This is an exquisite tea – absolutely my new favorite. It’s flavor is fresh and unique. Each floral note dances across the tongue. Acte II is the perfect name, because it is not a one-act tea, but a true bouquet of flavors – the initial act, and then the second act. Love, love, love it!

I’m already making plans to purchase more and don’t intend to ever be without it :)

Where’d you pick up this brand? The flavors sound amazing.

I ordered it from The Urban Tea Merchant in Vancouver, BC. Had to pay international shipping, but it’s well worth it :)

teaplz

Awesome! They sell it at www.urbantea.com, I’ve noticed. Hrm. It’s pretty expensive, but it might be worth it! Thanks for the info!

Tamara Fox

If you buy it loose leaf rather than in the tin, it’s only $12, which it’s well worth. I’ll be buying the tin next :)

Doulton

If you make a big order, it’s cheaper to buy from France than from Canada. Avoid the costly tins, as Tamara Fox says.

I had this tea just now in a patisserie, so I didn’t know how they had steeped it. The dry leaves were wonderfully fragrant – a sweet blend of fruity and floral notes!! But the liquor was less amazing. The green tea was very refreshing, and the rose flavour was pleasant too. It’s a lovely tea but… where were the fruits?? They seemed to have vanished! I imagine that the fruity flavours, if present, might take the tea to another level. Quite a pity huh. After reading the notes by other reviewers, it appears that the liquor served to me might not be an accurate reflection of the tea. Would write another note if I have the chance to taste it again later!

While I was in in Vancouver my aunt treated me to the ‘Petit Thé’ served at the Urban Tea Merchant and this was the tea I chose to go with it.

I expected something a bit more fruity and floral from the smell of the dry tea, but instead it tasted more of bergamot and citrus accompanied by berries with a floral undertone. None the less it went quite nicely with all the cute, dainty, little goodies that came with it.

I did notice however, that as I drank it, particularly after there was nothing left to eat with it, the bergamot flavour intensified until it pretty much dominated my palate which wasn’t really what I’d anticipated (or wanted).

Winter is coming! Or at least autumn is, you should have seen what it rained this morning. Summer is on the way out and I was finally in the mood to make some tea. This is a new purchase, from this very summer, and my first, fast tasting of it

First, this smells like the french-est tea ever blended. French teas, do you have a mental idea of what that style is? This is precisely it, like the most paradigmatic french tea ever. (well, and there is Vert de Provence as well. Maybe a few others, Thé au Tibet also comes to mind as the most french imaginable Earl Grey tea, but no other tea I ever had, and I have been having a lot of french teas, is more French tea than this). Really sublime perfume, far too complicated to categorize – fruity, flowery, with tea underneath. And it was one of the few The-o-dor teas I could buy locally and hello, welcome Acte II.

But at my first try I suspect lotus is an ingredient even if they do not explicitly mention it. And lotus in tea is for me like tuberose in perfumes – it ruins things. I did not quite love it as much as I loved the smell, but I must experiment some more.

It is still a wonderful, balanced, quality tea by the way.
