I absolutely wanted to buy this tea, because of its history (described in the tea sum up) : I found this very romantic and I adore citrus flavoured teas.
Opening the bag…oh…I was first disapointed because no pieces of fruits here, no flowers…only dry leaf + essential oils.
The perfume of the dry leaf was fine but not exceptional.
I brewed it as requested and magic arrived !
What a wonderful tea, so subtile, delicate with a touch of orange just as we need, not over flavoured and so natural.
Just as if we had some fresh orange juice into an excellent black tea.
We can taste as well some bergamot but a very delicate and soft bergamot.
A beautiful tea, reliable as only an excellent classic tea can be.
Jean Jumeau-Lafond should have loved his wife so much to imagine such a fantastic tea for her…or Mrs Jumeau-Lafond had a fantastic taste and explained exactly what an excellent tea “goût russe” should be …we’ll never know…
