There are a handful of people in the specialty tea industry that have set the bar for all of us. It is with great sadness that I heard today that we have lost one of those people, John Harney, founder of Harney & Sons.
I had the pleasure of meeting Mr Harney several years ago. His kindness and generous spirit will be in my mind forever and I would like to send my deepest sympathies to his family in this difficult time.
We have all lost a champion of the industry and I hope that the rest of us can do justice to his memory.
