Steeped it a longer than last time, and enjoying it more. The lemongrass is more prominent now, and so is a floral element I missed out on before. I’m surprised the rose hips aren’t making this more tart, but pleasantly surprised as I’m really liking the balance between sweet and sour in this one.

Are Demmer’s teas something you purchased overseas, or is there a place in the USA that you know of that sells them? So many of the flavors sound wonderful. I googled them but just got a site in German/Dutch that I couldn’t read.

I have not seen them for sale in US shops, unfortunately. I picked up this latest bunch during a recent visit to their main store in Vienna. I looked at their website and put together a pretend order to see what their shipping fees were like – actually not too bad. If you don’t have a German-speaking friend willing to look through their site with you, it might be worth using a website translator like translate.google.com to decipher it. Just tried this and it seems to work.

However – just noticed that the prices that come through when you use Google translator are not correct – hover your cursor over the prices in the listing to see the actual cost.

Thanks for the tips. I will try the translator. Off to take a look!

Grandma introduced me to tea as a kid (lipton with milk and sugar; a bit poured into the saucer to cool it down and then sipped from there), and I’ve never looked back. Still have a slight preference for teas that go well with milk (or even better, cream) and sugar, but since Grandma’s day I’ve branched out to appreciate green and white teas, rooibos and pu erh. Absolutely love Mariage Freres!
