Wedding Tea by Harney & Sons is a white tea with a translucent yellow hue. In comparison to other white teas I have sipped, especially ones that are not blends, I would say that this white tea steeps darker. If I were to liken the hue to a tone perhaps more familiar to you, I would say 'apple juice', with more yellow tones.
I love when a tea’s scent makes your mouth water and Wedding Tea by Harney & Sons does just that. I am always a little surprised when citrus and floral scents comes together harmoniously and Wedding Tea blends rose with lemon so deliciously…and I haven’t even taken my first sip!
Steep Temp: 175°F
Steep Time: 3 min.
Wedding Tea without honey is a very interesting and enjoyable sip. The soft lemon note, void of tang or bitterness, takes center stage and tussles pleasantly with a rose note. The lemon wins center stage again at the end of the sip.
Wedding Tea with 2 teaspoons of honey changes its dynamic with vanilla taking center stage, which is followed by the lemon note. The soft rose notes surface intermittently.
SIDE NOTE: I truly enjoyed sipping Wedding Tea by Harney & Sons and took several sips before even thinking to add honey. This is usually one of my tests of “sip-ability”; If I sip a tea and don’t think to add honey then I can really see myself purchasing the tea in the future and sipping it under all circumstances, even when a sweetener isn’t readily available.
