drank French Blend by Tea Time
103 tasting notes

Ok so I guess I am not a huge fan of florals. I like chinese Jasmine on it’s own, and earl grey but this is one interesting tea! I bought some of this to compare to the Versailles Earl Grey that Tea Time did for my niece. It seems to have way too many flavours going on for me to really enjoy this blend. Sometimes I taste Earl grey sometimes jasmine and sometimes I guess the lavender or rose. Wow quite different, not gross or anything but not quite my thing either. Not sure if this will grow on me…maybe I have to develop my palate more.

ETA: as the tea cooled down a bit the flavours balanced out and blended together better. I’ll have to remember to let it cool a bit before I drink it next time.

I am pretty new to trying different types of loose leaf teas. Growing up we only ever had Chinese restaurant tea or bagged orange pekoe. Later on I tried genmai cha at the Japanese restaurants and added that permanently to my tea cupboard.

So far, I like oolongs and black. Most often I drink straight teas but I do like some flavoured ones as long as they don’t taste fakey or chemically. I would like to try more greens, whites and more Rooibos’ as well as anything that doesn’t have caffeine in it to add to my cupboard.

An attempt at a rating system:
90-100 worthy of being permanently stocked in my cupboard
80-89 great tea would love to have in my tea cupboard but probably in smaller quantities
70-79 very nice tea but I don’t necessarily have to have it
60-69 will drink it but not choose to stock it
50-59 prefer not to drink it unless it is all I have
<50 total miss for my tastes
