91

I’ve been quite absent these last 2 weeks and it will be the same for the next two ones. I am moving from home January 2 and have so much to do : pack my teas especially…meaning I kept only very few to drink until the effective move.
So I leave my adored Paris for a near suburb…c’est la vie…I’ll have a bigger flat, a more recent one, with a better isolation, but my heart is broken somewhere…It’s not to be snobish but I think my life will be quite different.

The Tea !

Except the fact I struggled to manage to open the tin, I liked this tea very much.
I received it as a gift for Christmas by my Mom and it was a great idea.
Once upon a time Christmas…Il était une fois Noël is a very comfortable tea with a dominant apple and cinnamon in a supportive role- but the nice point is the presence of almond, very refined.
I didn’t get ginger but I need to test it again asap I’ll be installed in my new BIG kitchen.
More place for my teas should stop my sadness :)

which suburb are you moving to?

Nicole

good luck with the move!

Azzrian

Good luck with your move!

Ysaurella

thank you girls :)
@ Sil : I’ll be 15 km from Paris, meaning 20 min by train from St Lazare (very central). I’ll be in the French department of Val de Marne and the town is quite near Disneyland as well (21 km)

Sil

Ysaurella – have a wonderful move! It’ll be different but you’ll find things to love I’m sure. I haven’t visited that neighbourhood yet but I’m sure it’s lovely

Good luck, may it be for the best, unexpectedly sometimes how things go! And more room for teas sounds like a great thing :) I keep buying little shelves on ikea and pretty tins, it´s amazing how the sight of your tea corner never gets old or stop cheering you up.

And this sounds like a wonderful christmas gift!

Ysaurella I hope the move has surprises that are good for you! Maybe places to explore! I love my smaller town where I know my shops and I love to take photo’s now. I never did this when I live in the city. We are all here ready to listen to your new adventures and wish you well!

Ysaurella

i’ll keep you updated for sure

I’m so happy you were able to find a place you like! Too bad it’s out of Paris, must be really hard to leave the one place you feel your heart belongs to…but at least it’s not too far, right? And more tea storage is a BIG plus, that’s for sure!
Good luck with everything:-)

Bio

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 ?!?!?

Location

Paris, France
