First : Ruby Woo Scarlett, Mélissa, you are both right : Rouge d’Automne exists in 3 versions : Black, Green and Rooibos.

I do agree the name of the tea itself is confusing as for a French speaker Rouge means as well rooibos – Most of French people probably use more thé rouge than rooibos)

Initially when I added this tea to the steepster database it was for the black blend (the only one I tasted)

So my note is for the Black version : I am desesperately in love with Rouge d’Automne.
First time I tasted it was during a lunch at Mariages & Frères. A tea is included in the menu as beverage and I wanted to taste especially this one.

I sniffed it before the Lunch and wanted to buy a full bag and wanted to ensure it wouldn’t be a mistake.

It was definitively not a mistake : the Vanilla + Chestnut are just a dream : a creamy and sweet dream.

The mix is really working fine – It may be not a very subtile mix, definitevely not the finest Mariage tea but I do really love it and I do really love it very very very much.

You’re lucky to be able to buy mariage freres easily. I’m hoping that I can get back to la belle France next year to stock up teas and visit some tea houses there.

I understand how you feel because I can read on steepster so many notes about wonderful teas I cannot buy in France and cannot buy at all because the companies are not shipping to France…I recommand Dammann Frères,Le Palais des thés and The O dor for your next visit in Paris

Ooh thank you for the recommendations. I’m super busy these days but maybe in the future I can see if there’s a way to get some of the teas you’d like to try over to you. :)

First, please forgive me for my English and all the grammatical mistakes you’ll find in my posts.
As English isn’t my mother tongue it sometimes makes things more difficult to express cleverly and accurately what I feel.

I was mainly in black flavoured teas, green as well if not bitter.
I’m now drinking much straight teas because my palate is now developed enough to appreciate them .

My favourite brands are : Mariage Frères,Theodor,Butiki Teas,Dammann Frères, Betjeman & Barton.
My ratings are as follow :

100 to 95 : my darlings; always in my cupboard

94 to 90 : Excellent tea, often in my cupboard

89 to 80 : very good tea, a pleasure to drink it

79 to 70: not bad even nice, why not having it sometimes, but well, not so urgent !

69 to 50 : Meh, deceptive or just not for me – but has some qualities

49 to 30 : I just don’t appreciate it

Under 30 : is this tea ?!?!?
