I’m French and I don’t like red wine …paradox ?
Anyway I was brave and tried this tea, my dear Azzrian kindly sent some over me.

You know, the idea to create and blend a tea flavored with red wine couldn’t have come from France : It would be some kind of sacrilege here…(!)
So thank you dear American for always daring new things (with teas and with with food in general). Things shouldn’t be canonized as we often do here in France for some beverage or ingredients.

I cannot really say I taste a Merlot but for sure I have a real nice grape aroma especially on after taste.

Quite nice, well done 52 teas and thanks for being audacious

Preparation

While I was in France I loved to drink rosé, especially Côtes du Rhône, and of course back home I cannot find many. If I lived there, I wouldn’t like red wine either if I had that rosé all the time haha.

ahahaha It’s ok. I’m southern and I’m not super fond of grits.

next time you’ll come in France Amanda, you should try some rosés from Corsica, they are delicious …and this an only white wine drinker who says that !
@ Ze_Teamaker : in France when you are explaining during a lunch or dinner that your host should’n pour some red wine in your glass because you don’t like this….olala…there is a biggggg cold in the air….it just seems incredible…hope southern americans are more open minded :)

Uhm… I wonder whether the inventors of this tea will go as far as claiming you can get the combined benefits of tea and red-wine drinking (with moderation obviously) when tasting this blend. That would make a great marketing gimmick…

Ze_Teamaker: LOL! I read your comment just as I was finishing my grits! Obviously, the bacon and scrambled egg were the stars of the show…

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 ?!?!?
