drank Spice imperial by Lindfield
408 tasting notes

You may be intrigued by this company …as I was when I bought it in a tea shop (along with my George Cannon teas).
This is French company (of course I thought first it was English with such a name !) and a company based in Brittany as they argue they want to be the first tea brand of Brittany, it sounds nice as Brittany is more reputed for its cider, kouign amann, pan cakes, caramel beurre salé and butter….and and and sooooo much splendid food specialties ! I love Brittany…I wish I can live in Vannes or in Rochefort en Terre…

So yes, Brittany needs a tea brand !

This is a Christmas tea, what’s better in the middle of May ?
It’s a very special Christmas tea because the main flavour is really orange, then a delicate vanilla and behind but very behind spices (with a very discrete and a very very very discrete clove)
The tea base is really smooth and mellow, we can taste it very well, it is not hidden behind the flavours.

This is a very nice blend and a very different Christmas tea as the main guest is a perfectly blended Orange, very natural.

That’s true Oranges are a Christmas symbol as they were often in the past the only gift. That’s nice to remember this sometimes.So thanks to this company to remind us with a such lovely tea.

First, please forgive me for my English and all the grammatical mistakes you’ll find in my posts.
As English isn’t my mother tongue it sometimes makes things more difficult to express cleverly and accurately what I feel.

I was mainly in black flavoured teas, green as well if not bitter.
I’m now drinking much straight teas because my palate is now developed enough to appreciate them .

My favourite brands are : Taiwan tea Crafts, Teavivre, Mariage Frères,Theodor,Butiki Teas,Dammann Frères, Betjeman & Barton.
My ratings are as follow :

100 to 95 : my darlings; always in my cupboard (or very often ! )

94 to 90 : Excellent tea

89 to 80 : very good tea, a pleasure to drink it

79 to 70: not bad even quite nice, why not having it sometimes, but well,it’s not so urgent !

69 to 50 : Meh, deceptive or just not for me – but has some qualities

49 to 30 : I just don’t appreciate it

Under 30 : is this thing supposed to be tea ?!?!?
