Living in France, I didn’t even know we had such thing as a French Breakfast Tea, unless it’s made from coffee beans :D But I see quite a few references with this name on steepster, so it must exist. This was a Christmas present, along with my beloved Thé à l’Opera and a rooibos tin.
To the point then. The scent is present, not stong, and it is very pleasant. It smells like the cake we make in eastern Europe for some occasions, which is plain cake with a swirl of a walnut and chocolate paste.. quite a gourmand scent I’d say.
Now this is a light tea, not exactly what I need for breakfast before rushing to the office (I’ll stick with Irish tea + milk here).
It’s more of a spring-vacation-when-you-have-nothing-to-do-but-take-your-time-and-dream-of-beautiful-things,- wearing-L’heure bleue- and-waiting-for-prince-charming-to-come breakfast tea.
I’d definitely have this tea the morning in a café, looking at the sun rise, people going by and just enjoy the day.
Not my usual mornings.
