drank Je t'Aime by Nina's Paris
2370 tasting notes

This tea is amazing!! “Je t’aime” is definitely right because I do really, REALLY like this tea.

The smell of delicious vanilla caramel fills my nose as I brewed the cup. Tastewise, the black tea actually enhances the caramel flavor making it extremely rich and decadent. Truly one of the better caramel teas I have had. This one is a hit!

Thank you Sophie and Laurent at Nina’s Paris for giving me the opportunity to try this tea. I will definitely be buying more of this in the near future.

ETA: This resteeps quite well so I am enjoying another cup :)

Damn your inability to taste any caramel other than Stacy’s. I am sorry you can’t taste it because it is really quite good. Maybe one of these days you will find a caramel tea you actually CAN taste (other than Butiki teas)

JustJames

it’s just weird, isn’t it?!

VariaTEA

It definitely is but at least you can taste Butiki caramel since Stacy’s blends are always amazing

JustJames

this is true!

My cupboard has grown exponentially since joining this site and I have a lot to share. Feel free to snoop through my cupboard and message me if anything interests you – I am always happy to swap!

For me, flavored teas are definitely my sweet spot. I will most often reach for black teas and rooibos or honeybush blends but I do keep some flavored whites and greens around for when the mood strikes. I have a few herbals/tisanes but most of the time I find myself disappointed by them as they often smell deliciously sweet and then end up tasting tart/sour. I have a little bit of an aversion to pu’erh and oolong teas. I am also wary of florals, earl greys, and chai teas. I do not like overpowering citrus flavors nor do I usually like hibiscus, licorice or chamomile. I love dessert teas – caramel, vanilla, toffee, cookie, cream, and other sweet flavors make me smile. Fruits like strawberry, peach, mango, and pineapples will often catch my attention as well.

I have also realized that although I really enjoy adding frothed milk to some of my teas, if I do not like the tea with zero additives (just in plain water without milk or sugar), I probably won’t drink it. The one exception is flavored matchas which I will happily drink in cold milk if I do not like it mixed with hot water. My theory is if the tea can’t stand on its own then it is not for me and I will more than likely try to swap it out for something else.
