2 Tasting Notes


I find that this tea enchants and grows upon the drinker. Its pronounced smoky notes invigorate at first sip, and personally, becomes more calming as the tea cools.

I would describe it as a smooth tea, goes down easily, with a beautifully balanced body and after-taste, and a certain pleasant tang that blooms up at the end of the sip (or gulp!). The scent is ever so slightly floral – though I confess a limited vocabulary at this stage of my tea appreciation journey.

Perhaps influenced by its description and categorisation, I only drink this tea in the late evening. It only seems fitting.

Flavors: Floral, Smoke

They list it as an afternoon tea in their tea chart! I love it as well.


Heya! Could you find a link to the tea chart for me? I had a quick look but had no luck.


Ah, sorry, I do not think it is online. It´s a big sheet of paper, A3 size or larger, covered in plastic at both sides, with the list of tea on both sides (one side is mostly flavoured teas, the other the single origins) with the tea prices, all very close printed, that they have at their Marais shop on the counters. You can´t really see all the tea cannisters they have and they do not have samples out for everything (it will be a good 600 or 700 varieties I think, of which maybe they 200 or 300 samples out) so the list. The flavoured teas, some of it is organized by time of the day, and I noticed Tzar Alexandre was on the afternoon teas!
