drank Pêché Mignon by THE O DOR
82 tasting notes

Feeling like I need something fruity and tasty and mellow, but not weak this afternoon… I went for a black breakfast tea rather than my usual green which was a strange experience, reminded me why I always have a green tea first thing. Ah well! On to the tasting.

I have so little of this tea that using it feels like I really need a good excuse and a long time to savour it. The colour in the cup is bright and golden and the aroma is nothing but cantaloupe, whole and delicious. Despite how soft the flavours are this tea is a tad dry and astringent on the tongue, but I can overlook this for the beautifully smooth fruit flavours. It’s like eating a cantaloupe melon and peaches (the peach isn’t as strong as the melon), it’s nothing but delicious. Another high score!

I’ve always wanted trying The O Dor …I should ! but find them a little bit expensive vs a MF. Would you say the quality is equal or under ?

I just checked on their website and, wow, the tins really are expensive ): But their bags seem cheaper, and I’d bought this from a teahouse, it wasn’t too expensive. I’d say it’s about equal, though!
