Im choosing this tea today for the obvious: WINTER!!!

I love winter, always had. I love that it’s crisp and white, I’ve always felt that winter was nature’s auto cleansing system… Like a reset button among the seasons, it erases everything in the waiting of the grand rebirth that spring will bring along…eventually!

But, as much as I like it, I’ll admit that it’s taking its toll on me right now. I’ve been shovelling 3 days in a row just to clean the access to my doors, and guess what? When it’s finally said and done…It snows again!!! Yay, more shovelling for my aching arms today!!

Lovely Sil made sure to include French teas in the box she sent me. I never miss an opportunity to try French teas, they get me closer to a fantasy I was probably born with of having tea in Paris someday…

This is a white tea, which is very “à propos”. It says lemon and cream, and it delivers just that. A sweet and creamy citrus aroma that tastes more like grapefruit than lemon to me. Actually, this tea reminds me a lot of Grapefruit Dragon from Butiki but a lot sweeter. The white base is of excellent quality which is to be expected.

It will make an incredible ice tea, that’s why I’ve cold brewed what I had left.

This is lovely, perfect afternoon tea to warm me up after a good shovelling workout. And it feeds my dream of having tea at Angelina’s one day…

It was also my first Fauchon tea ever, and I’ve got only Sil to thank for that :-)

Yvonne

Congrats on your first Fauchon tea! :) I have yet to try one myself but they sound wonderful!

Stephanie

Sounds like a lovely tea, and I’m having similar feelings about winter right about now. This one has been extra tough!

Dexter

If it’s a fantasy that you were born with then I think you should find a family member/friend/tea buddy and go and drink tea in Paris….

Yvonne, I feel so lucky I have a few more to try :-)

Stephanie, I totally feel the same!!!

Dexter, thanks, I will definitely find a way to make it happen :-)

Stephanie

Now that my student loan is payed off I’m saving up for a trip to Paris. You know, unless other “life” type stuff gets in the way between now and then :P

TheTeaFairy

Well my only advice to you is: go now!!!! Hurry!!!! Don’t wait so long like I have, if I could turn back time, that’s what i would do…but it’s never too late as they say, right?

Sil

Profile

Bio

I am French Canadian, so please forgive me if my English is not always perfect!

My relationship with tea in a nut shell:

I’m married to straight Blacks. I have torrid love affairs with Oolongs. My BFF are Greens. I socialize more and more with Pu’erhs. I have distant White acquaintances that I visit once in a while. I party with Flavored!

Love Steepster, a place for tea lovers, where you learn and share with others…

About me:

I am a free spirit, I let people be who and what they want to be and expect the same in return.

Books! I love French and classic literature, but also modern and pretty much anything that captures my attention.

As tea and books, music is something I can’t live without! From Bach to Nirvana, my ears know no boundaries…

Art is food for the soul…I consume lots of it.

Animal and nature lover, I will never let a fury friend in needs.

I’ve been drinking tea for as long as I can remember. But since I’v joined Steepster, my tea knowledge has emancipated exponentially.

Drinking tea is a sensorial experience. The name in itself “Camellia Sinensis” lingers the promess of an adventure for the senses…

As for my rating system, well it’s pretty much inexistent…Since I don’t write many reviews, I try to focus on the good stuff and will usually review teas that left a big impression on me.

Not a big «swapper» but if we do get to swap together, you’ll remember me, I live up to my Fairy reputation :-)
