Backlog. I drank this Friday afternoon but was too busy to log it then, and also too busy to really pay close enough attention to it. That along with potentially subpar water means I won’t rate this one because I think I missed some flavors here.
This was on my list of teas I must get. I love rose, I love lychees. There was a sign saying that this was only available in their Paris store, although it appears you can also buy it online, and by “you” I mean those of you that live in Europe.
I have to say that the Fauchon tins are very cool. I thought there was just a sliding lid, but under that there is a second, pushed in lid that makes it very air tight. Nice. Lychees tend to have a rosey flavor on their own, so I guess it isn’t surprising that this mostly tastes like a rose green, although there was a somewhat fruity note. The base teas is a flattened green, likely sencha, although I enjoyed it more than I have enjoyed other senchas recently. All in all a good purchase, and I’m happy to have it.
