In honor of National Iced Tea Day on Sunday we wanted to highlight American tea company Harney & Sons in our National Treasures post this week. Founded in 1983 by John Harney, the still family-run business based out of Millerton, NY has grown to include around 300 different blends and organic bottled tea, too. Some of our favorites include Harney’s first flavored tea Black Currant, which has bold fruit and berry notes, and their best-selling Hot Cinnamon Sunset, a blend of black teas, three types of cinnamon, orange peel, and sweet cloves. Summer house guests take note: their lovely tins are the perfect go-to hostess gift—we keep them even after the tea is gone as they can be repurposed into rather fetching flower vases:
The folks at Harney & Sons were nice enough to send over this recipe from their Tea Cookbook for a yummy cocktail that’s perfect on a hot summer day. Cheers and enjoy!
