I have been dreaming about this tea. Cteresa and i swapped a year ago? And this has been on my wish list since then. I’ve searched for suppliers in the US and Canada to no avail and so when i had the chance to restock this one, 200g came home with me. For me, this is the perfect chocolate/hazelnut tea. You can still taste the base…the flavours are subdued but not so much that you can’t spot them instantly. I was terrified that i’d get this home and hate it…but i don’t. I love it. So thank you again Cteresa for sharing this one with me so long ago!

(on a side note for those looking for the o dor….they are apparently opening 4? more retailers in the US and are looking for this first in Canada. I had the opportunity to speak with one of their distributor folks at the launch of their tea in paris. She’s supposed to email me a list which i’ll share if she sends it along.)

Did they say where in Canada?

Sil

They’re not sure yet. If she sends me the list, i’ll post it on the forums. We joked about ME doing it :)

AllanK

Did they say where in the US they are opening retail stores?

Sil

they did but i don’t remember – but i’ll post the list if she sends it to me. If she doesn’t, i may email the store and ask the woman i spoke with to get the info for me if she can

I would personally like to see them open something in Nassau County or Queens. Much easier for me to get to than Manhattan.

Don’t they ship? I put together a mock cart and it looked like they would.

Sil

They do. I just vastly prefer to be able to either GO to the store, or ship within North America. :)

Marzipan

That’s a relief, I’m looking at them next. I don’t see us going to Paris any time soon, since when we go overseas it’s always to Denmark.

cteresa

oh, so glad you got it! I do love it, as does my family, was trying to restock recently but not much luck. Maybe they will have more resalers here soon as well.

My other tea from this morning. I finished off enough of the first 50g package of this one i picked up, to be able to add the remainder to the other package. yay for getting rid of a package ha! I adore this tea. It’s seriously one of my favourite straight teas from TTC. I’m struggling because i want to buy a ton more before the lot changes, but i REALLY have no room in my house for more tea at the moment lol honey, apple, cinnamon, bread like delicious tea.

I started the morning today with this one. I know, it’s not a fancy french tea but it’s one of my older teas and i’m still doing my best to keep my cupboard from being no older than 6 months. I managed to not make any purchases in April AND get my sipdown goal in, but May is another story. lol I haven’t added all the teabags to my cupboard yet either, mostly because i’ll be doing a few swaps in the short term and don’t want people asking for those teas as i only have 1 bag of each.

This tea was a great starter to being back home. So many things to do today to get organised for “real life” ugh.

trying to get in some tea drinking though since i need the water/liquids and because i’m not sure how much i’ll get in over the next few days. still enjoying this but i’m having trouble lately as i’m bored with a lot of my teas.

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling and am currently working on trying to get my other half to as many place in the world as possible.
