I am somewhat obsessed with violets (and refer to myself as a violet-ho at fragrance community websites), so naturally I could not resist trying Kusmi Violet.

The dried tea smells very violet. The liquor is a dark reddish brown—of course, I brewed it strong. The taste of the brew, however, is mostly black tea. I struggled to “taste” the violet, though I do believe that I caught some wafts off the the surface of the tea. Fortunately, the black tea used is pretty good, so I did enjoy this pot and will be drinking the rest of my tin. Perhaps I should sit and sniff the dried tea while I imbibe!

Speaking of tea and fragrance, I so desperately want to get my hands on the Guerlain teas! but from what I hear from Victoria at bois de jasmine, it’s only available from their flagship store in France, and you can’t even get it from their website!

I did not even know about the Guerlain teas, keychange! Sounds intriguing…

I enjoy the taste and smell of violins, which for me is not too strong and not too weak. The black tea itself, however, is quite bland and one dimensional. I still enjoy a cup from time to time, but with some higher grade tea, it could’ve been much better.

I love this tea! The violet smell and taste isn’t too strong, which is great, because it still tastes like tea. It is not bitter at all, very soft, a little bit sweet.

I drink it in the morning, no sugar, no milk, and it is a pure joy.
