Thanks to Laurent for this sample.
A very apple & rose tasting cup, highly fragrant. It’s not bad, but definitely too perfumed for me.

that’s funny because I remember you liked very much the Dammann rose I sent you and I always thought (no idea why) this tea may be the same kind of rose (I know it has apple in addition too)- I definitively need my mom to share some of this one with me. Would you say we get more rose in this one vs the DF one ?

You know, it’s been so long since I tried the DF ones, I can’t say. The Apple is VERY present in this tea, & a little tart. Of course, flavored teas are not always my preference, & I hope you’ll try this one, because I think you might like it :)

until now my only reserve with Nina’s is the tea base (too weak for my taste). You know I love flavoured teas but really not all I need to have a very present base. e.g I never found a David’s tea I can really consider as a tea… and actually I am drinking more and more straight teas :)

I also want to taste a very full & flavorful bass, really that is the most important part! A little flavor on top can be nice, but only as an enhancement :)

Bio

I’m so excited to have found this community! I’m a self-employed Harpist (acoustic & electric – Originals, Classical, Rock, Jazz, etc) & Singer/Songwriter. My days & nights revolve around teaching at home, playing gigs, gardening,& fixing awesome food to eat. My schedule is different everyday, but I just go with the flow, & I sip a lot of tea!

My love of Tea began with Herbals back in the 70’s. One of my favorites was a licorice blend from House of Hezekiah, an old tea shop in Kansas City. There was also a tea with mint, rose petals, chamomile, etc called Nuclear Casual Tea.
In the 80’s I gave up caffeine, chocolate, alcohol, (& a few illicit substances…), and brewed medicinal blends & tinctures to support 4 pregnancies (all children born at home). In the 90’s my love affair with green teas began when I discovered ‘The Republic of Tea’. Their beautiful teas & packaging inspired my original song, “TeaMind”, from my CD “Zen Breakfast”. If you’d like to hear the song for free, drop by my website.

In general, I drink my teas straight, but occasionally I add a pinch of Stevia & maybe some coconut or almond milk (I’m allergic to dairy, gluten, & various other things & avoid most sweets.)

I’ve explored a variety of teas:
Whites tend to be a little bland…sorry
Oolongs – wonderfully sensual
Roobios – I’m not a fan in general
Puehr – a fairly new direction for me
I’m not a huge fan of flavored teas, but I do make exceptions, & I’ll try just about anything once.

And Black Tea, Oh how I love thee!!
I am on a quest for the most wonderful breakfast cup! I will find you, my Love!
