This one is a part of my Theodor order arrived on Saturday.
I ordered it because I love la galette des rois ! The Epiphany cake (do you call this a Twelfth-Night pancake or cake in English ?)
This is a black tea flavoured with marzipan.
The dry leaf scent is absolutely fantastic, this is an amaretto tea ! and the colours are so beautiful : red and orange small petals of flowers are mixed with a beautiful dark tea.
I was wondering if the taste would be as nice as the scent…the liquor scent is very promising and taking the first sip…release ! yes!!!!! it’s so good ! this is a liquid marzipan, with the perfect taste of a bitter almond.
The tea base is really smooth and mellow, no bitterness at all, no astringency, it’s a so sweet tea.
You know I am a sucker for almond teas…so it may be because I love so much almonds that I love it so much but I do really think this is blended perfectly with a wonderful and ideal tea base (I would like to know what it is…a Keemun maybe ?)
I am so happy to have bought 100g of this one !
Flavoured black tea with major notes of almond paste.
As perfect Parisians, we celebrate the Epiphany around a twelfth night cake that we all share with our family. A Holy day which became secular throughout the time. I appreciate finding these particular and divine notes throughout the year. I can do so, tasting a tea that I enjoy drinking by myself… To whom does it pay Tribute? To the Heroes, to the Kings? No, to the ones, as me, who know that there is nothing better than… caring only for oneself!Ideal brewing time: 4 to 5’ Water temperature: 90°C (194°F)
