Saturday Tea at Harney & Son's SoHo
He opted for the Choco Nut, a flavored black tea, along with a wedding almond and peanut butter macaroon. I selected Scent of the Mountains, an unflavored sencha green tea, as well as a lavender and matcha macaroon. Jason did quite well with his selection. It was very chocolaty and paired perfectly with his macaroons. I've had Scent of the Mountains several times before and it's a sweet, vegetal and comforting cup of tea. The staff here is friendly and attentive, but a little harried.
In trying each other's teas we discovered that Jason absolutely hates sencha. I'm still trying to put my finger on what is that causes his disdain but I believe it is the grassy element. So far he has not been a fan of any floral or grassy teas that he has tried. He does enjoy most black teas and he has discovered a love for Darjeeling and Chai. Tea will never be a passion for him as it is for me but it is nice to be able to share a pot of tea from time to time. Does your significant other indulge in tea with you? How do their tastes differ from yours? I'd love to hear about it!
