Thanks to Laurent and Mélanie from Nina’s I can taste this lovely named tea.
Irony is there : I wanted to buy the homonymous tea from Theodor and it was out of stock so here I am to taste another je t’aime proving if necessary that we can have several loves and say je t’aime to several teas (even in the same day, even in the same hour !)

Well I am not finding it strong (but it’s not weak, neither light bodied)and I am not sure if the stronger taste with this this cup is coming from the base… Laurent would you reveal us a Nina’s secret and tell us what kind of tea base is used here – It’s written Keemun on my sachet as the other teas I had from Nina’s but I am wondering …

I steeped it 4 min and it was nice, not bitterness nor astringency, until now I never had a Nina’s bitter even if I never respected the brewing instructions as with 2 minutes I found them too light for my taste.
The flavours are just perfect, delicate as always with this lovely brand but this time I think the tea base is working really better for me with these flavours.

Another caramel chocolate tea I like.

I went to the shop rue Danielle Casanova 1 week ago and it was still closed for work, I would love to take a friend of mine to have a brunch here, let’s wait so…

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 ?!?!?
