There is finally, FINALLY a tea store in my little country, that has many teas to try, is decently priced and that I don’t have to pay steep international shipping fees for. Happy Day! I have no experience with actual tea stores, I always purchased online. Being so close to so many different kinds of teas, to see and smell them all, it took all my self control to not purchase every single one of them. Alas, my wallet has it’s limits, and after I chose 5 or 6 (ok, ok, maybe 7) teas, it was screaming STOP THIS NOW!. Le Palais des Thes in Tel Aviv – I wish you a warm welcome, and I suspect I will be seeing you often :)
This is the first of the teas that I purchased. I am impressed.
It’s flavor has a presence, yet it is smooth and mellow. I had the first cup straight, and the second with a touch of milk. Both were very good, but I admit I am partial to black tea with milk.
