102 Tasting Notes
This is okay – I’ve been drinking less tea lately, so maybe my palate just needs to come back around, but I find it thin in taste and a bit… plain. Not what I expected from Palais des Thés. I like a more robust cuppa in the AM. Perhaps on the second or third taste of this canister it will get better.
I’ve never been a huge fan of Darjeeling’s and I can’t say this one completely converted me, but I can see its appeal after drinking this. The cup was pleasing. Rich and strong flavors, which I like, and just a bit floral and bitter on the end. I think if this was to join my daily rotation, I would add a bit of honey and it would be perfect.
This was pleasant enough, but I can’t say the flavor was unique for me to want to return to it or crave it. It seemed like a fairly basic green tea, which is a bit disappointing for Le Palais des Thes. Still it was fine enough for the one cup. I’m glad it came in a sample pack though, rather than me having a whole supply of it.
I usually don’t drink fruit forward teas, but this was highly rated in a travelling teabox I received, so I gave it a try – it’s surprisingly good! By no means could I drink it with the frequency I drink black tea, but it would make a good dessert or just afternoon treat. Made with real raspberries and juice, it tastes like…well, a raspberry.
