I got this tea thanks to LaFleurBleue, merci beaucoup :)

(by the way if anyone can help me by telling me how to manage to put some writing in bold here on Steepster I would be more than grateful – I really don’t see where to do this)

So merci beaucoup because it is really a very nice tea, very delicate, refined.

To me, basil is the main flavor but not overpowering, it’s just on the top of the other flavors : rose and peony. It’s like the cherry on the top of the cake, it sublimates the whole tea.

This is a mild tea, may be perfect for an evening.

This is my first Gryphon tea and I really appreciated it. However I liked the tea bag quality which is really high and all the information provided on the wrapping sachet (character, aroma,origin, tea pairing suggestions)

The flowers and basil seemed to be of highest quality.

Great tea.

I am not sure how others do it, but for me I simply put my words between asterisks and it shows up bold, such as bold
Sounds like an interesting tea!

Hesper June

ha! see it showed up bold just now! just simply add 2 asterisks in front and behind the word or sentence you want to make bold:)

Ysaurella

thanks very much Hesper June

Azzrian

Yay I was so happy when someone taught me how to do that! :)

Almost read that as Nympho of the Nile, then thought, Who’d want a tea that’s been around?

Luckily I gave it a second glance.

lol, Geoffrey!

Ysaurella, thanks for this review. I’ve never had a tea with basil in it. Sounds interesting, I’ve added this to my (very long) shopping list. Plus I really like its name!

In addition to placing an asterisk on either side of text to make it bold, you can put an underscore on either side to italicise it, or put a dash/hyphen on either side to strike it through.

thank you all for your comments :)

First, please forgive me for my English and all the grammatical mistakes you’ll find in my posts.
As English isn’t my mother tongue it sometimes makes things more difficult to express cleverly and accurately what I feel.

I was mainly in black flavoured teas, green as well if not bitter.
I’m now drinking much straight teas because my palate is now developed enough to appreciate them .

My favourite brands are : Mariage Frères,Theodor,Butiki Teas,Dammann Frères, Betjeman & Barton.
My ratings are as follow :

100 to 95 : my darlings; always in my cupboard

94 to 90 : Excellent tea, often in my cupboard

89 to 80 : very good tea, a pleasure to drink it

79 to 70: not bad even nice, why not having it sometimes, but well, not so urgent !

69 to 50 : Meh, deceptive or just not for me – but has some qualities

49 to 30 : I just don’t appreciate it

Under 30 : is this tea ?!?!?
