Wicked cool finding this at Winners. They had quite a few of theirs available but in the end, this was the only one that seemed worthwhile. I won’t be rating this just yet seeing that, in the end, I do have the flu and was luckily sent home today since a co-worker so happened to be scheduled to come in for a shorter mid-shift and was ok with taking my closing hours. All of those times I covered for everyone else has paid off! I insisted on staying if she had plans tonight but she reassured me she didn’t and didn’t mind. Phew, I’ve gotten worse throughout the evening with body aches and fatigue, sorer throat, etc, so I couldn’t imagine being there still.
The dry leaf smells mostly of red fruits, and quite frankly, this aligns with the taste. Granted, my tastebuds are currently compromised, but I bought this before I got sick and it even smelled mostly of red fruits then, as well. Maybe a soft rose note scent-wise, but I’m definitely not getting that in the flavour.
It’s nice to experience a green tea that doesn’t go bitter extremely easily either.
First steep (yesterday) was very floral; lots of soft rose in here like only the French do in their teas. Do I enjoy floral teas? Not particularly. So, this surprised me with its gentle softness and delicate flavors.
I gave a bit to the lady I’m staying with to try, who didn’t like it. “Too floral”.
Second steep (today), just as dark of a tea, less tea-tasting, more rose and softness today. I wish I had another word for it, but that’s all I’ve got.
IF you enjoy lightly scented, delicately floral teas, I’d definitely try this. High rating is for the tea quality – it’s truly up there – not for my liking of it. It’s not the tea’s fault that I don’t like florals… I can still recognize and respect it’s beauty and feel.
First steep 3 min, 2nd steep 5, rounded it to 4.

From Sil. :) TY!
Tea smells pretty rich and malty.
This is pretty good. A bit thin and astringent for texture, but the flavour is nicely malty. I’m totally happy drinking this, but probably wouldn’t search it out to buy.
(My One True Love is Assam. So.)

A delicate tea full of well balanced fruity flavours and flowery perfumes. The fruits blend together quite nicely but still they remain distinguishable. The overall result is very sweet, so I tend to use only a little sugar (a little less than 1 tsp) to bring out the flavour.
Flavors: Flowers, Fruity, Mango, Peach, Rose
Was at the local French cafe and wanted to try something new. While this wouldn’t have caught my eye normally, it’s the holidays, so why not!
This smells like a genuine, fresh-baked apple pie with plenty of cinnamon and sugar. And there’s a whiff of a clean, crisp tea base underneath it all. The taste itself is a little lighter on the apple and spice, but sweet and smooth. Looking at older reviews, I wonder if they hadn’t improved the tea base over the past few years. Overall, it’s nice and cozy and not too in-your-face!
Thank you to my sister Sil for sending this sample my way.
I’m usually not a fan of Ceylon teas, but contrary to most, this one didn’t have that typical iced tea flavor to it, and was enjoyable to drink with a certain richness that made me think of dry roasted nuts. It is rather on the astringent side, however, which I don’t mind so much, except that it tends to hit my tummy in a rough way, and in this case, in spite of a full breakfast, I could still feel it’s effects, but not so much as to lose my breakfasts or anything like that, LOL.
I had bought a bunch of samplers of Le Palais des thes from Verizon recently and decided to give this one a try. I love the aluminum cylindrical packaging. Lovely tea. I see some flat dragonwell-type leaves mixed with dry mint and blue cornflowers. The scent is a mild mix of mint and bergamot. Upon brewing, the liquid was a light yellow color. Lovely, fruity and minty scent. I brewed this at a cooler temperature, which brewed up a light taste. I really like this tea. Nothing was overbearing and I could taste hints of bergamot and mint. There was no astringency to this tea too.
Flavors: Bergamot, Green, Mint
Easily the most prestigious Earl Grey I’ve ever had. It tastes amazingly modern with it’s Yunnan base tea and this gentle Bergamot texturing; it’s got incredible depth. This is an Earl Grey for people who love Earl Grey as it’s both immediately familiar but absolutely unique all at the same time. The only thing I would say is this isn’t a breakfast tea, it’s just too spectacular to waste on a mouthful of eggs, bacon and potato’s. Enjoy it in the early hours of the afternoon, it will really set you up for the rest of your day.
This is okay – I’ve been drinking less tea lately, so maybe my palate just needs to come back around, but I find it thin in taste and a bit… plain. Not what I expected from Palais des Thés. I like a more robust cuppa in the AM. Perhaps on the second or third taste of this canister it will get better.
