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!

Flavors: Baked Bread, Floral, Fruity

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

Happy 100!

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

Sil

welcome back my friend! :)

cteresa

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!

Another one that i figure I’ll add to the tea box since it’s a relatively decent ceylon and if anyone else is like me, they typically don’t love ceylons haha.

Morning tea. I vastly prefer drinking this one at home in a ceramic mug, so it almost always becomes my tea for working at home :) Still enjoying this one though it would be nice if smaller options were available. I still don’t LOVE most ceylons, but there are a few out there including this one that isn’t so bad :)

another tea from earlier today. i quite like this ceylon – super glad i read reviews and decided to risk it when i was in Paris. just a nice cup, though arguably better when i drink it in a mug versus travel mug.

noms. another “long” day of work – i apparently was the only one to not get the memo that everyone is slacking for the next two days. I don’t mind so much because it’s a chance to get a ton of work done, but frustrating when the people who are supposed to be working, are clearly not really around or working. just take the time off if that’s how you roll.

anyway, lots of tea time for me thankfully, so there’s that.

still pleasantly surprised every time i have this tea – such a departure from other ceylons that i’ve had that are average at best when i drink them. this one is really tasty in comparision.

soooooooooo many paris teas, so little time to drink them all.
I’ve contemplated offering up sample packs of various fancy french teas for people to get a chance to try them but i’m not sure if a)anyone would want them or b)how much of a pain it would be to pack them up and ship them out – esp given canada posts’s expensiveness.

This one is a damn good example of a ceylon i can get behind. :)

Lala

A) everyone would love it B) biggest pain in the butt ever!!! Ha ha. Just enjoy them all to yourself :)

Sil

haha if there are any you want to try/revisit let me know. I think i owe you a surprise one of these days :)

Evol Ving Ness

These are the questions that I’ve been mulling over.

MissB’s package to me was about $10.79 shipping, she charged $10 for it. It probably had 100 gm of tea in it. You’d just have to be tricky with the scale! (and I know many people would be interested)

Sil

thanks Eqqusfell – maybe in January i can get motivated :)

mmm i really need to get cracking on drinking more of my teas from Paris. I’ve being doing it gradually but now i should actually focus on them :) On the upside, my oldest teas are from April now i really am in to the “majority” of my teas. I quite like this one for a ceylon and i’m glad i picked this one up on the basis of the steepster reviews.

I pulled this one out this morning since it’s been a while since i tried it. This always surprises me because it’s a ceylon. there are some chocolate notes in the baseline as well as a little bit of maltiness. Nothing compared to my other teas, but it makes this a really interesting tea especially because it’s different.
