cocoa, caramel, vanilla…hmmm This is SUPER delicate and might actually warrant a 5 mins steep, so i’ll try that next. I can taste the cocoa and vanilla…the caramel might be what’s contributing to the slight muting of those flavours but overall it’s still a smooth blend that lets the base shine through. I have a suspicion that if i let this steep a little longer it might be spot on. Things to try for next time! :)

drank Vanille by Ladurée

Again with the different sort of vanilla. I didn’t realise that this was a darjeeling blend but i DO enjoy the subtlties of this one. I only steeped this for 3 mins, though Laduree seems to want all their blacks to be steeped for 5 mins. I will have no problems finishing this one off as it’s a really smooth vanilla blend, with the base teas coming through nicely.

drank Thé Jardin Bleu Royal by Ladurée
6130 tasting notes

I tried this one out today as i have a swap buddy who wants to taste this and i figured i should at least try a few of the teas before sending it off. this is a lovely tea – it’s reminiscent of those “red fruit teas” that you can pick up from DF, MF and a multitude of other french companies while still NOT being those teas. I’m not sure if that makes sense, but i’m tired of red fruit teas…and this one i would still drink.

cteresa

I had it, just a cup, not long ago! It is OK, but kind of dammann-ish – they themselves have a jardin bleu tea which is not too different from this one (but not quite the same if my nose remembers rights)

Sil

i prefer this one to the DF version, though that’s memory speaking and i couldn’t say why. A nice tea for the summer i think

Weird. I know I’ve had this at least twice before, yet there’s no record of me even adding this to my cupboard. Huh?

Is a lovely tea though, one to savour. Creamy, sweet, lightly perfumed, nothing really stands out. Delicious.

Flavors: Bergamot, Creamy, Sweet

Thanks Bonny and Sil for sending this one over to me!
We’ve got ppl over but I’m sorta ignoring them bc they’re drinking and shouting loud opinions at each other, and I’m quiet and can’t get their attention and I have tea to log.

This is a nice floral-ish tea with some interesting notes. The bergamot is really mild and the vanilla is quite soothing. It’s actually quite relaxing.

Thank you! :D

VariaTEA

Haha Cavo. “I have tea to log”…definitely important business. When I would have study days with a friend, we would drink tea and she would think I was doing work because I was typing so much but really I was just writing tasting notes on steepster :P

Cavocorax

Totally important business!!!

And that’s hilarious. :P Steepster is so much work eh? But it’s IMPORTANT

MissB

Ooh, glad someone else got to try this!

I did NOT expect to like this one as much as i did because it’s a) green and b) has bergamot. lol however, this one isn’t bad. It has NOTHING on the other one from laudree as far as i’m concerned but in the grand scheme of things, liking it as much as i did says something about it… fruity and caramel… just that darn blergmot interfering….anyone who really like green + bergamot, would likely quite enjoy this one :) thanks again MissB!

MissB sent this one my way. I’ve never heard of this company before her treats arrived so i brewed this up with no expectation of what to expect and didn’t look at what was even in it. First off, these are great little muslin tea bags. I’m a fan. Secondly…

OMG THE TEA! Another tasting note called this similar to an Earl Grey. If THIS was what all EG’s were like, i’d welcome EG’s in to my heart with open arms. But they’re not. I wouldn’t call this an EG myself – i don’t get that awful blergamot taste. Instead this is a seriously deliciate citrus, spice tea with what appears to be vanilla (according to the website) that makes it just a deliciously smooth amazing cup of tea. So much so that i resteeped the tea bag a second time because i didn’t want it to be finished. drool.

Now i have ANOTHER company on my list to try that i have no access to. le sigh thank you so much MissB!!

Anna

This is a perfect tasting note. Plus you had not heard of Ladurée!!! OMG. I would totally have a Ladurée room off my kitchen, all done up to look like a mini version of one of their stores. LadurSILée!

yyz

There’s a rumour that they are considering CDN location Sil:-)

Mean while they just opened a tea salon in New York.

boychik

I don’t need to know this.

Sil

boychik – sorry lol
yyz – ooooh yay for that~ also, another reason to go to new york!
Anna – noms!

yyz

Here’s a link to their menu. The tea list is towards the bottom.https://locu.com/places/laduree-soho-new-york-us/#menu

TheKesser

I’ve never heard of them either! Now I want to know more.

Sil

I’ve got another one to try from MissB, so maybe tomorrow i’ll pull that one out.

Suziqzer

Sounds great!

MissB

I’ll have to post pictures of the one in London to Facebook; it’s amazing, it’s adorable, and their macarons are almost as good as their tea. Plus, it’s not terribly expensive either.

Anna

ALL, like literally ALL my younger friends know of Ladurée from Gossip Girl. This is typical (and please enjoy the fact that she talks about a COLOR PALATE!!! AAAH! Reverse madness!): http://www.iamnotastalker.com/2013/07/16/ladure-from-gossip-girl/

Dinosara

Argh I was just reminded that I forgot to go to Ladurée when I was in NYC!! I looooooove Ladurée, mostly for their macarons. I have always considered trying their tea (I even looked at their teas in their store in Brussels last year) but have never taken the plunge. Guess I should.

Sil

Dinosara – bummer. When i try the other one that MissB sent (it’s green) i’ll have a better idea, but they feel to me like they’d be up your alley heh.

Dinosara

Yeah, I’m sure they would be. Of course they are one of the 100g at a time French teas so it’s hard to make the first plunge.

Bought in the UK but enjoying in France, I’d say this is my favorite green tea of all time. It’s light yet creamy, fluffy and caramely, I actually get the rhubarb in there as a slight tang, and even I want to say a baked crumble feel. It’s divine, more so with a touch of sweetener to bring out the flavours.

Flavors: Caramel, Creamy, Rhubarb

Preparation
1 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML

nice! sounds like an enjoyable treat!

This blend is like an Earl Grey, but softer and gentler, where you get citrus flavor without the least bit of bitterness or astringency. For having a strong citrus flavor, it’s remarkably smooth and delicate, perfect during months of colder weather. In the US, you can only order this tea by calling Laduree in NYC.

Prominent fruity, berry-like smell, similar to a light fruit punch. The smell of this blend really reminds me of strawberries and cream oatmeal. The only way to get this in the U.S. is to call Laduree’ store in NYC directly.

Finally opened this one as I’ve cleanly polished off a couple of other flavoured black teas (it’s easy to accumulate lots when they all sound so good!) – have been looking forward to it for a while. The first and last time I drank this tea was in Covent Garden, with my girlfriend, over pastries, and I remembered it being so, so sweet and delicious…

Funnily, it’s not giving me the same sweet surprise this time round! I’m finding familiarity in the cornflower and wild strawberry flavours as are in Yumchaa’s Notting Hill, although it’s a little more floral to begin with, and leaves a splendid, slightly acidic finish with the rhubarb. The black tea base is definitely there but it doesn’t overpower the added flavours at all – I think this might become my next comforting go-to tea once I run out of Notting Hill.

This sounds yummy!! And I sure do love macarons :)

Ysaurella

which Ladurée tea room were you ?

Shmiracles

i’m pretty sure it was Ladurée Bonaparte because i know we were on that side of the river. we went to Relais de l’Entrecôte Saint Germain for lunch before which was also amazing. with the 2 great experiences it was probably my best afternoon while in Paris.

A decadent and delicious floral gourmand which is quite addictive! Laduree teas are pricey but worth every penny!
