If you're a big tea connoisseur, you probably already know the high quality and traditional and contemporary flavours that Harney & Sons has to offer. However, if you're new to tea and you've been looking for quite some time for a tea with a wow effect, you may want to try one of the ones they offer to you. A curated selection of consumer's most coveted flavours: Hot Cinnamon Spice and Paris, Citron Green, Jasmine and Peaches and Ginger, and some of the traditional Peppermint Herbal and English Breakfast is available to sip on while chatting with a friend or writing your paper in their spacious and "quantum" environment.
Now, if you're wondering, what makes this Hot Cinnamon Spice tea so special, here is a bit of a background story. First, we must start with the fact that Harney & Sons are world-recognized Master Tea Blenders with dozens of awards in the tea industry and the only western company to be presented at the Museum of Tea in Hangzhou, China. Their mission since the beginning was to offer the finest tea in the world at a price that makes it an everyday luxury. Hot Cinnamon Spice is a great example of this. One of the oldest flavored tea blends, John Harney, Founder of Harney & Sons, developed it in the beginning of the 1980s. Over the decades its popularity has only grown, and now it is the most coveted tea. It is an assertive 100% Chinese black tea with three types of cinnamon, orange peel and sweet cloves. This tea will pick you up and take you to another planet. Its complex flavours make it a great dessert substitution even for those who cannot eat or drink anything with sugar.
Harney & Sons Hot Cinnamon Spice along with other curated teas is now available for purchase in the form of loose leaf tea tins so that you can enjoy the flavours at home or buy it as a gift. 4 oz tea tins make up to 56 tea cups (2 grams per cup). Where to find it? Right behind the counter at Quantum Coffee - 460 King St W, Toronto (on the northwest corner of King and Spadina).
