I cannot say enough good things about this tea! I ordered it expecting a straightforward, zesty black tea somewhere on the spectrum close to Earl Grey. However, this is anything but ordinary! The aroma is overpowering; you get a mix of the vanilla and citrus, some lemongrass and florals. The color is a clear burnt sienna. It’s not strong or spicy to taste; it’s light and full at the same time. It’s a mix of contradictions and a study in subtleties. It just has a hint of something that makes it special and stand out. It was such a surprise, and evokes so many memories of Paris. This tea resembles its namesake.

“The heaven of modern humanity is indeed shattered in the Cyclopean struggle for wealth and power. The world is groping in the shadow of egotism and vulgarity. Knowledge is bought through a bad conscience, benevolence practised for the sake of utility. The East and West, like two dragons tossed in a sea of ferment, in vain strive to regain the jewel of life…Meanwhile, let us have a sip of tea. The afternoon glow is brightening the bamboos, the fountains are bubbling with delight, the soughing of the pines is heard in our kettle. Let us dream of evanescence, and linger in the beautiful foolishness of things.” – Kakuzo Okakura, “The Book of Tea”

I am happiest at a tea room, or snuggled up at home with a freshly brewed cup.
