drank Raspberry Macaron by Fauchon
1929 tasting notes

For some reason I thought this would be a good idea to have this afternoon before I figured out if my water pitcher was producing good water or not. This is another one that seems like it had a lot of potential, but possibly tainted by the water. It had a weird bitter note that was very sharp and I’m not certain wasn’t leftover soap aroma from the pitcher. Sigh. But this had nice almond, raspberry and rose notes, and smelled amazing. Will try again, and I have plenty of this one!

Ahhh I can’t wait to hear more about this one!

I’m so excited about this one, too. I’m ashamed to admit I actually don’t own any Fauchon teas… (It’s especially ridiculous considering I used to work just next to the main shop in Place de la Madeleine.) …but after reading all your Fauchon notes, I realize I need to rectify this ASAP.

Dinosara

momo, I will definitely be trying it again soon!

Anna, I hadn’t tried any until recently when I got some samples from another steepsterite. I wasn’t expecting to be impressed but I really enjoyed them! I was just in Paris so I picked up some of their teas because they don’t ship to the US on their online store!

Anna

Ugh, now I have to go check how they ship within Europe. Damn you and your delectable tea cupboard.

Profile

Bio

I am tea obsessed, with the stash to match. I tend to really enjoy green oolongs, Chinese blacks, and flavored teas with high quality bases, especially florals, bergamot-based teas, and chocolate teas.

In my free time I am a birder, baker, and music/movie/tv addict.

Here are my rating categories, FYI:
100-90: Mind-blowingly good, just right for my palate, and teas that just take me to a happy place.
89-85: I really really like these teas and will keep most of them in the permanent collection, but they’re not quite as spectacular as the top category
84-80: Pretty tasty teas that I enjoy well enough, but definitely won’t rebuy when I run out.
79-70: Teas that I would probably drink again, but only if there were no preferrable options.
69-50: Teas that I don’t really enjoy all that much and wouldn’t drink another cup of.
49 and below: Mega yuck. This tea is just disgusting to me.
Unrated: Usually I feel unqualified to rate these teas because they are types of teas that I tend to not like in general. Sometimes user error or tea brewed under poor conditions.
