Another tea from this morning before my other half and I went out to run a bunch of much needed errands. This one hit the spot today like nobody’s business. So happy to be back with my teas..

drank Snowman Tea by TeaGschwendner

I tried this one while I was picking up some teas for friends while in Chicago. I didn’t purchase it because while it was a nice tea, there was nothing innately special about it. Part of the reason i had a taste while i was in the store, was because there’s licorice in this blend and I wanted to know whether it was the sort that made the tea have a sickeningly sweet taste to it, or it was nicely blended lol. Turns out this is really nicely blended, but since it’s a green tea, it’d have to knock my socks off for me to pick up 50g.

drank Vanille by Ladurée

i’m still always amazed at how different one vanilla tea can be from another. I still have a little trouble with these teas from laduree but they’re still tasty enough that i am happy to have tried them. smooth base and great taste.

THIS is the store opening on Robson, not Fauchon! Le Sigh.

Sil

haha way to ruin omgsrslys hopes and dreams…

MzPriss

But the macarons will be sooooooo worth it

MissB

Lol, we’ve talked about it already, and she said the same thing as MzPriss. Ha! It’s still good tea, and frankly… I’ll use any excuse I can to get back to France. Fauchon can be it. :P

Sil

haha

Yeah, I love the differences. The ice creamy, the vanilla beany, the cookie-like, the whipped creamy. Probably more than that, even!

Marzipan

What you’re getting a Laduree?

Sil

aye.. Vancouver is getting one

OMGsrsly

Yes! Macarons! :D :D :D :D :D

drank Chéri by Ladurée

Still muted for me in terms of flavour vs smell. An enjoyable cup but i need to play with it a little more. At least, the tea base is lovely enough that it still makes for a good cuppa.

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.
