I spent a weekend with friends in France recently, where I drank this tea, or rather infusion after dinner.
Although I lived 6 years in France myself, I wasn´t familiar with this seemingly very popular brand “Les 2 marmottes”. It´s true that quite often French have a “tisane” (herbal tea) after their evening meal, at least that´s the case with most of my French friends, while I prefer a real tea. Also, I tend to buy loose leaf tea, while they most often have boxes with individually wrapped teabags.
The company is based in the Alps and has a nice presentation with 2 marmots in front of some snowed mountain peaks; the teabags are colourful and indicate ingredients and time of steeping and the names often use puns.
This herbal tea contains 45% of elderflower, making it quite delicate. This might be ideal in a drink to have just before going to bed, I prefer a tea with some more character…
