From Harney & Sons

Vieux Paris translates into Old Paris in French. This blend is our original recipe Paris tea. Mike Harney has enjoyed many a pot of tea in the famous Parisian tea shops. In homage to the city, he created what’s become one of Harney & Sons’ most popular and beloved blends worldwide. Paris is a fruity black tea with vanilla and caramel flavors, and a hint of lemony Bergamot. The aroma is delightful!

Ingredients:
Black tea, oolong tea, black currant flavor, vanilla flavor, bergamot oil, caramel flavor. Contains natural & artificial flavors.

It seems I prepared it completely wrong last time!

New preparation method: 3 grams; 90°C water; 2 minutes steeping

All the too strong black tea notes… puff, they are gone. Yes, it is still nice base, quite strong too. But the flavour of the tea is different! I do notice mostly the lightly tart blackcurrant. In aroma there is mostly the vanilla combined with caramel. Like a caramel topping on the vanilla ice cream! The caramel sweetness is in the flavour as well.

Shame I couldn’t notice the bergamot, but overall it was working together! Maybe the base was slightly lighter because of this citrus — but not noticeable as in Earl Grey. I have last, not whole 3 grams, so certainly I have to try to focus on that fruit.

Ashmanra, thank you for sample of this. It is just too sensitive and I have prepared it wrongly last time. 60 →72

I am glad it improved a bit for you!

Looking back I was surprised I was steeping flavoured black tea for 5 minutes! That steep must be very strong in black tea notes and probably overpowered the rest.

Yay I’m glad it changed with different parameters!

I am happy to find that out too! Better late with last session coming than never :)
