drank Miel Orange by Hediard
333 tasting notes

I am sipping this one right now and it is really delicious.
I was sure orange and honey were pairing so well together but it is better than I thought.
I really love it, the honey is really natural (maybe an orange honey or acacia) and not over sugared, it perfectly balances with the orange, a sweet one, not a bitter one.
The tea base is classic and has no bitterness at all.

This is an Hédiard blend but we can recognize the Dammann one behind so my tasting note is valid for the Dammann Frères Miel Orange as well.

this sounds lovely…

it is but I need to nuance a little I am a sucker for honey so it may biaise my feelings a little :)
I have 100g of this one so if you want I can send you a sample (along with other teas in my cupboard if you like of course)

Oooo yum, that sounds really good. I have some honey in my cupboard that’s fruity and it’s a blend of orange blossom and acacia. I can only imagine the orange flavour would be greatly enhanced with such a honey pairing. Never tried Hediard’s teas but my grandmother’s a huge fan of their pates de fruits.

the Hédiard teas are made by Dammann Frères so they are great, just a little big much expensive…:)

Do you think their other products are supplied by other companies as well?

Ysaurella

I think so yes, as they are a luxious retailer but a retailer.They may have developped nice partnerships with some brands to get supplied and they surely have negociated some special products made in exclusivity for them but I don’t think they are manufacturing anything by themselves.
The point for them is to make the right selection for their market,to find out the right agreement and to rebrand everything with their marketing rules.

Ysaurella

having said that, regarding the fresh cakes they are selling in shops, they have their own chefs (Fauchon is much concerned by that and you may remember Pierre Hermé was the Fauchon Pastry Chef before he decided to open his own business)

Ruby Woo Scarlett

That’s really interesting. I’m interested in makeup as well and since Chanel owns Bourjois for example you often find very similar products repackaged and given a different price tag.
I personally would just rather go straight to the source. I’ll stick with my usual Dammann/Mariage.

Profile

Bio

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 ?!?!?
