From THE O DOR

’25 décembre’ White is a white tea created by the Impertinent Parisian to discover or rediscover the delicious spicy flavors reminding us of Christmas’ spirit.

Perfumes of citrus fruits, dabs of spices, the season of Christmas is made of hundred-year-old traditions, marked with flavors and inescapable scents.

It is according to one of these traditions, influenced by the country from the east of France, that our house perfumed its tea ‘25 décembre’, marrying harmoniously both the essential notes of citrus fruits and those of cinnamon, clove or even nutmeg, to offer a drink we shall share in family all winter long, by the chimney, either around the table on D-day.

Based on a Great White tea from Nepal, this declension ‘white’ offers to this creation a surprising, precious, wintry flavor of high plateaus of mountain, at the same time vegetal and refined, it will offer you in mouth a refined, lightly astringent liqueur with a flowery heart.

The last of the The O Dor samples accompanying my order. Apparently they have at December 25th in almost every color. There’s a black, a green, and a red in addition to the white. Reminds me of my mom, who would buy a pair of shoes in several different colors. I don’t do that. OK, maybe once or twice, but that’s ALL.

They gave me the white one — I guess because I ordered a lot of black tea, so my samples were green, rooibos, this one, and mysteriously, Earl Grey. The dry leaves look like white peony (not that I’m an expert) with orange peel and other stuff in them. They smell like a fruitcake, or perhaps the more sophisticated sounding and generally better English version, a Christmas pudding.

There’s a dense, alcoholic (guessing rum) laced with fruit aroma coming from the steeped tea. The liquor is a burnished gold color with sencha-reminiscent particles suspended in it.

The taste is mildly fruit cake spicy, with an undercurrent of alcohol and a mellowness that borders on sweet that I am guessing is the contribution of the white tea. I feel like adding apple into it and calling it wassail.

It’s tasty and something that I might enjoy revisiting in winter. A bit too much for the coming summer heat, even with the white tea base.

I really enjoy seeing all the French flavored teas that have been popping up lately. Most of them sound so tasty!
