drank Ginger peach by Au coin du thé
35 tasting notes

Today i learned that i have a tea shop in a grocery store at 5 minute of my home it’s was my duty as a tea lover to go see what it’s look like ! It’s a counter with maybe 60 or 70 kind of tea and and some really nice tea-ware talking with the woman behind the counter i learned that the store is there since 2009 ( can’t say if it true or not but no reason to doubt what she say to me) maybe she’s in here and i don’t know it lol i should ask her next time.

They seem to know what they are doing the tea is in good air sealed tin so i decided to buy some tea with ginger in it since i’m still sick and was out of ginger tea that one is a green tea but i forgot to take note of which green tea it was ginger and peach also in it and what seem like chrysanthemum flower.

Dry leaf smell really good mostly peach the leaf was broken but as i seen with some tea i ordered Canada post are not gentle with package even with padded envelope so maybe they get that way to them.

The tea lack taste other that peach but i think i did not put enough tea in my infuser.

Overall it’s seem like a good little store but i will ask them more question next time like where the tea come from ( i like to know what i drink )

Bio

Name is Guillaume or William for the english version of it :p

Reading, movies and music are mostly my only hobby ( they take most of my time but lucky me i can drink Tea when doing all of them ! :D) i am a technology addict and at the same time love old thing ( i shave with a straight razor )

Like most people here i suppose tea as become a obsession really fast how can it not be with so many tea and teaware available? it is a conspiracy i say !

Tea lover for a couple of month now it’s the only hot beverage i can drink ( i hate coffee and the like ) thank to having a DT near my house and to Den’s for the 3$ for tea novice

I’m way behind in my tasting note but it will be done ! Bad note from me does not mean the tea was bad i try to explain what i did not like but that just my opinion I’m no expert on tea i like what i like and that all.

I mostly drink green tea i found black tea to be too bitter for me since i don’t put sweetener in anything flavored black tea are ok if they have something already sweet in it

Rooibos and herbal are ok all depended on the flavor they are

I love most white and oolong just have yet to find one i really like

everyone as different taste but there tea for every taste

Location

Near montreal, Canada
