Tea of the Week: Harney and Sons Paris

I think the most comprehensive book on tea flavors I've ever read is The Harney and Sons Guide To Tea.  I've been wanting to try thier Paris blend for a while.  I found it while window shopping at William Sonoma.  I must say it didn't disappoint.

Liquor -- deep mahogany
Aroma -- complex, but with a main note of caramely bergamot.

Body -- medium

Flavors -- This tea reminds me of an Earl Gray, only sweeter and fruitier, with a slight nod to vanilla.  The flavors blend together well, though there is more emphasis on the slightly astringint black tea than the aroma suggests.
