Taster’s Review:

I was very excited to try this tea … it was the first that I’ve tried from this company, and I’ve heard so many wonderful things about Le Palais Des Thés that I wanted to experience their teas for myself!

And I am happy to report that this tea has certainly lived up to the reputation that this company has built for itself.  This is splendid!

The green tea is the most prominent flavor and that pleases me.  I am glad to find that Le Palais Des Thés does not overdo it on the flavoring!  The green tea tastes refreshing!  Sweet, lightly grassy, and smooth, with a soft mouthfeel.  Very little astringency … just silky, sweet flavor that glides over the palate from start to finish.

The flavors of kiwi, watermelon and white peach meld together deliciously, providing a flavor that is mouth-watering and sweet … but it is a natural kind of sweetness, not a cloying, candy sweet flavor.  The overall cup is light, fruity and vitalizing.

I enjoyed this hot, and as good as it is, I can’t help but think that this would be STUNNING as an iced tea … and with that warm weather approaching, this would be a good one to have on hand when you want to impress your guests with a gourmet iced green tea.
