This tea is likely going on my shopping list. have no idea how on earth Canadians acquire DF teas, but in the event that I have the opportunity to acquire this without paying insane shipping costs, I’ll do it. Either that or wait until I go to France and get some myself! ha. I like it a lot, but thankfully am not dying to get my hands on some this instant.
I was really cautious with the steep time here, because somehow I’ve been getting a lot more base than I’d like recently. I set the timer for four minutes, but lifted the basket out at about three and a half. I was greeted with the smell of cherried almonds, with a backscent of a really creamy, milky base. It reminded me of the tea my mother used to make chai with when i was little.
The taste is fairly similar to the scent, although the cherried note makes a more understated appearance at the end of the sip, giving the taste a very slight and pleasant tang. I’d started out with only a bit of sugar, and added a bit more for the second half of the cup. I’d say this tea was fine either way, although the sugar helped bring out the marzipan flavours a bit more, I think.
Thanks again, JustJames, for sending this along. Three dash-shaped stickers along the left side of the packaging let me know that this was the tea for the afternoon!!
