I THOUGHT this was day 4 of the Dammann advent calendar. REALLY it was a free sample.I put the packet down from day 4 and got them mixed up. Sorry if you see this review twice I am now posting it in the right place!

THANK YOU YSAURELLA for pointing out my mistake by making me think about why I though the tea was cherry-y!

When I opened the packet I was worried because to me it smelled almost like cherry cough syrup. I was getting some of the same smells as I waited for it to infuse.

HOWEVER, while drinking it this is a very enjoyable cup of tea. The based is delightful with the cherry and candyish notes. This is not my favorite cup nor will I reorder but I am glad I got the chance to try it!

Ysaurella, I love candy references, I used to be a such a candy freak when I was younger, thank god I don’t really have a sweet toot in my adult life! I
Don’t know those candies, but they are so pretty, they remind me of Pez, do you have the famous Pez dispensers in France?

Hello sweet candy ladies. I’ve been working on my family tree (ancestry) and of course, through my grandmother,I found family that had to leave France for religious reasons and became settlers very early Colonial American history. The King wanted the Huguenots OUT of France! (So there you have it! Haha!)

TheTeaFairy

Hahaha! Bonnie, no wonder you’re our Steepster mom…in one way or another, soon we’ll discover that you are related to everyone of us, lol!

Bonnie

Yes,I’m old! My grandmother always said we were Royal Stewart’s from Scotland which is true and her husband was from that same line too. She said there was a connection to France and I found it. (We kept good records so not hard to trace). It’s the stories I’m finding that I want to give my grandchildren that’s the best part.

Ysaurella: I’ve never heard of those candies but they looks so pretty like little works of art! Thanks for the info.

Bonnie: How have you been working on the family tree? With ancestry.com?

TheTeaFairy

So sorry to highjack your review with all this, Ellyn! Sometimes, Steepster conversations just take over :-)
Bonnie, that’s not what I meant, silly, you’re not OLD!!!!

Bonnie

Yep ancestry.com although my Aunt lived to 100 and had records so did my Grandmother born in 1901. But I did a DNA test too for my cousin who’s been doing research on family for many years. Military records are helpful and immigration record, census records. Anyone can do the trial free for a month.

welcome dear Frenchie Cousine Bonnie. We kept some huguenots in France and didn’t send them all to the new world ! but that’s true we were more a catholic country even if since the 20th century France is probably the less religious country in the wold
@ TheTeaFairy yes we have the pez candies…I love them and it reminds me the TV serie le caméléon (the pretender) :)

I like all kinds of tea and am open to new things. I am learning about all kinds of new tea and am working on pushing my palate with new tastes.

Looking for new tea shops/houses/cafes and finding new teas to sample is often part of the adventure!

Bringing varied teas to work makes the day interesting

I live in Framingham, MA with my husband, a cranky orange cat and an oversized chihuahua.

I am open to tea swaps from around the world and tea meetups if anyone is in the Greater Boston/ New England area.

As of 7/6/14 I am working to make every tea I own appear in my cupboard…including things I only have a small amount. Look around! Want to swap?
