This week, I got the most thoughtful and delightful package form Steepster’s sweet hearth Sil . She carefully chose and selected tons of teas for me try and I so thank her for that ;-)

This one was a special request. I really like French flavoured teas and the only ones I ever got to try were from the lovely Ysaurella last spring.

Now that I get to play with this legend of a tea, I say this: ALL IN!!! Why not? Yep, I put the whole sample in my giant 16oz mug and hoped for the best. And the best it was…What a nice fruity cup this is!

It tastes like creamy strawberries, with strong black tea as a base. I steeped 5 minutes and don’t regret it. I love that it is a tad bitter and assertive.

I know I’ve said it before, the French retailers know how to balance the flavours so that the beverage remains what it is suppose to be: TEA! Not pop or soda, just TEA with a kick, ladies and gentlemen.

Thank you so much for this opportunity, sweet (but evil for the cupboard) SIL :-)

Bio

I am French Canadian, so please forgive me if my English is not always perfect!

My relationship with tea in a nut shell:

I’m married to straight Blacks. I have torrid love affairs with Oolongs. My BFF are Greens. I socialize more and more with Pu’erhs. I have distant White acquaintances that I visit once in a while. I party with Flavored!

Love Steepster, a place for tea lovers, where you learn and share with others…

About me:

I am a free spirit, I let people be who and what they want to be and expect the same in return.

Books! I love French and classic literature, but also modern and pretty much anything that captures my attention.

As tea and books, music is something I can’t live without! From Bach to Nirvana, my ears know no boundaries…

Art is food for the soul…I consume lots of it.

Animal and nature lover, I will never let a fury friend in needs.

I’ve been drinking tea for as long as I can remember. But since I’v joined Steepster, my tea knowledge has emancipated exponentially.

Drinking tea is a sensorial experience. The name in itself “Camellia Sinensis” lingers the promess of an adventure for the senses…

As for my rating system, well it’s pretty much inexistent…Since I don’t write many reviews, I try to focus on the good stuff and will usually review teas that left a big impression on me.

Not a big «swapper» but if we do get to swap together, you’ll remember me, I live up to my Fairy reputation :-)

I love taking tea pics, here’s my Instagram:
