Breakdown of Brands: Harney & Sons




Let’s bring this Breakdown of Brands bandwagon back to America for a while. Mr. John Harney learned his tea ways from a tea connoisseur of London and New York. He began crafting teas in his basement in 1983 which he then distributed to inn guests. He found something bizarre but eye opening, his guests weren’t necessarily coming back for the stay but more for the tea!

This small little business he had going on is now a global operation, “Harney & Sons”, headquartered in Millerton, New York! They employ over 200 people! It is also a family business, giving his two sons, Mike and Paul, a steady workplace.

Two promises made by Harney & Sons:

  1. to deliver the FINEST quality tea with the best ingredients possible
  2. to educate the world of tea history and taste


We sell mostly tea bags from this brand but we also have an iced version! Something we love about Harney & Sons is the EXTREME VARIETY of teas they offer such as Christmas, Green, Organic, Irish Breakfast, Mint, Sencha, Darjeeling, Chai, Rooibos and so many more!
