drank Thé de l'Abbaye by Dammann Freres
2594 tasting notes

There’s really nothing to read here except my confession of abject failure. I was so excited to try this…took it to work (Mistake #1) and scorched it—kettle water was too hot. Bitter, bitter, bitter! Added a little honey, hoping to neutralize it (Mistake #2) and then all there was was a cup of hot bitter honey water.

Before trying to doctor it, I did get some hints of the lovely little fruity notes that I’ve seen in the other reviews.

Sigh. derk, dearest, I apologize for my sloppy mishandling!
