drank L'Automne by Fauchon
678 tasting notes

VariaTEA sent such a generous amount of this, I made a cup each for J and I this evening. I am really enjoying this tea, which continually amazes me. The orange seems to work well with the rooibos base – simultaneously balancing each other so neither is overwhelming, but so they’re both still present. The chocolate flavour is lovely in the background.

At this point, any herbal or rooibos that I like enough to keep around needs to be added to my cupboard. I love my black teas, but I have an awful tendency to forget to eat, but continue to drink black tea, and the caffeine just wreaks havoc on my empty stomach.

Does anyone know the best way to order Fauchon to Canada?

i haven’t figured it out yet courtney…let me know if you figure it out. i ADORE this tea… drinking it atm..

Courtney

I’m on their website, but to contact them you need to fill in all your details! I suppose I could. I do adore this tea.

VariaTEA

I am so glad you are enjoying this. It was good but I am not a chocolate orange lover so this would not have been appreciated if it stayed with me. I am grateful I got to try it though.

Sil

gasp

Even their shipping prices within Europe seem outrageous. Sigh. I’m finding so many things I need in Europe now, just weeks after my Swedish friend left for Australia.

This one is in my lineup!
BTW, my son’s best friend Matt married a girl from France that he met online. I still haven’t met her, but I’d love to ask her to pick up some teas when she goes home to visit :)

Sil

hahaha dooo eeeet

Courtney

Yes Terri, that’s awesome! My friends fiance is French, and he may still have family there too. I’m sure there’s some way we can conspire to get some Fauchon across the ocean.

Sil

how about…you guys pay ME to go and i’ll bring it all back…deliver it to your doors ;)

You might want to contact the people at Fouvrac to see if they are carrying any at the moment. There is some Fauchon in their Facebook pictures put not in their menu of teas though they say it is incomplete. The main French lines they have seem to be Betjeman and Barton and kusmi but they do phone orders if they carry it.

This is WONDERFUL stuff. I grabbed all of mine at Winners, and have yet to find it on their website, or anywhere else that will ship to Canada.

yyz

I have a list I want there cherry tea, les classiques, one of their straight black blends two of their greens ( one is meant to taste of lemon macaroons, one with a Yunnan base their smokey jasmine and according to one chat group I read their oolong Paris s’éveille is better than MF wedding imperial.

Courtney

I also have an ongoing list. I may check the Winner’s handy me tomorrow. There’s also a Holt here.

yyz

It’s possible they may appear again at winners last time it seemed it was within a few weeks after the vente privée sale.

Courtney

I haven’t heard of this sale? I do hope they reappear.

yyz

It was the us only online sale listed in miscellaneous sales thread. They seem to be doing it seasonally.

Sil

Vents privee didn’t have this…you didn’t miss it lol it was the firsts thing I looked for haha

Profile

Bio

Lover of tea, animals, the ocean (http://eastcoastbest.tumblr.com/), science, travel, and all things summer.

That’s my mug! I may have a slight love of Star Trek.

I love black teas. I pretty well always drink my tea straight. I’m also fond of herbals, but they rarely make my permanent collection. I prefer my tea hot, but occasionally I’ll cold brew.

Oolongs I enjoy, but I’m not generally in the mood for them. I only truly enjoy subtly fruity flavoured greens. Whites have to be pretty amazing (see Butiki’s White Rhino).

Pu’erhs I’m working on at a snail’s pace, but so far I’m not loving them. Rooibos/honeybush have to be well hidden for me to enjoy them. Mates and are not for me at all.

Likes:
Coconut, creaminess, yogurt, toffee, cacao (true dark chocolate flavour), rhubarb.

Dislikes:
Any smokiness, bergamot, flowers (rose, jasmine, chamomile), hibiscus is hit and miss.
