I cold steeped some of this in the fridge overnight and I have to say it is LOADS better than when I tried it hot. It is still really weird and I still get a ton of baby powder flavor, but the raisin taste has faded and some of the orange and rose has come out on the sip. The aftertaste is still all powder tho. If the flavors from the sip lingered into the aftertaste, I’d have a winner here, but I just can’t get past the powder mouth.

Where do you get Fauchon teas in the US?

Dustin

There was a sale from Vente Prive. It is one of those places that gets a limited quantity of stuff from particular brands and does a flash sale. Keep an eye on the sale threat we have on the forum. Someone always posts when they are doing a Fauchon sale. Last year people were finding it at stores like Home Goods and Tjmaxx too, but it is really random there too.

Bio

My name is Dustin and I like tea.

I’m an added flavor kind of tea fan. I want my tea to remind me of cookies and cakes with coconut and almond slices with a hint of chocolate drizzled on top. I want dancing ponies and flying monkeys shooting off fireworks! I like a little sugar in my tea. I love caffeinated tea, but since I limit myself to one cup a day, I have been exploring more rooibos and honeybush teas.
