drank The du Tigre by Le Palais des Thes
1147 tasting notes

A friend went to Paris and brought me back a bag of this stuff. She was told by the sales guy that lapsangs weren’t legal in the EU because of something to do with the way they get their smokey flavor. Strange info considering every other tea shop I visited in Paris has a lapsang. I think my friend got the new guys who doesn’t know his tea very well yet.
I was expecting not to like it as I haven’t been impressed by the selection of PDTs that I’ve had and was happily surprised to find that I really dig this one! It’s smooth, smokey and fairly well balanced. I’ve probably had a cup of it 4 out of the last 5 days and can already see a dent in the giant bag!

My name is Dustin and I like tea.

I’m an added flavor kind of tea fan, but have had a growing appreciation for plain. I want my tea to remind me of cookies and cakes with coconut and almond slices with a hint of chocolate drizzled on top. I want dancing ponies and flying monkeys shooting off fireworks! And no hibiscus. Hibiscus is the devil.
