drank Thé des Cigales by Dammann Freres
2342 tasting notes

I still love this one, but my friend who had tea with me today wasn’t crazy about it at first. It is a slightly more assertive, slightly dry base and she isn’t accustomed to that. I noticed how smooth and sweet this tasted when I had a bite of cream puff first, so I suggested that she add a wee bit of White Gold Honey and some milk to smooth out the base for her.

Once she did that, she warmed up to this tea and said that it now tasted like a delicious dessert. Next time, I will serve Coquelicot Gourmand with its smoother base so she can enjoy her tea without additions.

Her favorite tea of the day was Fruits d’Alsace, iced!

I am a music teacher, tutor, and former homeschool mom (25 years!) who started drinking loose leaf tea about ten years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens and oolongs.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.

I am also reviewing for Sororitea Sisters now!
