drank Paris by Harney & Sons
358 tasting notes

Smells sublime when dry, Marco Polo-ish almost. But steeped, just a cup and I am quite uncertain. I feel the bergamot putting it firmly with earlgrey-ish territory (and out of Marco polo territory) and a vanilla/caramel taste. Base tea has some oomph but maybe too much oomph, it is tasting astringent to me. This is just not working for me. Tap water today smelled horribly of bleach, that can not help, must try this with bottled water and shorter steeping time.

205 °F / 96 °C 3 min, 45 sec

Inconstant tea drinker – I mostly drink tea when not too hot. I hang around steepster much more frequently in (northern hemisphere) cold season. Experimenting with cold steeping, for summer.

- Teas -

I like all sorts of tea, flavoured and unflavoured, though I am picky.

I am one of those people who actually loves Lapsang Souchong. I am not crazy about Earl Grey, in general. I don´t quite get Darjeeling teas, but I am exploring.

I like rooibos, though not all bases. I loathe hibiscus. I do not like fennel/liquorice/anise in blends or teas with chicory. I am picky about what I consider true cinnamon.

As you can probably tell from my cupboard, the brands I find more interesting right now are Mariage Fréres and Thé-o-Dor.

I am always willing to try anything new. I am now particularly interested in single origins.
