From Angelina's Teas

Cup Characteristics: Ooh-la-la flavor notes from ‘crème de la vanille’, Earl Grey, Jasmine and Lavender deliciously blended with flavory Ceylons, Nilgiris, Assams and Kenyas. Good flavor tempered with flowery character and malty notes.

Infusion: Bright coppery colour

Ingredients: Premium black tea, Premium green tea, Rose petals, Lavender flowers, Jasmine flowers, Cornflower petals, Natural flavors.

Information: Truly a unique and wonderful tea. With their innate sense of style and sophistication, the French elevate even the simple act of taking tea to an art form. From the delightful tea salons dotting every Parisian arrondissement to tea served at outdoor cafes nestled in the hills of Provence you will find French Blend the pinnacle of everything tea.

The Assam component gives the tea richness – like a brocade at Versailles whereas the Nilgiri and Ceylon gives the tea a saucy but sprightly flavor. From Kenya there is romance and mystery with superb golden color notes and from China there is the delicate perfume of Jasmine – so often used in Parisian perfumes. To cement the ‘French’ character, lavender from Provence was added along with some rose petals – a tea fit for the Latin Quarter along the Seine.

Tea became the fashionable beverage in French society toward the end of the reign of Louis XIV. Members of the upper class would gather to debate issues of the day and drink tea.

I couldn’t resist a cup of this tea this morning, with its pretty mixture of tea leaves with pink and yellow rose petals and blue lavender. The dry leaves smell like an Earl Grey, with a little lavender thrown in. The tea itself smells floral, with sweet vanilla and bergamot. The flavor of this tea is different than expected from it’s aroma. There are malty and jasmine notes, followed by a light vanilla. The bergamot only really becomes noticeable in the aftertaste. I originally steeped this one for 5 minutes, since the range said 3 to 7, but I think that next time I would only do about 4 minutes to keep down the bitterness. I can’t quite decide if I love this tea or not. It’s the lightest Earl Grey flavor that I’ve ever tasted, with a lot of floral notes added in.

-Dry blend has small and medium black and green tea leaves with pink and yellow rose petals and blue lavender. Petals float to the top during steeping.
-Dry leaves smell like bergamot and lavender. Tea liquor aroma is floral with sweet vanilla and bergamot.
-Tea liquor is a cloudy medium reddish brown color.
-Malty jasmine flavor with a light vanilla finish. Bergamot aftertaste.
-Best with milk and sweetener.
-Good tea. Light floral and malty flavor with notes of vanilla and bergamot.
