From Moons Coffee and Tea

Tour de France is a special blend of Sri Lankan, Indian Assams, and Kenya tea with an overtone of vanilla and flowers, like a colorful day in the French countryside.

Interesting.

Black tea with different types of flowers, the most obvious being lavender. There is also some vanilla flavor added. I don’t know anything other than that because I picked this up at a local tea shop and before I got a chance to talk with the owner, the place got busy. Has a fresh spring scent to the dry leaves with a hint of vanilla fragrance.

The aroma of the steeped tea doesn’t excite me and almost smells musty. But once I started taking sips I noticed it tasted better than it smelled. Has in interesting floral taste that isn’t perfume-like, neither is it floral like an oolong might have, and the vanilla makes a very subtle appearance. Lavender is the flower taste that sticks out the most but it isn’t the only one I taste. It definitely is an interesting taste and sorta reminds me of a ladies garden party. The mix of the different black teas isn’t overpowering and has a recommended steep time of 2 minutes which works well.
