Serving from 1948 until 1952, the Marine Corps were an enduring commitment for John and his family. Two of John’s sons were officers in the Marines. In 1983, John began his own company, Harney & Sons. He said he was never scared of failure, he thought people would like great tea. This was the start of tea’s resurgence. John became a luminary in the tea world. Always ready to share a cup of tea with customers and competitors. His legacy of fine tea lives on, helping restore the American palate for high-quality teas.
