This tea brings immediately to mind spring cherry green tea.

I believe in my excitement to try this tea I used too much leaf and / or perhaps water that was too hot.

I unfortunately decided to break into this tea (it smelled so fabulous I could not resist!) after 6 o’clock pm. I do hope it won’t keep me up all night.

Sadly right now I must award it only 2/4 leaves. I do believe once I tweak the steep it will be a 3/4 however I do think that it is on par as a tea with spring cherry. I am not saying this tea is not good, but I certainly won’t bring it from France to the US if there is a comparable tea here.

Post-Steep Additives: none

Resteep: 3 minutes – still a nice vegetal fruity tea, dumped in honey and drank it all up

I got my order in from the group order from Dammann Freres with Doulton today!

The packaged smelled delicious, simply delicious. I had to have one right away.

I also got some surprises in there I can’t wait to try!

Rating: 2/4 leaves

Bio

I am The Devotea USA. I love caffeine! I prefer tea to coffee. I prefer my flavors to be in your face, not subtle. I plan to use this blog to keep track of the teas I have tried.

I get my daily dose of caffeine from Starbucks (Grande soy no water chai latte).
