drank Paris by Harney & Sons
1128 tasting notes

I’ve been craving this tea haha so today is bit the bullet and made more of my limited supply haha. I made it in my timolino, the sachet steeped for 4 minutes, and it’s good, but not nearly as delicious as in a cup. Maybe the extra steeping time I added makes the black tea a bit stronger than I like, but it is still pretty tasty. The fruit aftertaste is still there, as well as the lemony bergamot hit at the start, just not as pleased with the middle taste, a bit strong. Ah well, still really like this tea, and it’s satisfying my Paris craving as it should :). See previous notes on this tasty tea.

Oh, and after reading about tea mistakes in the forum yesterday, I finally did it… I tossed the small remaining amount of sweet dreams by davidstea as it has been bitter the last 5 times I made it. I hate wasting tea, but I wouldn’t even share that one with anyone it was just too bitter, and life is too short for bad tea! /endconfession

Hello all, I am an electrical engineer (read:NERD :D), who is a bit obsessed with tea! I discovered loose tea in 2011, DAVIDsTEA in 2012 and it took off from there. I really started drinking/enjoying tea because it was excellent to take to class in the morning and because I can’t handle coffee! (unless it’s a really good cappuccino or latte, or decent decaf haha)

I enjoy a variety of teas – current favorites being ripe and raw pu’erhs, chinese black teas and herbal/green rooibos blends. I also enjoy white, green, and oolong teas, although I tend to drink them more in the warmer months. I have also tried matcha and guayusa, but I don’t drink them too often as I am a bit sensitive to caffeine. As a result I don’t drink black teas as often as I used to, but in moderation I can still enjoy a wide variety of teas.

Oh, and I have a severe peanut allergy and try to avoid most other nuts, just to be safe. Limits my tea choices a bit, but that’s ok. However I have tried almonds and found out I can eat them, so I have been trying a few teas with them in them.
