drank Paris by Harney & Sons
16 tasting notes

So, the last few days have been hell. Had to decide which tea to drink to make things normal again. Paris! Yes, Paris. I’ve been to the real deal and would love to go back. I, of course, picked Paris up for the name and not expecting much but when you smell it you really say ‘ohhh’.
The first thing that I think of from my visit to Paris is the citron tart I had. Oh if only I could bake that good. The tea brings back some of those memories and the other great foods that I had.
I will have to make sure I get more soon. I see some interesting days ahead. :DT he tea reminds me of a lighter Earl Grey but very smooth & not hard in flavor.
Drink w/ a bit of sugar in 8 oz cup ~ serveral cups were enjoyed.

Bio

Like most everyone I started out drinking Lipton tea. On a trip back to my home state of Oregon, I discovered Stash Tea Company. I liked them because they were from my home state and the flavors that I found. =) On a trip to Paris, France, I stopped by Mariage Freres. I had my “Ahhh” moment. The gentleman asked what I liked – at the time Earl Grey. My eyes went wide when he picked up this barrel of tea & shook it, opened the lid and said smell. I was in love. My first taste of loose leaf tea was Imperial Earl Grey. I took a break from tea but continued to drink Stash Tea.
Another door to explore opened with the discovery of Jane Pettigrew’s The Tea Companion: A Connoisseur’s Guide. I started marking off the teas I tasted in her book. I have purchased other tea books as well but Jane’s book has been the one I have always returned to for teas. I had the pleasure of picking up Jane’s new updated version of the book at the World Tea Expo. I look forward to tasting more teas. =)
