I had a full pot of this flavoured Oolong yesterday night.

I already reviewed this tea but I wanted to add something : the mineral taste.
This taste is the most proeminent I ever had in a tea. Ever. Of course I already noticed mineral taste in some teas but here it is really as if I made my tea with some typical mineral water very heavy on iron (Volvic).
It makes this Balade en Bretagne a very special tea and a beautiful dedicace to Brittany, a very mineral area.

Sounds quite interesting!

Very interesting – I usually find some teas kind of mineral, kind of maybe coppery, ceylons mostly (and I like it).

Ysaurella

I should send you some of this one so (I know I know not before Autumn) :)

I should say no, but oh it sounds irresistible. In Autumn we talk. I have just been lured to steepster over new travel tea purchases and I admit the teas meant to be brewed cold will probably need to wait a bit to get taste notes..

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 ?!?!?
