drank La Naissance by Fauchon
440 tasting notes

Trying this tea again, but overleafing for this go round. The flavors are much stronger! Almond seems to play a more behind the scenes roll to the rose and jasmine, rose being dominant. I can taste some almond at the beginning of the sip, but by the end of it the floral flavors have taken over. There was another Fauchon tea I had who’s floral notes tasted like raisins and baby powder. I’m getting a light touch of that here, but it isn’t overwhelming like the other tea was. I’m not sure what flavor tastes like that, the rose perhaps? I am enjoying this cup, but I don’t think it is one I’d go for a tin of.

Big thanks again to Dinosara for this sample!!!

I really like this one, but I experienced more almond than floral for some reason!

I get more almond too! But I also get Turkish delight, and I like floral teas when I’m in the mood. It seems that those who are sensitive to florals, seem to pick out those notes a little more.

Oh, I hadn’t thought of Turkish delight! I usually do like florals, but this one just wasn’t doing it for me. :/

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. Rooibos now = meh and I have upped my caffeine tolerance. BRING ME CAFFEINE!!!!
