This is a tea which grew on me – at first try it was not what I was expecting (too mellow, too natural. Too classy… And yes, those are not bad things, just not what i was expecting somehow!) but each time I loved it best. So rebuying a new package of this how could I not love this at first sip? It´s even better than I remembered. Very smooth and mellow, a really classy flavoured tea.

Some brewing tips, this resteeps very well as long as you are using a bit more tea than usual (maybe 25% more) and do not use the first steep´s water too hot. If so, it´s definitely worth it to keep using the leaves till the tea stops being great – you can probably get a couple more good steeps out of it.

LaFleurBleue

How is the cinnamon in the blend? I guess it’s a good one, as you can quite picky about it. But is the taste very strong, just slightly there or in between? thanks for your feedback. Cheers

cteresa

It´s very subtle IMO, just a hint on the background – stronger than the almond which i can not really detect (unless it is just in some smoothness). It´s mostly a nice sencha and dried real apple with some cinnamon on the background.

LaFleurBleue

Seems good and perfectly what I like more apple & tea than cinnamon, plus almond which is indeed not always easy to identify – I might try it when I next order from them (not too soon)

Sil

It IS a subtle tea. I couldn’t figure out how I felt about it :)

cteresa

Sil, yes pretty subtle, I did not know what to make what of it at first but appreciated it more and more each time – am now on the second package, which is praise indeed.

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.
