nice as a quick stop over cup of tea, but i wouldn’t buy. i suppose it seems a rather half hearted effort to my palate? still, thanks loads to the ever-brilliant ifjuly for the try of it. i guess i need more of commitment is all, lol!

Hmm, maybe yours is a little stale? I thought this one was pretty potent in the floral department.

not to me, not compared to dammann freres’s violette IMO.

i was bummed with this one too, have yet to find a kusmi i really really like.

JustJames

i think the closest has been roi des mages… but i forgot it on the counter for 10 minutes, lol. i was given a set of 5 as a gift and i’ve been handing them off to poor students (like me only more so, lol). although kusmi is my least favourite of the european teas, it still trumps anything local, LOL! ie: they get snatched pretty quickly once i put them out in the starving students cupboard. each person can grab 2 items ONLY IF THEY NEED IT… so if they get tea, that means they’re opting out of one food item =0)

I guess I need to try more violet teas, then! I liked this one, but this gives me hope for finding something better.
