drank Pistachio Ice Cream by Butiki Teas
1212 tasting notes

I never thought I really cared about pistachio flavored things until I had a pistachio macaron from Pierre Herme. WOW. (I also had an asparagus/hazelnut one. It was weird.) While this is not toothache-inducing sweet like those, it still very much reminds me of that macaron. And most importantly, it is readily available.

The green tea is nice and subtle. It’s there, but it doesn’t take away from the flavors. Vanilla, pistachio, cream, they are all there. I get the macaron more than ice cream but it’s also hot and I usually have a hard time with typically cold flavors in hot form. It’s still incredible though.

I already made a second steep, and once it cools I will try it iced. Then I’m going to cold steep the leaves for later, I can’t wait to try this iced, clearly!

Pierre Hermé is a GOD of macarons ! you should try as well the ones from Ladurée (pistachio ones are really nice)

I had some from Ladurée too, but I can’t remember which ones now :( I guess I have to go back!

Ysaurella

the ones I especially love from Ladurée are Rose and Violet :)

I have a picture of them! http://farm3.staticflickr.com/2723/5794094258_fb33db282e_z.jpg But I can’t remember what any of them are. They’re so pretty.

I would say from left to right :
caramel beurre salé,apricot,raspberry, cassis (blackcurrant),pistachio,rose,strawberry, praliné
just typing the names I have an enormous need to eat a macaron :D

I definitely remember the strawberry now. My mom probably bought the pistachio one. Finding the picture made me want to eat one too. The ones here just cannot compare at all :(
