drank Violette by Mariage Frères
1196 tasting notes

Everything violet flavored just makes me wish I could live in France already.

I think I prefer Violette to Kusmi’s Violet. It seemed to only taste right when I prepared it a certain way. This one smells so much stronger, which I was worried about at first. As it steeped, the aroma carried over to me and it was just SO GOOD.

So of course actually drinking the tea was amazing too. It’s far more floral, but not like soap at all. It’s sweet and smooth.

There needs to be more violet flavored things around here. I think there is a gelato shop here that does flower flavors, they must have one. I just have no idea when it’s ever open! And of course one of my favorite cocktails is the Aviation with creme de violette.

Thank you for sharing this with me, Ellyn!

adore violet.
Next tea for you : Violette from Dammann Frères ? Iskandar from Mariage Frères ? both are so delicious

Ooh I didn’t know Mariage Frères has another. The description doesn’t really say it is violet but it sounds amazing! I definitely need to try the Dammann Frères one. I have some of their Macaron Cassis Violette and it is one of my favorites.

Amanda, PM your address and I’ll send you a sample of the DF blend. I don’t have Iskandar at the moment but I may buy it in 2 months (I have too many teas in cupboard!)
