Bonjour tout le monde! I’m back from Paris with a few nice teas in tow :) Didn’t manage to find any THE O DORs or Dammann stockists anywhere as the hotel wifi was so bad, I couldn’t search anything (although I saw plenty of Kusumi Teas and Nature & Décourvertes with their lovely tea tin range), so I simply went to the Carrousel du Louvre MF, the one I go to most frequently.

I bought three loose-leaf teas: would have bought more but you can’t buy less than 100g on most of their teas, and any more would have gotten too costly. So this, pear-flavoured, is just an interesting addition. I’m running out of apple tea and I love pear!

The leaves smell like pear drop sweets! Really delicious, and the brew smells exactly the same way. Brewed for five minutes as recommended, the black base is as strong as expected, but some of the sweetness is retained- in a really lovely way, too. It’s sort of in the background, but working very well with the tea flavour, too, which seems to be a little smoky and just sweet enough to take the fruit notes.

Very nice- and I can’t wait to try all the others I’ve bought!

Oh, how envious! Sounds like so much fun. And this sounds lovely – looking forward for your opinions on the other MF teas you got!

And Nature & Découvertes, I had to go check and I know those tins! I had been eyeing them at a shop for cosmetics and perfumes. A couple of those smell wonderfully tempting, though I have not tried any yet!

@cteresa N&D is a wonderful shop, isn’t it? I’m so tempted by the pistachio and almond one (never seen pistachio in a tea before) and the tins themselves are just gorgeous, not to mention the tea accessories… Let’s hope they keep that range going until next Christmas :D

The store I see those teas at is not called ND, it´s called Terre d´OC, this is their site http://www.terredoc.com/english/

but those are the same teas indeed! the teas smelled lovely and I love the retro-ishness of the tins. I did crave the uzbekistan tea (the almond and pistachio tea you mention) or the russian tea tins, though the teas whose smell I preferred I did not like the tins. Tne pains of being a tin-lover!

hummm girls, N&D teas are not bad but really their tins are better than their teas…

cteresa

I was afraid of precisely that Ysaurella! I do not think I will buy it!

Ahhh Ysaurella, thankfully you can tell us this before we give in to the beautiful tins! XD
