1111 Tasting Notes
Sip down of my Oolong version of this tea. I think I have a cup or 2 left of the Zhen Qu version that someone generous around here sent me as a gift. I’ve really been enjoying this tea but I think when I’m done with it I’ll be happy to move on to something else and not re-stock. Totally enjoyed it though! Just burnt out-ish.
Weird timing that I chose this tea this morning, and then saw *boychik*’s post under Misc Sales that they are doing free shipping right now with a coupon code. I only have one serving left! TEMPTING!!! I love this tea’s almond-pastry goodness, but…I really need to continue to sip down what I’ve already got in my stash before it gets out of control. Anyway, if YOU love this tea and want more you might want to get some today!
Flavors: Baked Bread, Nuts

Apparently Fauchon teas are hit or miss for me. I REALLY liked a couple and a couple I have been pretty indifferent about. This is one of the latter. Nothing wrong with it exactly, it just doesn’t stand out as anything outstanding, you know?
This seems a lot more subtle on the flavoring than the Apricot…shrug
Super glad I got to try all these Fauchon samples. I know I am curious to try more but hesitant to pay big money for them unless I’ve already tried them and fallen in love like I did with La Naissance!
Thank you for the sample Dexter3657 :)
I haven’t had Earl Grey in a long time…there is something weird and not quite right about this one IMO. It SMELLS really good but tastes weird. I will finish my cup and glad I got to try it but this is on my do not like list , heh.
