ok, here is my second try with this tea with a shorter steeping time: 3 minutes only.
No more bitterness at all, a soft and mellow tea. It takes all the meaning of his name : Luxury.
It is delicious, maple and chestnuts are really present but I detected some apple cubes if I’m not crazy.
I really like it and upgrade my rating.
Hope it won’t be ages until someone else review this tea ! I’d like to have your opinions too.

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 ?!?!?
