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.

Sil

doh. sorry for the upset tummy..but glad you also found this one a little different.

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.

Eh. I think the mate comes through strongest, and I don’t particularly care for mate.

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.

Flavors: Bergamot

This was a delicious cuppa on a cold rainy spring day. The chocolate and vanilla tastes fairly natural and the rooibos base wasn’t overwhelming or too woodsy. If I ever ordered from this company, this would likely make it into the cart.

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.

Almond, not quite marzipan almond, but a sweet almond, vs. a crunchy almond. And oh, is this good. I wish this came in a caffeinated version. This is by far the best tea I’ve had. Vanilla almond love.

There are some teas you buy because they smell amazing, and that initial amazement fades over time. But there are some—like this one—that retain its crisp, minty fragrance and surprises you every time you open up the tin. I adore mint, so I might be biased. And I tend to only drink this one when I’m sickly, and the smell alone really clears up your sinuses. But even when I’m working at 100% capacity, this tea is a delight.

I’ll admit, it’s less “green” and more “mint.” If you’re not a huge fan of mint, it won’t be for you. The scent is overwhelming (I say that lovingly), and the fragrance fills your mouth and your sinuses. Despite the hot temperature, it’s cooling on the way down. The green base is pretty average, but you’re probably not picking up this one for the taste of actual tea.

So much mint. Everything is mint.

is ok. Sweet & nutty. Not my favorite but can be good for people who do not like bitterness

Flavors: Nutty, Sweet

Definitely an interesting Ceylon – not really what I was expected. Not even sure how to describe it. Yes light, yes a little brassy – but it’s deeper than that. Was really happy to have had the opportunity to try it.
Thanks so much Sil for sharing.

A light colour, i prefer to brew this a little bit shorter than the recommended time (about 1 minute). Fresh floral aroma and taste. Very clean, with a long lasting finish. Lasts for at least five steepings, have done up to 7 with a high tea-water ratio and good results. First steeping has a nice aroma of fresh yeasted bakery.
One of my favourite oolongs!

Woooo! 100th tasting note :)

I needed some black tea to go this morning (and I like using tea bags in my thermos) so I grabbed this.

Their tea bags are bizarre, it was like.. a baby sock filled with tea leaves. No room for the tea leaves to expand at all :/ But the tea itself was good, the bergamot was not too terribly strong but definitely present, which is just how I like it.

Flavors: Bergamot

This was a present from a friend, and a very propitious one – I had just finished a tin of one of my staples, Lady Grey, and finding surprisingly difficult to buy more locally. And this Gout Russe to me smelled a lot like Lady Grey – an earl grey tea with lots of orange.

Supposedly there are 7 citrus on this tea. Obviously the bergamot rules and orange is also very important. The other citrus I am less certain of. It´s somewhat delicate, somewhat astringent. I think I prefer my old staple, but this tin will be finished with pleasure.

Flavors: Bergamot, Orange

welcome back my friend! :)

Thanks! though as you can see, only partially. But am finishing samples, must make an effort.

Sil

partially is better than nothing at all :)

Well hello there, orange. This is the first time I’m tasting orange in an orange spice tea in a while. The last few booted orange out of the club. Other than the citrus, cinnamon is another main player in this tea. I would have liked to have picked up on the rose and almond but I think I might have brewed this one a little too strong, so the base ended up covering those notes up, perhaps. It’s a little on the bitter side. I’m sure milk and/or sugar would help with that but I don’t want to be consuming any calories today, yet.

Much thanks to MissB for the experience!

my first Quimen so… I like it wel, i drink it often while watching the childrens taking their bath, at home, after the work. I like its sweetness and character. I will certainly try others Qimen after this one!
