I’ve had teas variously called 1001 nights before, although I think this one is quite different from all of them. This one I got from MissB, and I cold brewed it. I have to say, although it was reasonably tasty, none of the flavors really stuck out to me. It was kind of just a generically fruity green tea as a cold brew. Apparently it has mint in it too, and I’m glad that did not come out in the cold brew. I definitely preferred Roi Solei from Laduree as a cold brew, it held it’s flavors better.
My cold brewed green of the day, once again courtesy of MissB. I tend to drink these without looking at what the flavoring “should” be, so it’s always a surprise. This one, I would have guessed citrus and vanilla, which is pretty close. Knowing that there is also rhubarb, now I really taste the rhubarb. It is not unlike the rhubarb and custard hard candies that I got in England. This was quite tasty, although the cream was perhaps a little much? I dunno, with the new association in my head, I like it better than I did before I looked it up. Weird how that works.
This tea comes to me from MissB, thanks! I snuck some samples into Equusfell’s mystery box, and she sent me quite the package. I shouldn’t be surprised. :)
Anyway, I really wanted to try some Laduree blends because hello, I love French teas, and I somehow have never tried their teas. Also I believe someone (Ysaurella?) told me that DF blends Laduree’s blends, and I am of course a huge DF fan.
This was nice. I don’t know that I would need to restock this one, but I definitely enjoyed it quite a bit. It actually reminded me a bit of MF’s Pleine Lune (hopefully there wasn’t any cross contamination). It had spice notes like a hint of cinnamon, a bit of almond, and some nice creaminess. I didn’t get much in the way of citrus or florals. Would definitely drink this one again.
Refreshing, floral and all around satisfying. This tea is 91% Chinese Green Tea and 1% Chinese Black Tea, so it has the crisp fresh flavours and aromas from green, but a warm, fuller undercurrent, coming from the black. The rich floral flavours like rose are delicately balances with the crisp flavours of mint and the the sweetness of the orange blossom is perfectly balanced with the spice of ginger, a perfect tea for summer. One of my all time favourite ‘green teas’. I buy loose, however I know these come in tea bags if needed.
Flavors: Ginger, Mint, Orange Blossom, Rose
Sweet and floral but with the full body of black tea, the notes of caramel and cinnamon are very subtle but works with the main notes of rose, bergamot and orange to make a blend which is classically Ladurée. Ladurée provides high quality, well blended tea. I been through quite a few boxes of this and I’ve yet to experience any bitter after taste. Kudos to the company for thinking about their quality and putting their teas in woven tea bags, and not plastic ‘tea temples’ as the plastic leaches toxins into your tea. One of the most delicate black teas I’ve ever tasted, unrivalled with anything else I’ve ever tried. Definitely one of the most delicate teas I’ve tasted
Flavors: Bergamot, Caramel, Orange, Rose
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! :)
Another crack at this one. I think i prefer MF or DF’s vnailla tea but this one is still pleasant enough that i won’t have trouble getting through the 100g i picked up. It’s got almost a lighter fruity side to it…not that it’s fruity but the tea underneath is…brighter? somehow? Not explaining very well today heh
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.
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.
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
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!!
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
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.
