I was pleasantly surprised by this unusually named tea bought from a souvenir shop from a marine life museum in Cherbourg – not the most usual of locations for tea shopping I know.
However, it has an attractive aroma, both in the leaf in once properly brewed.
Brew it quick (3mins) if you want it without milk, but leave it a bit longer (4mins) if you are a milk drinking person.
It never needs sugar, as the name would suggest it tastes sweet (but not unpleasantly so) already.

This is a good after lunch tea, relaxing but with muted fruity tones and a great aroma. I wouldn’t recommend after dinner as it might keep you awake, and not whilst eating either as then your mouth will have too many tastes in it and it would be too overpowering.
Would taste nice with a slice of almond cake or lemon drizzle cake.

Lemon drizzle cake is probably my favourite cake to have with tea. Mmm mmm

Surprisingly, the Lemon Cake at Costa Coffee is amazing! I went in, got a cup of camomile and couldn’t decide what to have with it. I randomly went for the lemon cake and it was FANTASTIC. So there you go. Rubbish tea but good cake – go figure.

Bio

For a long ago party, I produced a Food Menu and a Tea Menu for my guests. The food Menu was less than 1 side A4. The tea menu was 8 sides of A5 including an explanation of the process required to produce each tea and explanation of the Orange Pekoe leaf grading system.
This pretty much sums up my life long love affair with tea, and any other information about me would therefore be irrelevant if I went into it here.
