.

Must. Have. More.

I bought this primarily for my hubby, since he loves the flavor of chai but prefers decaf beverages. He enjoys it, but I *love* it. Rooibos and chai are great pals- mellowing each others' stronger qualities and creating a happy balance. Bonus: individually wrapped bags make for easy travel if you like to bring along your favorites on vacation.

Too spicy
Purchased

I only tea I like is Chai so I thought I would like this. Didn't like it. Too many spices thrown in. It was hard to drink due to the taste.

Mmmmhm! who knew I could love this tea THIS much.

Chai tea and I have a complex relationship. I've only found one other chai beverage that I love and this might top the list. It's light and not spicy, has nice floral tones, sweet, and smells as good as it tastes! I can't wait to get more.

chai-tastic

Chai is my favorite tea and this one is no exception. It smells great and tastes perfect. It's been the perfect 3pm winter treat at work!

One of the best Chai teas!
Purchased

This is an amazing chai tea plus it's caffeine free. I tried this tea years ago and I was so happy when I found it while browsing Birchbox. I love chai tea and am pretty picky. Harvey & Son's does a great version and I do like that it's herbal so I can have it before bed and not have to worry about being up all night. The combination of spices is perfect and it taste amazing. So happy to be reunited and will be purchasing again and again! Thank you Birchbox!

It's Okay
Purchased

I was excited to try to this tea, because I absolutely love chai. However, this tea tasted too earthy to me (I tried multiple steep times and sweetness levels). If you like earthy, then you'll love this tea.

sadly unimpressed
Purchased

As an avid tea drinker, I've had many chais and a few rooibos that I've enjoyed. However, this tea tasted like a cough drop to me. The smooth, warm rooibos flavor was there but there was no spice to it. I like feeling my strong chais in the back of my throat but this didn't do anything for me. I might try it again with less water, longer brew time, or double the tea but while that may make it less bland, I doubt it will change the cough drop taste. If someone else does not encounter the same familiar flavor I did, perhaps they could find it enjoyable.

This tea=love

This tea might be one of my new favorites. Perfect spices and tea strength! Tastes great with some vanilla soy milk.
