I am having this tea in honor of the wonderful reviews of French Teas that Dinosara is posting lately! Delightful!!!
It entered my mind that I have not had this one plain as of yet. I think I had a plain second steep, with sugar, but… today is the day for an absolutely sans additions cup!
It is utterly delicious. I love how much more pronounced the floral aspect is, but it is still so strawberry, and so… not chocolate not vanilla but… something! Something so good, subtle and French :) I love it.
I once read someone else’s review (not on Steepster, maybe on Chowhound?) that said “Don’t you dare put milk and sugar into this tea!!!” and my feathers were ruffled because… strawberry shortcake tea!!! But now I understand why that person might have emphatically stated this. You do miss the nuances with milk and sugar. Point taken :)
Also, completely different French tea company, but want! want! want!:
