Was given this as an afterthought in a café in Lyon, where I’d purchase a set meal (the only thing available on a Saturday or Sunday) that included an additional pot of tea. I think because they were busy and I was the “demanding Amercian”, I was given this. It’s been a few days now (feels like a lifetime ago! it’s been four days) so I tried it.

Uh….

Well, it’s nice. Nice for someone else. (All I got was a faint apple thang, maybe something like a Shirley Temple. Is there grenadine in here?)

Flavors: Apple, Grenadine

Sundays in France can be interesting. When I spent over a month in Montpellier your choices were two Restaurants, McDonalda or the Kebab places everything else was closed. I loved the time I spent in Lyon. I hope you enjoyed/are enjoying it.

I was only there for the weekend, so it was tricky to really explore. I did however find the Gaul which used to house 10,000 people from around the world — more than 2000 years ago! Amazing.

Bio

A few years ago, the obsession with tea started. The cupboard got bigger and bigger, more swaps occurred, group buys, secret rendezvous with local teapassionistas… and that’s how you end up with 500+ different kinds of tea in your home. At one time.

Almost all of the tea was given away, sold, or otherwise shared. A few relics still remain. I now travel full time with only two carryon bags to my name. One quarter of those bags are tea.

It’s still a challenge to avoid the chipmunk-like hoarding of The Teas, yet, the lightness of being from having so little compels me more.

If I have enough, I’m happy to share. If I’m in your area, I’d love to swap, meet for tea, and explore together.

As for the day-to-day stuff, I’m focused almost entirely on Love, (yes, with a capital L), Spirit/Self, transformation, travel and my writing and speaking work.

What kinds of teas do I normally like?

YES: flavored teas, fruity, dessert, chai, and spicy (REALLY spicy).

A FONDNESS FOR: all white teas, malty black teas, any herbal or medicinal teas, strange/weird teas you can only get in one place.

ALLERGIC TO: strawberries, lavender

DISLIKES: any added sugars, grains, lapsang souchong, and overly floral teas – I might enjoy a Jasmine Green every once in a while, but unless it’s a creamy floral tea (think roses in a chai, or the smoothness of a floral note in a French tea), I’ll likely pass. Earl Greys are a hit or miss with me; heavy on the cream or fruit notes and I might like it, heavy on the blergamot and I definitely won’t.
