drank Fruits d'Alsace by Harney & Sons
1199 tasting notes

Are a lot of icons missing from the top (like the steepster logo itself) and on anyone else’s dashboards or is it just me? The best part is already knowing by heart exactly where to click anyway haha

Thank you Azzrian for a sample of this tea. I don’t know how I completely missed it from the one time I ordered from H&S because I would jump on anything to do with Alsace. Not my favorite place from my study abroad trip (i.e., Parisians aren’t the rude ones if you go to Strasbourg. I took Italian for 2 semesters and I always end up pronouncing French and Spanish words like they’re Italian…so I did so for “chantilly” and this woman FLIPS on me like you’d think I said chant-lily or something when all I did was pronounce the l’s! And people just stared at me while I was waiting at a bus stop. It was tacky.) but I still really enjoyed my time there.

This is such an interesting combination of fruits. I’m mostly getting cherry and plum, though I smell the apricot. It’s pretty sweet too, it almost feels too early for something this sweet but I will make it through.

I just really can’t get over how fruity it is, and it just tastes really good. As it cools, the black tea comes out a bit more since while it was really hot it was like a barrage of fruit flavors. There’s a nice balance between the flavors and the tea. I am going to finally have to get some of this.

This might taste better than most things I had in Alsace…but not tarte flambee by any means.

FYI, my dashboard is fine :-)
How rude of this woman! I find it so uncalled for, I think it’s refreshing whenever I hear a stanger making the effort to speak our language, who cares if it’s not perfect, that’s what creates diversity. I hope you don’t let that bother you :-)
P.S. I could give you a series of French answers you could reply if it ever happens again, but we’ll keep it classy, it is Sunday!

Yeah, it was only the second or third day there too, and I always tried first and usually let them switch to English if they wanted, but jeez she’s all like do you even know what chantilly is? It didn’t really bother me as much as the weird staring because I had just come from Germany (I literally walked back to France from Germany at that) and no big deal was ever made so coming back to that was like um okay, it’s not like I am yelling in obnoxious American English, I’m just sitting and waiting!

Hahaha I will take those French answers some other time.
