With Valentine's Day soon upon us a box of tea is the ideal present. Especially a box of tea from France. Imagine the delight on someone's face when they realize they can start their day with a little touch of France.
I am a huge fan of tea and start every morning with a cup of tea. Palais des Thés was kind enough to send me a box of le matin (the morning). With a selection of 6 teas every morning cup of tea will be a French treat. The box has a lovely assortment of 8 bags of each of the following teas. There is a flavour for every mood.
Thé des Moines: a floral blend inspired by a Tibetan traditional recipe.
Grand Yunnan Imperial: a beautiful Chinese black tea.
Sencha Ariake: a delicate Japanese green tea.
Big Ben: an English blend of black teas.
Thé des Lords: an Earl Grey black tea with bergamot
Gout Russe 7 agrumes: a black tea with citrus fruits
So which is my favourite? Given I always start my day with Earl Grey, The des Lords is my initial pick. Each tea is delightful. Gout Russe 7 agrumes is quite refreshing with its citrus fruits. Whether there is a Francophile or tea afficiando in your life this is the perfect Valentine's Day. What is best is that there tea is available in the U.S. Yes flying to France for some tea would be so much fun but you can visit their store in NYC.
Merci a Palais de Thes for the lovely box. It is the perfect way to start the day and contribute to Dreaming of France hosted by Paulita at An Accidental Blog.
