Well, yes and while I have had it before it does taste better on Easter day.

Happy Easter to all.

The tea itself is very MF, very refined. A hint of bergamot, almond ( the longer you steep it the strongest the note is), something floral, something spicy. Very lovely tea to share a pot on a spring holiday.

did you have it in the beautiful canister ?

cteresa

Nooo, I bought it loose by weight though it ended up in a old tea tin for another MF tin ( I steamed it and let it breathe to take the scent out, think it works). The beautiful beautiful cannisters are even pricier here than in France, I always go for loose tea or plain tins if worthwhile. I figure one beautiful cannister is the price of 2 plain ones or 4 different 100 grams (or 8 different 50 grams), I have never quite justified it to myself. Not for my own use!

Though I have sort of fallen in love with this TWG tea which cames in awesome cannisters and I might not have any alternative but buy it ;)

I thought thé de Pâques was only sold in the canister because it was a special edition but that’s good news if we can buy loose leaf ! I was “obliged” to buy a Full moon party canister because I absolutely wanted to taste this tea and it is only available with the canister…22 € for 100 grams… expensive …thanks God I liked it :)

There was a tea shop which had some, though I think it was from 2010 or even older ( I got it in 2011 anyway). They also have a few I have not found elsewhere, Chandernagor for example – I got to go back and try that one.

Full Moon sounds lovely indeed! I love the pretty cannisters (oh the ice tea glass ones), it´s just that the prices get to be a bit ridiculous.

Bio

Inconstant tea drinker – I mostly drink tea when not too hot. I hang around steepster much more frequently in (northern hemisphere) cold season.

- Teas -

I like all sorts of tea, flavoured and unflavoured, though I am picky. I am always willing to try anything new. I am now particularly interested in single origins.

I am one of those people who actually loves Lapsang Souchong. I am not crazy about Earl Grey, in general. I don´t quite get Darjeeling teas, but I am trying to make sure …

I like rooibos, though not all bases. I loathe hibiscus. I do not like fennel/liquorice/anise in blends or teas with chicory. I am picky about what I consider true cinnamon.

As you can probably tell from my cupboard, the brands I find more interesting right now are Mariage Fréres,Thé-o-Dor and Yumchaa.
