drank Tower of London Blend by Harney & Sons
1196 tasting notes

Bath and Body Works has all these extra Paris things now and one is a candle called Sweet Macaron. I’m burning it while drinking this and it’s kind of bizarre how it matches so well. Candle + tea pairings!

I have been wanting to try Tower of London forever. I finally caved when buying Fruits d’Alsace. This does remind me a lot of Paris but more like an Earl Grey, at least in the after taste. I think the black tea is a bit more robust or at least it seems that way. The fruit doesn’t taste much different. That’s why it reminds me of the candle, because the candle has raspberry. Stone fruits not so much…apricot, no. Peach, no. Plum, not too much. I guess maybe you could even call it a cross between Paris and Fruits d’Alsace?

It definitely tastes like something I’d expect from France, but the name throws it off. Who cares though, it’s still delicious. I don’t think I’d buy it again at this point because I’d prefer Paris. But for simplicity, this is not a bad choice!

I hope you are dressed appropriately. No tee shirts and flannel. This is serious. You should have flowers and chocolates also. I’ll stop.

I use to work for Bath and body works LOL As soon as i get my pumpkin chi i am SO burning my pumpkin candle with it!!!

momo

Oh no Bonnie! I am wearing my pjs, BUT I do have the flowers from last weekend, they are still alive and well! AND I did buy myself chocolates a week ago and I still have one left…

Dinosara

Uh oh, now I have to go to Bath & Body Works and see if they have a sweet macaron candle… I can’t resist!

momo

The worst part is there’s also a French baguette one. And the scent Sweet on Paris smells like cotton candy macarons to me. They are evil.

Sare, I’m usually not a fan of pumpkin but o m g I smelled the Caramel Pumpkin Latte candle and I am all over that. I only got a wallflower for now but I feel like once it’s actually fall I may want mooooore.

Bonnie

OK OK Now I have a plan. I go get the candle, have the tea, go to the French Bakery in Old Town and pick up the matching Macaron, go home and shut the curtains and…Watch an old movie probably in my satin robe…sounds about right, Cary Grant!

Those candles smell amazing! I saw them just the other day. I was pretty tempted.

momo

Bonnie, I want to steal that plan. I’d choose North by Northwest!
