sipdown! thus beating my “goal” for this weekend of getting to 290. 289! and there’s still a few more hours left in the day….though maybe not too many since i am beat! release weekend = no sleep and we needed up having to roll back at the last minute so pretty much it was an all nighter for no reason. Now to see if we have to do it again in may or we bundle it into the june release. ugh.

final verdict no this tea? I’m not a fan. there’s a bitterness that i can’t seem to get rid of no matter how i steep it. It’s not a BAD tea but when i think about mousse au chocolat…there is no comparison for me! Still though, thanks so much shmiracles for this sample since i do love trying mariage teas! and even though it’s not the most amazing it was still a treat! :)

I’m begining to think this collection is a kind of gadget…even on French blogs these teas are very very far from unanimity.

I love the mousse au chocolat one heh

Ysaurella

yes but sounds bizarre MF blends are often appreciated by a majority and on blogs this collection has lower ratings than the others.

tres interesante! :)

Ysaurella

it made me laugh when I read she didn’t want to contact the client service about the fact she disliked the tea ! that’s it sometimes you like sometimes not…I’m considering sending a complaint to Nestlé world because I’m not sure I like their strawberry yoghurts…:D

OMGsrsly

My French is TERRIBLE so I did not get any nuances or alternative meanings, but I did like that review. :)

Shmiracles

ya, i’ve kinda given up on these two Héritage Gourmand i bought. or at least lowered my expectations. but i’m still interested in trying as many other of their teas as i can. i know it’s just your opinion, but thanks Sil, for making it two of us that is not bffs with this tea. glad again i could share :)

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling and am currently working on trying to get my other half to as many place in the world as possible.
