drank Palacio Oriental by Soins de The
61 tasting notes

I found tea shop when I was recently on vacation in beautiful Valencia. It is a great store, if you want to see pictures you can check out their site http://www.pekoe.com.es/soinsdethe/index2.php

I asked the shopkeeper which one was his favorite and this tea was one of them. The apricot is very fragrant in this tea with some floral notes from the cornflowers and sunflowers both dried and once brewed. My kitchen smells great just walking in and there is only a cup left in the pot and the leaves sitting in the basket.

I brewed it with boiling water and steeped for 2 min and 45 sec. It is a dark caramel color once brewed and tastes mostly of apricot but does have a nice tea base. It is very smooth and I liked it hot and at room temp. I haven’t actually tried it iced, yet.

Boiling 2 min, 45 sec

Grew up in Texas, lived and worked in Australia and New Zealand for a year. Now I am back stateside and living in Oregon. I drink most any kind of tea but blacks are my favorites.

“Tea is the taste of my land: it is bitter and warm, strong, and sharp with memory. It tastes of longing. It tastes of the distance between where you are and where you come from. Also it vanishes—the taste of it vanishes from your tongue while your lips are still hot from the cup. It disappears, like plantations stretching up into the mist.” Little Bee (Chris Cleave)
