This is my first Fauchon tea!! And after one sip, I know this won’t be the last.

Thank you Cavocorax for letting me try yet another company and a delicious tea. Sipping on this is like indulging in a piece of almond cake. It is sweet and oh so nutty. Plus it smells AMAZING! Although, tbh, I could do without so much floral. It is like sitting at a dessert table and adding a bit of the centerpiece to the dish – unnecessary and frankly, a little weird. But in the end, the almond cake flavors do win out so the cup is a pleasant little treat.

In future, I would probably reach for S&V’s Almond Sugar Cookie to get my almond baked good fix but that won’t stop me from happily drinking up each and every last drop of this cup. Thanks again, Cavo!!

Oh man, this is way better than Almond Sugar Cookie. Let’s hope Winners will bring Fauchon back soon!

Oh gosh, have I yet to send you any Fauchon? This is so my bad!

Haha. MissB, you don’t need to introduce me to ALL the teas (though I think you are trying to do so). You have shared so much with me as it is and I am not short of Fauchon teas thanks to the generosity of others on steepster. Do not worry, I am not deprived in any way :P

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.
