drank Le Printemps à Paris by Fauchon
2007 tasting notes

I’m going to start this review by saying that I’m really glad I picked this one up at TJ Maxx. This is my kind of tea!

So this is raspberry, vanilla and rose. And it’s actually the second tea in a row that I had this morning (the first being todays Dammann advent that will be logged tomorrow) that was SUPER creamy. Just lovely. The vanilla is so smooth and sweet. The raspberry is nice fruity, the rose is lush. I even like the green base on this one, which is admittedly not super prominent but it is somehow robust enough and plays well with the rest of the flavors. Yum!

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.
89-86: 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
85-80: 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.
