Now this is the last of the Comptoir teas, and this time I’m not mistaken. It’s a bit confusing, as this smells almost exactly like Le Thé d’Amandine by the same company. (Reviewed here: http://steepster.com/clareborn/posts/212004)

Obviously, these two teas have completely different flavour profiles on paper, some of which comes through in the brewed tea. Weirdly, this one has a slight hint of Dammann Frères’ Pu erh Gourmand, as well. (Reviewed here: http://steepster.com/clareborn/posts/196900)

So this feels like a big, crazy, mosh pit of French quality tea. It should be more appealing, you know – two teas I really enjoy coming together in one dirty oolong? Because the base tea here is very nice, just the kind of earthy oolong I enjoy. But no – it’s just too similar, like when you hear a song that sounds almost exactly like one of your favourites, or when you meet a person who looks very much like a friend of yours. Something’s just the tiniest bit off, and it’s hard to make out what it is.

Still, this is a great tea. Dark, rich, velvety sips all throughout the cup. If I’d tried this one before the two others, this could very well have ended up being the one I preferred.

I received this sample from bluebelle in our February swap. Thank you for sharing!

I was nervous about this tea because I could not find an English description of the tea. I still am not sure what I am sipping, but man it is good. Why oh why must my mouth like teas that are impossible to get a hold of? As I am typing the light bulb is going off that maybe I should put the description into google translate. Anyway, this is another tea that I have a small sample of that I will savor and pray that I get to taste again someday. As for the taste, I am getting a black tea with hints of possibly oolong with a fruity finish.
