This is supposed to be a Parisian version of EG, huh? Truthfully I can’t tell the different between this and a regular EG. It’s not a bad cup, but also not one I’d be inclined to get from Della Terra, unless if it were thrown in as a free sample…though not sure if they do that kind of thing.

Just last night, I was thinking **How many teas from Della Terra that I liked enough to want to get? And the only 1 I could think of was ‘Wonders of Kashmir’ which I’ll have to have again soon. I mean Strawberry Sundae was good, but it tasted pretty much like Strawberry chocolate from Republic of Tea, while I don’t mind the idea of keeping a chocolate tea around, I havn’t gotten much interested in them. I really would love to try though: a dark chocolate tea with orange flavor. Those chocolate balls that you see around Christmas time that you smash….oh yeah dark chocolate. Not that I don’t like milk chocolate but it tends to be to sweet and can’t really deal with that much anymore :( Unless if it’s European, like Belgian chocolates….OMG, I remember when I was working at Big Lots (Worked there for almost 10 years.) We had gotten these Belgian chocolates in the shape of I think groundhogs…they were so cute. But when I tried it……Oh my my my! Rich, velvety, sweet but not obnoxiously so. Had just the right amount of ….something else to mellow it out.

Anyways…as this tea cools I’m liking it even less. It’s gotten a bit bitter. Yeesh. You know even when I don’t think I want to buy it, rarely do I not enjoy a cup of EG. Please tell me that doesn’t mean I’m going to stop liking EG’s! I would cry!

Bio

Currently 40 years old…

Been a tea lover for most of my life, though it’s only in the past? (5-8 years.) That I’ve been drinking loose leaf tea.

I like mostly blended teas in Black, White, and some Oolong. Sadly not much Green tea that I really like. And of course Herbal.

Rating Guide that I use, though I am not terribly consistent;)

100 Excellent
90-99 Very Good
70-89 Fair
50-69 The only teas that I am interested in in this rating are teas that I can buy locally, such as at a grocery store, fruit market, tea shop, etc. Or is fairly cheap/add on thru a website.
50 and Below No redeeming qualities whatsoever or is too much like a tea that I already have.

Some teas such as Constant Comment by Bigelow I still drink on occasion, it is one of my comfort teas from when I was growing up. Others are Perfect Peach, Mint Medley and Cozy Chamomile.

I am a bookworm, though I also enjoy art journaling/mixed media, making jewelry, spending waaaaaay to much time online…particularly bingeing various tv shows on Netflix and Hulu. Also various forums like this one (On and off.) Quora, Goodreads, Youtube and misc. others. If you see the nicknames Lynxiebrat/Lynxiegrl,Lynxiedove, Zaaron or Sarikcat, then drop me a message:)
