drank Thé à la Violette by Quai Sud
333 tasting notes

I really should know better than to buy tea without smelling it first and from home&decor type of shops. But it sounded so good I could not resist.

It is medium-strength black tea with very very strong (artificial to my nose) violet scent. A bit overpowering. But if you got a weakness for violet, even if artificial, it makes for a nice cup now and then.

Preparation
185 °F / 85 °C 3 min, 30 sec

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.
