Velours nacré is a tea I have never heard about before ordering it to complete my Dammann teas order.I wasn’t expecting too much from this tea as I didn’t choice it really and just went for it to access the free shipping for my parcel.

This is a yummy tea.Very greedy with its almonds and chocolate aromas.
The fact of adding a splash of orange blood to the blend is really a nice idea. It adds some depth to the blend.

The orange lingers a long time after having finished the cup

Really delicious to begin the day.

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 3 min, 30 sec

I love the name of this tea – Pearly Velvet, it sounds so luxurious and almost decadent.

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 ?!?!?
