From THE O DOR

‘Petite Ourse’, a flavored green tea with notes of citrus fruits and spices, that is part of the special edition ‘SOME AMONG US ARE CONTEMPLATING THE STARS’ (‘Certains parmi nous sont en train de regarder les étoiles’) offering you the story of 3 constellations, 3 moments of escape, 3 invitations to sublime the imagination.

North, let us discover the renowned ‘Petite Ourse’, with the brightest star, stamping the North Pole and whose cove points the way to the light. From the latin Ursa Minor, this constellation is in Greek Mythology none other than Arcas transformed into a ‘Petite Ourse’ (literally small bear), and condemned to walk around the North Pole by Zeus, his father.

As for THEODOR, ‘Petite Ourse’ is an occasion to immerse ourselves into the delicacies of a flavored green tea with major notes of mandarin and ginger as a reminder of our childhood and our dear Teddy Bear …our little stuffed bear, so reassuring and protective, to whom we dearly hold on for comfort.

Leaves smell of ginger and mandarin. Very citrus. It with an almost floral component. Almost overwhelming. I got this as a sample with my order. I love the mystery tea bags btw. And Theodor doesn’t skimp on the goodies when they ship.
Anyway. When steeped the mandarin is tamed..the ginger quite so. I used 8 oz water for this steep and feel I should have used 6 perhaps. While the aromatics are heavenly it’s a little weak in taste. I would have brewed it stronger. Preference I suppose. Those aromatics tho. So delicately blended. It’s elegant yet playful. Girly but not saccharine. Floral but in no way overwhelming. And the flavor (tho I may have gone stronger) are so balanced and beautifully done. Like sipping mandarin without the zing. Like a sweet orange flower. The ginger loses a lot of its kick and it mellows out to support the other flavors that meld so well here. No astringency. Quite lovely. Would probably be very refreshing over ice as well. No need to add anything to this tea. I would consider purchasing it in New York or someplace in states if I came across it but probably wouldn’t be too tempted to order from Paris
