drank Orange Pekoe by Gorreana

Maybe it is the heart talking, but this Tea is so soothing to me that I always recommend it to my tea lover friends from abroad. Not too strong and with the advantage of being from the Azores – it’s bio!

drank Cerisier by Lupicia

It did remind me of cherry blossoms in the Spring. A nice brew to drink and drink again…I add some sugar (but only one cube or TS).

drank Rose Darjeeling by Lupicia
7 tasting notes

What a nice scent when you first open those little packages from Lupicia. Just found out about this brand and I can say it was a great surprise. Be careful not to let it steep for too long. Otherwhise, your tea could taste somehow bitter, even if the rose perfume remains there.

A perfect every-day tea for those who can’t live without a cup of black, but who can’t cope with too much caffeine. I have it at night, sometimes with some green cardomom and milk.

drank Prince Vladimir by Kusmi Tea
7 tasting notes

I love Russian blends like this one and Kusmi really is a great option for those who look for a true Russian flavor. One can’t avoid thinking of Samovars and Winters in Moscow. I always add at least some sugar to my cup, but this is obviously a matter of choice.

First time I had a cup of American Breakfast. Bought it in Paris a couple of days ago and couldn’t wait to try it. Even better with some milk and sugar.
