I’m so happy I received a big tin of this tea as present !
My mom visited the museum Cernuschi in Paris (dedicated to the Asian Arts) and this tea is a special creation from the tea company George Cannon for one of the exhibition so she bought me a tin !

The tea base is an high quality oolong.
The leaves are so beautiful with all these wonderful berries and flowers.
The scent is more fruity than floral to me, same for the taste of the liquor.
To me the leading role goes to goji berries and citrus in a second role.
A very pleasant tea for an afternoon.
Saying this, this is not my favorite Cannon tea but I only had 4 and all were very impressive :)
I must say I am more and more impressed and interested by this brand and I need to continue tasting their creations.

Cannon does seem to have amazing names for teas….


you’re right, the name of their teas are often amazing but you know it’s almost the case of all the French tea brands…it’s really on our DNA to use references to literature and history …even for marketing ! In Portugal it may be the same ? You have really an amazing list of great poets and writers in your country.


We do not really have any tea blenders ( a couple of tea plantations though. Most famous one has a name I do not know what it means, other two have generic “harbor” names, one is pretty harbor which is even our name for Taiwan and a bunch or other names. ). I guess the chance to be fancier might be with wine names. So maybe !

Thank you VariaTEA for the sample!

I was pretty sure I’d tried this one before, but looks like this is my first tasting. I must be mixing up the name with one of the many other French teas I’ve had the fortune of trying.

I cold brewed this one, but I kind of regret doing so because I really, really didn’t like it. I had an impossible time getting over the intensely buttery oolong that engulfed each sip paired with this really off putting sour note at the finish of the sip. Most of this got pitched, honestly. I think hot prep would have been better; I doubt it would have drawn out the same level of nasty from the base. But I guess I wont know until I put that theory to test; it may be a while though…

I need to forget this experience/distance myself from it first.

So I don’t think I know what 1/2 the ingredients are in this tea but what I do know is it tastes like oolong and not much else. I suppose that is okay for some but I am just not a lover of oolong so I am thinking this is probably not for me. Still, it is always fun to try new things so thank you Sil for the opportunity!

Now back to studying…kill me now :(

From Sil, this one is an oolong with various fruits. It has a tart & tangy lightly sweet character. There is a vegetal quality to it as well. I’m tea starved, I haven’t had a cup for hours, so at this point I’ll probably drink anything, but luckily this is actually a nice cup.
Not somethings I’d stock, but nice to try.


Sil should have sent the rest of the sample I sent her and I’m very glad she did as you liked this lovely Oolong. This is kind of collector tea as it was made especially for the Musée Cernuschi in Paris and for a very specific temporary exhibition.

That’s cool! What kind of exhibit was it?
Also, I love that we are trading even when we don’t realize it! :)


it was an exhibition dedicated to the asian paintings from the shanghaï school(1840-1920).The cernuschi museum in the museum of Asian arts in Paris.

I have to say…this one was a little bizarre :) While i am not a HUGE fan of oolongs, i do enjoy them from time to time. I also really like fruity teas. this tea confuses me though… it’s like LOOK i’m an OOLONG! oh wait.. TRICKED YOU! hahahaha. yeah…


it is clearly an Oolong, a fruity Oolong :)
