drank Fruits d'Alsace by Harney & Sons
1817 tasting notes

This was our final tea party tea yesterday. I have reviewed it several times already, so I will simply recap…my guest thought it was very good. I find it very similar to Paris and Tower of London, with y preference in order being ToL, Paris, then this. If you want to like those other two teas but the bergamot puts you off, then you would probably really enjoy this. If you like Marco Polo by Mariage Fréres, (looky! looky! I found out how to do the accents!) you would probably like this a lot. Marco Polo is excellent with milk to bring out the creaminess and sugar to mimic sugared strawberries, while this tea base is smoother and less drying and needs no additions.

I really want to do a side by side tasting with ToL and this tea soon.

Bio

I am a music teacher and homeschooling mom who started drinking loose leaf tea about four years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.
