A really pleasant, sort of French seeming tea. Good for breakfast in the shadow of Notre Dame or a pleasant afternoon on the “Boule Miche”

Wow, I’m surprised how much I enjoyed this sample of this black tea blend. There is nothing unique that stands out that should be so outstanding – but there is a certain something that’s indefinable. I’m put in the french phrase for it but I never know how to spell or pronounce it, silly me.
It’s such a great blend- I’m hoping with my next sample test I’ll enjoy it just as much. If so, this will definitely be a full container order for me soon. It would make a nice breakfast blend with no milk, it’s not brisk/bold, but it’s good for morning. It’s a great afternoon and casual blend as well for these reasons.
