Rainy day outside and I am on steep nr 4 for this tea. Very mellow pumpkin green more oolong taste type. A sweet flavor lingerst at the last sip that makes you reach for the next cup, and the next, and the next. Not one hint of bitterness. Now I don’t know what to do with those meh GABA green teas that I have in my cupboard after trying this one…This is to be re-ordered.

This is the only Earl Grey I own now. Along the years, as my inquest for good crisp clean, and not bitter earl grey had stopped to the first mediocre earl grey I would find, I discovered this brand walking by the aisle of a farmer’s shop. I was out of tea since we just moved back to Europe and my teas were all in the moving truck, I decided to give this a try. It was a huge hit, but now it has become a memory-associated souvenir picture: A tired person after relocating across the ocean finds her perfect tea. She stops everything that day, sits down and grabs a book, and enjoys a french rainy spring day.

I have stopped spending money with other companies. It’s been 4 years since I left Europe, and with all my endless search to find a good local tea company, I just gave up. I ordered my teas now from dammann freres and mariage freres, and I am happy again. This tea is just delicious!

This tea never leaves me unsatisfied. When you open the tin is like you open a box of an Eau de parfum. Typical Parisian I would say from the way they designed it. The first infusion was 3 min, not my cup of tea…threw it away and thought the tin would make a fine tea storage. Decided to give it one more chance, infused for 4 min, and to my surprise, DELICIOUS! It was like eating apples sprinkled with orange juice on top. I drank it 30 min ago and I still have the wonderful taste in my mouth. Very smooth, very enjoyable, and with zero bitterness.

Flavors: Apple, Citrus Fruits, Orange

I love taking this tea while reading a book before going to bed. It’s just so good. I wish I had bought more before I left Europe. I have the tin and the kettle next to my night stand and it is just the best relaxing tea ever…. and it does bring me memories of Fall in Paris…

The first time I tried it it was like: ouch, that is a strong bergamot taste. I added some milk and it was better. It’s perfect for mornings like 6.am or so…but I would think before buying again.

I’ve been drinking tea since at a very young age. My favorite memories are growing up with a tea ( its actually a herbal tea) called Sideritis mountain tea. Mom used to serve with a toast and feta cheese on the side for breakfast. I remember most of the time, going to bed happy because there was always tea in the morning. Years went by and my journey with tea changed. I started preferring more and more earl grey teas, then flavored black teas only, then pure sencha and then I made the discovery of pure High altitude taiwanese teas. I will have occasionally Mariage Freres, Dammann Freres, Palais de the and Comptoir du The. I am obsessed with collecting teas, tea containers, tea pots, tea cups anything tea
