Tea Review: Les Amants Miniatures by Palais des Thes
If you like me will not celebrate Valentine's Day with champagne, you might consider the limited edition Valentine's Day Thé des Amants or Lovers gift set from Palais des Thés. The gift set of three flavored teas plus sugar hearts would make a sweet gift in its pretty presentation. Or you could serve all three teas throughout the day.
Each tea - a rooibos, black, and green - is flavored similarly with apple, almond, cinnamon, vanilla, and ginger.
The most successful blend is is the Rooibos des Amants. It is reminiscent of a masala chai and if you are caffeine sensitive makes a wonderful dessert tea.
Dried strawberry is the lingering note from the Thé des Amants Black Tea. I would recommend this tea with chocolate covered strawberries.
The warm spices do not overwhelm the green tea; they add a bit of sweetness. I would save this blend for pitchers of iced tea in the summer.
A large sugar heart could sweeten a pot of whichever tea you decide to steep.
Best wishes for the day!
Thank you to Fraiche PR.
