Oh the love I have acquired for these French teas! and all thanks to MissB and Dexter3567 for sharing a million different companies and teas just because they wanted to! :) steepster friends are generous it’s crazy! We steepsters are collectors of tea. Usually collectors don’t usually share their collections and that is why I love steepster! We are u like usual collectors.

Anyways… This lovely came from Dex and oh man! Boston blend from H&S… By far this one beats it out! How do these French companies do it?! Perfection all bundled up in each tea! How does a girl get a job there? One can dream…

For breakfast I had some chocolate chunk hazelnut biscotti granola cereal and I remembered I had some French tea that resembled this from my box from Dex I just had no idea which kne so I went through them all looking at them trying to narrow them down by smell and look before I looked them all up trying to find this gem!

Anyways… Back to the tea! This is decadent, luxurious, indulgent, grand, sinister almost. It’s too good to be true. Creamy, nutty, citrusy, and a touch of floral. A perfect balance of all of these fine ingredients! I do recommend sugar and a touch of milk to make this tea all that more sinful!

This tea has such an innocence to it that you feel guilty drinking it.
If you didn’t know better, you wouldn’t guess this was tea.

Anyways, I wish I could but this. The tins they come in are so quaint and would look amazing on my tea cart.

Delicious!

We’ve found two places in France where you can buy DF teas for cheaper shipping and sometimes cheaper prices than the Dammann site ( though DF does have cheaper shipping than most of the big French tea co.)
http://www.cadeau-deco-vendome.com/en/dammann-freres-teas-xsl-247_268.html. There are more teas under the Christmas headings.
http://www.chocolathe.fr/groupederubrique/index.html. this one is in French only.

Shipping is usually pretty quick too.

Bio

Hi! I am a 20 year-old from Salinas, California. I attended school in Monterey and played softball for my JC. I recently moved to San Luis Obispo, CA where I got a job as a full time baker and I LOVE my job! I have always loved to bake and cook since I was young and actually started my own cupcake business in highschool to help pay for my senior year as well as pay my way through college. Once I moved my cupcake business was put on hold, but I still love what I’m doing now. I love to work with children and hope to transfer soon to a college for child development or family psychology. I would also love to go to culinary school! I have a lot of things I want to do and am determined to do them! I am a huge tea enthusiast. I love to read about tea. Learn about tea. Make tea. Drink tea. Taste new flavors.

I am also very big on reading and always enjoy a good read. If you ever have any reccomendation never be afraid send it my way!

I am really excited to be a part of this tea community and can’t wait to trade tips, teas, recipes and treats!

PM me with any of the above and I can’t wait to meet you all!
