10 Tasting Notes

This tea never leaves me unsatisfied. When you open the tin is like you open a box of a eau de parfum. Typical parisian I would say from the way they designed it. Not a lot of smell- i thought I was going to be dissappointed. Infused for 4 min and to my surprise it had such a wonderful taste. It was like eating apples sprinkled with orange juice on top. I drank it 30 min ago and I still have te wonderful taste in my mouth. Very smooth, very enjoyable and zero bitterness.
Unlike so many other teas that have more smell then taste, this one is e opposite, not a particular smell but an amazing taste.

Flavors: Apple, Citrus Fruits, Orange

I love taking this tea while reading a book before going to bed. It’s just so good. I wish I had bought more before I left Europe. I have the tin and the kettle next to my night stand and it is just the best relaxing tea ever…. and it does bring me memories of Fall in Paris…

First time I tried it it was like: ouch, that is a strong bergamot taste. I added some milk and I started to enjoy it more and more. It’s perfect for mornings like 6.am or so…Later then that, I prefer having the earl grey of Dammann Frere. I have always been faithful to the dammann frere taste, but will accept this only for a change once in a while.

I loved it! It was my favorite tea when i lived in Paris. I bought some boxes before we moved and now I am finishing my last one. This is my favorite tea for 10 o’clock thing:). The problem with some american brand teas is that we use too much artificial flavors, can hardly find a brand that does not taste like soap to me. In France, marriage frere, dammann frere, palais des the etc, they all have great tasting notes. I do not definitely like all the different flavors, but certainly have never felt like I was eating soap. It could be just my taste buds, but when my sis from Europe came to visit me, we had a tea forte earl grey and she was horrified…and I had not started yet my complaints about teas here.

Ok had to change the review for this one. Today, it was a rainy day so I thought about having a tea and since I had this in my shelf, decided to give it another try. First time I had infused it, I followed the normal routine of 1tsp per cup water temperature for black tea and it tasted aweful. Today I decided to give it anoher chance. I doubled the dose and also let the water sit for 29 sec before infusing it. Added some milk and there to my surprise I had a delicious creamy earl grey.

Preparation
4 min, 30 sec 2 tsp 7 OZ / 200 ML
