Palais Des Thes Advent Calender Day 1:
I’ve never tried this company before so that’s exciting and really haven’t tried any Parisian tea companies either. The little cloth tea sachet is cute and new to me as well. The smell of this sachet before steeping smells exactly like a DavidsTea tea I’ve tried before. I can’t remember what one but it has to be either a fruit tisane/herbal or a fruity tropical green tea/mate that they offer.
I followed the company’s steeping parameters for this cup.
The taste is quite different than the DavidsTea that I am reminded of though it is mainly the mate that I am tasting. The flavor is light as well which I’ve heard is common of Parisian teas. I can’t taste the green tea really at all but do get some butteriness from it. The passionfruit is quite delicate as well. The sachet mentions acai but I don’t taste that in this tea at all. You can definitely feel the effects of the caffeine from the mate in this one though. I don’t feel the need to purchase this one but it wasn’t a bad cup at all. Just not the most interesting I’d say. I’m not sure what to rate this one yet so my undecided rating is 50. I wish Steepster had a flavor that just said mate. I should have probably drank this earlier in the day since I have a Piano Performance tomorrow morning for school.
Flavors: Butter, Grass, Herbaceous, Passion Fruit, Tropical
