1108 Tasting Notes
I have lots of samples from various Steepsters I should be tasting, but I was really in the mood for this one this afternoon. It is really hitting the spot! It is rainy and a little chilly here, and this is just perfect! :)
Makes me want to make some maple pecan scones tonight, too…heh.
kaylee was kind enough to send me a sample of her custom version of this tea with Organic Huangshan Mao Feng as the base!
Wow this is a completely different tea…I really like this green tea. However, I do strongly prefer the original darjeeling base.
Thank you so much for letting me try it, kaylee!
Gosh I was so busy this weekend I basically wasn’t on Steepster at all! Did I miss anything exciting?
Starting my morning with an evening in France! heh! Thanks boychik!
There is a lot of juicy apricot going on here. Also as expected, the nice mild base and floral overtones signature to Fauchon. Very enjoyable. I could picture it being a pleasant evening tea. Man, I want to go visit Paris some day! If I ever get to, I’m totally going to the Fauchon store!!!
Thank you SO much Keychange for a sample of this tea.
This is probably my favorite leafhopper tea I’ve tried so far, and possibly one of my favorite black teas of all time. WOWZA! I will be SO tempted to get some of this when I order Hello Sweetie and Lemon French Macaron when they are back in stock!
It’s like black tea had a baby with a belgian waffle :)
