Yet another new Fauchon blend! This one is another red fruits blend, this time with rose and apparently black pepper (!). In the dry leaf it smells like red fruits and I do get the floral rose. Once it is steeped there is an interesting spicy note in the scent that must be the black pepper.

The flavor is slighly more subtle red fruits than Le Bonheur or the 2017 Edition, but still definitely present. The black pepper gives it a pleasant kick without being super overwhelming. I would take more rose! I can barely taste it over the black pepper. This one is tasty but it wouldn’t be a must-restock.

Flavors: Pepper, Raspberry, Red Fruits, Rose, Strawberry

Boiling 3 min, 0 sec 2 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML

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.
