Paris is home to some of the most well known tea companies in the world. Mariage Frères, Damman Fréres,Le Palais des Thés, Betjeman & Barton, Fauchon, Ladurée, and of course Kusmi Tea all call Paris their home. While I'm there I'm looking forward to sampling tea from as many of them as possible. Since I'm flying out this weekend I thought I would treat myself a little bit early and break into my recent order from Kusmi Tea. I've been dying to sample some more of their blends since I first tried Earl Grey Polish Blend N°18 during one of the many traveling tea boxes I participated in last year.
I didn't even need to take a sip of the tea to know I was going to fall in love with this blend. The spicy aroma is very enticing and smells faintly of licorice. The scent alone was enough to hook me, but the first sip was pure heaven. The combination of pink peppercorn and cardamom exploded on my tongue. The licorice adds a much needed sweetness to help balance out the spicy bite and the flavor lingers for some time on the back of your tongue. It's quite an intriguing and aptly named blend, one that deserves a permanent home in my tea cabinet.
Would I order this again? Yes. I can't wait to pick up more while I'm in France. The small tin I have from the wellness sampler I purchased isn't going to last long.
