This is a fruity black tea. I’m not sure I can pin down which fruits. The place I got it doesn’t seem to have a website. It’s in the Forum Des Halles in Paris, which is like a giant labyrinth with a 70s flavor. Irresistible has little colored sugar letters floating around in it. Brewed, it smells and tastes most like berry cotton candy.

Bio

I became a fan of tea in 2001 when I started frequenting Savoure in Eugene, OR. It has since closed, and I mourn it.

While visiting France, I did not buy any souvenirs, but I did manage to spend a small fortune at Mariage Frères. Me and my 500g of Marco Polo are very happy together, thank you.

My favorites are flavored black teas, and I like them with milk and sugar. That is not to say that I don’t also enjoy a good green, oolong, or rooibos, especially when they’re high quality. I’m not a huge fan of white, but sometimes one comes along that rocks my tastebuds. I like herbal/tisanes, but I confess that in my head I don’t completely consider them tea, and I usually only dig them out if I’m sick.
