A delicate tea full of well balanced fruity flavours and flowery perfumes. The fruits blend together quite nicely but still they remain distinguishable. The overall result is very sweet, so I tend to use only a little sugar (a little less than 1 tsp) to bring out the flavour.

Was at the local French cafe and wanted to try something new. While this wouldn’t have caught my eye normally, it’s the holidays, so why not!

This smells like a genuine, fresh-baked apple pie with plenty of cinnamon and sugar. And there’s a whiff of a clean, crisp tea base underneath it all. The taste itself is a little lighter on the apple and spice, but sweet and smooth. Looking at older reviews, I wonder if they hadn’t improved the tea base over the past few years. Overall, it’s nice and cozy and not too in-your-face!

Thank you to my sister Sil for sending this sample my way.
I’m usually not a fan of Ceylon teas, but contrary to most, this one didn’t have that typical iced tea flavor to it, and was enjoyable to drink with a certain richness that made me think of dry roasted nuts. It is rather on the astringent side, however, which I don’t mind so much, except that it tends to hit my tummy in a rough way, and in this case, in spite of a full breakfast, I could still feel it’s effects, but not so much as to lose my breakfasts or anything like that, LOL.

doh. sorry for the upset tummy..but glad you also found this one a little different.

I had bought a bunch of samplers of Le Palais des thes from Verizon recently and decided to give this one a try. I love the aluminum cylindrical packaging. Lovely tea. I see some flat dragonwell-type leaves mixed with dry mint and blue cornflowers. The scent is a mild mix of mint and bergamot. Upon brewing, the liquid was a light yellow color. Lovely, fruity and minty scent. I brewed this at a cooler temperature, which brewed up a light taste. I really like this tea. Nothing was overbearing and I could taste hints of bergamot and mint. There was no astringency to this tea too.

Eh. I think the mate comes through strongest, and I don’t particularly care for mate.

Easily the most prestigious Earl Grey I’ve ever had. It tastes amazingly modern with it’s Yunnan base tea and this gentle Bergamot texturing; it’s got incredible depth. This is an Earl Grey for people who love Earl Grey as it’s both immediately familiar but absolutely unique all at the same time. The only thing I would say is this isn’t a breakfast tea, it’s just too spectacular to waste on a mouthful of eggs, bacon and potato’s. Enjoy it in the early hours of the afternoon, it will really set you up for the rest of your day.

Flavors: Bergamot

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 3 min, 30 sec 3 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

This was a delicious cuppa on a cold rainy spring day. The chocolate and vanilla tastes fairly natural and the rooibos base wasn’t overwhelming or too woodsy. If I ever ordered from this company, this would likely make it into the cart.

This is okay – I’ve been drinking less tea lately, so maybe my palate just needs to come back around, but I find it thin in taste and a bit… plain. Not what I expected from Palais des Thés. I like a more robust cuppa in the AM. Perhaps on the second or third taste of this canister it will get better.

Almond, not quite marzipan almond, but a sweet almond, vs. a crunchy almond. And oh, is this good. I wish this came in a caffeinated version. This is by far the best tea I’ve had. Vanilla almond love.

There are some teas you buy because they smell amazing, and that initial amazement fades over time. But there are some—like this one—that retain its crisp, minty fragrance and surprises you every time you open up the tin. I adore mint, so I might be biased. And I tend to only drink this one when I’m sickly, and the smell alone really clears up your sinuses. But even when I’m working at 100% capacity, this tea is a delight.

I’ll admit, it’s less “green” and more “mint.” If you’re not a huge fan of mint, it won’t be for you. The scent is overwhelming (I say that lovingly), and the fragrance fills your mouth and your sinuses. Despite the hot temperature, it’s cooling on the way down. The green base is pretty average, but you’re probably not picking up this one for the taste of actual tea.

So much mint. Everything is mint.
