Default Harney Sends Stuff

A few months ago, maybe more, someone in this group mentioned to me that
Harney's has a panyong congou. I ordered it, and while it's kind of expensive
by the standards I'm used to paying for chinese blacks, it's entirely
respectable and tastes pretty much the way I'd hoped. So I am happy with that.

In addition, though, they sent me a sample of their Paris tea, and it seems
to me like the Paris is trying to taste like Kousmichoff's _Prince Wladimir_
tea. They don't quite make it, though, the citrus flavours and the spice
flavours don't come together in the same way and it winds up with something
a little reminiscent of bubble gum. But it was a nice try.

"C'est un Nagra. C'est suisse, et tres, tres precis."
