This was released for the holidays and so Sophie and Laurent very generously gave me a sample. When choosing a black tea from Nina’s Paris tonight I had the choice of Marie Antoinette or this. Since I already sampled Marie Antoinette, I thought I would give this a try. Furthermore, I was hesitant as this is an orange tea and I am not typically a fan but I figured if they were kind enough to give me a sample, I could try it out. Plus, I enjoyed their grapefruit tea so I hoped this might also be a success.
After my first sip it became clear that unfortunately this was not the exception to my rule but rather another orange tea that is just not for me. I will refrain from numbers as this is just a weird personal issue and not a reflection of the tea itself.
Thank you for Sophie and Laurent for this sample but it is just not for me.
On another note of things that are not for me. I just tried a few different chocolate bars from Dylan’s Candy Bar. The chocolate itself is very sweet, especially since it has been like 10 months since I last had chocolate, so that is a little unpleasant. However when you have a Bacon Chocolate Bar which is a combination of very sweet chocolate and very salty bacon, it makes you not so upset that you don’t get chocolate often anymore. You never know unless you try though and that was definitely an interesting taste experience. I imagine it could be a good flavor combination but it was not executed very well.
