This is from last spring swap with lovely Ysaurella.

You would think it has lost its freshness by now, but nope, this is still very potent. I had enough to make a large pot tonight. It’s like having Turkish Delights in a beverage! It is very reminiscent of that wonderful friandise, but its not overly sweet as one would think.

It has a nice fruity/floral mouthfeel, almost like a soft perfume. I don’t know a lot of teas with dates in them. Don’t really know what green dates taste like, i’m assuming they are dates that have not been dried? Like fresh figs maybe… I definitely like what is does to this cup.

Perfect little dessert tea, the way I like them, sweet but not sickening!

Thank you so much Ysaurella for this wonderful tea :-)

Oh yum. Turkish Delight + dates is a good idea.

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:
