drank Paris by Harney & Sons
2377 tasting notes

It seems like it has been a while since I had Paris tea. I had tons of it, then bought a pound of Tower of London which is very similar (but maybe a little more beloved for me?) and waited to replenish my Paris until that was all gone. My son-in-law tried this one and loved it so I had purchased some for him as well a while back. It is a real people pleaser.

One fun thing – I had made a pot of this and a pot of Keemun from Zen for tea party yesterday. There was a lot of Keemun left and just a little splash of Paris, so I combined them in one pot and put it in the fridge to reheat for my breakfast. It was really good and the Paris flavor came through like gangbusters even though there was so little in there. I really need to try mixing this up with some of my other teas more!

Paris from Harney and Sons, Yunnan Dian Hong Golden Tip from Teavivre, and Puerh teas are my two best friends when it comes to recruiting new tea people.

Interesting side note – our nearest real tea shop is Tin Roof Teas in Raleigh and today they posted on Facebook that so many people stop in asking for H&S Paris that they decided to make their own blend. I plan to buy a bit and give it a try next time I am up that way.

A majority of my friends go out of their way to have a cup of Paris, since it’s always in stock (perhaps I’ll start charging them for it). It’s a nice tea. Very smooth, rich, mellow(?), creamy and dessert-like. It has definitely helped me reduce the amount of sugar/desserts these past few months, so I find it necessary to have it around.

It does go well with Keemun, Ceylon, and Assam teas. However, with an Assam, I would use more Paris than Assam due to the smokiness that Assams tend to have.

This just appears to be a very popular flavor combo. Our little Savoy shop down in Arkansas has a Paris Morning that has the bergamot-caramelly thing going.

Bio

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!

My avatar is a mole in a teacup! Long story…
