From American Tea Room

Brioche’s astoundingly decadent aroma and flavor make it one of our best sellers. Even the dry leaves perfectly capture the spicy-sweet aroma of a Parisian patisserie with intoxicating, beguiling, tempting aromas of nuts, spices and an unrivaled baked sweet note.

Visually speaking, well-oxidized ebony leaves are contrasted with pale, sliced almonds, bits of cinnamon and vermillion-colored safflower blossoms. The brew is a shimmering rust color.

The aroma and flavor of Brioche are rich, nuanced and reminiscent of hot cinnamon buns, almond croissants, fine black tea and warm brioche with a touch of marmalade. It has an equally enchanting aftertaste that lasts and lasts…

This superbly balanced blend stands on its own as an indulgence, or pairs beautifully with breakfast pastries and fruity after-dinner desserts (such as Linzer tarts).

This tea is from the first round of the great Canadian travelling tea box. There was only enough for one or two cups so I took it out and threw it in my cupboard as I had been wanting to try it for a while. I am just getting to it now, about 7 months later.

I think I would have really liked this if I had tried it when I received it. But after all of the wonderful teas I have had the pleasure to try in the last year, this just doesn’t do it for me.

I received this as a sample from BrewTEAlly Sweet. Oohh my goodness. The dry and wet leaf smell very similar: spicy-sweet, nutty, and bread-like. Like warm pastries, freshly baked bread. The tea gives off a slightly citrusy aroma, which I believe has something to do with the tea base? Hmm. It reminds me of French toast, with its cinnamon and almond flavors. The predominant flavor, however, is bread. Eggy and sweet and delightful. It has a nutty, sugary finish. It’s a light tea despite the 4 minute steep time. No astringency. A good tea for evening time. (:

TTB&C #16

I have seen many amazing reviews of this tea, so it was recently added to my wish list. I am glad I got to try this one. The first sip actually reminded me of a snicker doodle. Very cinnamon and almond cookie like. I drank the first half of the cup straight, then decided since I was drinking a dessert tea that I would add some milk and sugar. The milk and sugar really helped bring this to life for me. This is very enjoyable. If I ever order from ATR I might consider adding a small amount of this.

Dessert-y teas are always tricky. Are the flavors really coming through, are they balanced, does it taste like the dessert it’s supposed to be like. Wellll, as a matter of fact, this meets my requirements. It’s always a mystery as to how they make some of the flavors like bread. Someone told me it’s magic. Hey, I can go with that. :-D I did a resteep, still good. Made some iced tea out of some that had been sitting in the pot for a while. Very yummy!

I woke with a start that only the truly anxiety-ridden are familiar with, and checked the clock only to learn that it was 4:00 AM. There are times when you wake with a start but can nevertheless calm yourself down until you fall asleep again, and then there are others when you know that any efforts to stave off your anxiety and actually get back to sleep will be fruitless. Sadly, this night fell into the latter category. Not to worry though, as I quickly slipped out of bed and headed to play on the computer in the living room. What on earth did people do with their anxiety in the middle of the night before the internet?

And what better cure for needless anxiety than a steaming mug of tea and settling down with a cozy book. And I really picked a most cozy and delicious tea to accompany me! This very generous sample comes to me from the extremely kind-hearted VariaTea, who sneakily rummaged around on my wishlist and sent me like all of it. This tea was wonderful!

The people who rave on and on about the aroma of the dry leaf aren’t kidding: it smells like a baker’s kitchen, nutty and sweet. I don’t know that I would identify the nutty smell as almond right away, or perhaps it is—and it isn’t of the marzipan dessert variety. I steeped this up for four minutes with milk and sugar, and the sip was thick, buttery, and nutty, with a hint of sweet breadiness. I’ve had brioche before (although it was from Cora’s, and I can’t attest to its quality, necessarily, and I imagine French chefs would scoff), and actually found it a bit underwhelming as a bread, but again, it was at Cora’s so there’s that. But this tea was excellent, and manages to feel simultaneously decadent and mainstream, so that I could easily imagine having it as a breakfast tea. The flavours work very harmoniously with the base, and this tea will indeed remain on my wishlist. It’s one of those thick, buttery teas that makes you want to slide your tongue around the roof of your mouth to lap up all the buttery cream. Mmm.


I also had that sort of night. I woke up at 1:45 and I should’ve just gotten up, because I got no sleep for the rest of the night. This tea is delicious though!


How supremely irritating. uggh. I hope we both sleep better tonight. And yeah this tea is great!


This sounds like a delicious tea. I’m going to add it to my wishlist. :)

I hate not being able to sleep at night. I often can’t get to sleep at night, or I wake up and I’m up for hours. Usually, there’s no reason why that I can tell, which is even more infuriating. I hope everyone sleeps well tonight, and makes it through the day without too much trouble.


cheri, I do hope you get to try this tea soon. I would send you some but I only have a serving left haha. And yes, here’s to a proper night of sleep tonight!


I am sorry to hear about your night but definitely happy you enjoyed the tea. I am quickly running out which is so strange because when I tried it the first time, I really did not like it and now I can’t get enough.

If I had said anything about other dessert teas being delicious, I kind of halfway take it back, because this is truly delicious. This tea defines delicious.

I have been intoxicated by the aroma of dry leaf. And also the way it looks – I absolutely adore the almond pieces! I was also very pleased with how the brewed tea was clear, ruby-red and beautiful with no chicken-soup greasy blotches that flavored teas’ brews sometimes result in. Then I let it cool slightly… And had a sip, then another one… I totally fell in love.

It’s not the cinnamon, it’s not even the almonds, it’s this lovely baked-goods buttery note that I absolutely adore. It is kind of like a cookie, perhaps a biscotti? I have never tasted anything like it.

I want this tea to be made for forever, so I can always re-stock it.

It is wonderful, isn’t it?


I expected it to be really good, because of all the reviews, but it turned out to be 10 times better than just “really good” :)


Man you could be a sales person for this tea. It sounds so yummy the way you describe it.


I wouldn’t mind if ATR sent me a pound of it as a thank you! :D :D

Had to sip this quick before my orthodontist appointment earlier, so I’m doing this one from memory; we’ll have to see if it turns out okay.

There’s a great black tea base paired up with a definite yeasty/pastry note. It doesn’t quite hit what I remember brioche being like, but as far as a sturdy sweet breakfasty type tea goes this one is a total hit.

It’s along the same lines as the Blueberry Crumble by Della Terra, but without the fruit notes…more like a cinnamon roll without the cinnamon? Eh, you get what I mean. Tasty tea and one I would eagerly drink again (and may buy as a result of trying it in the TTB).

I’ve removed most references to my kinky life on Steepster. While my interest in tea did evolve from an interest in tea as a service task, it has developed into much more than that, and it’s now a part of my everyday life.

The local BDSM community lost a wonderful person last week. She was involved in local and global tea organizations, and I had the great pleasure of meeting her and taking a tea service training class with her. Yesterday, those who wished to remember her had a cup of tea in her honor, and this is the tea I chose.


I am sorry that the world has lost her, but hope she knows how appreciated she is.

OH my goodness. this is so delicious. so last night i had a long-overdue mugful of the Brioche Free, with cream (er, half-and half) and sugar, and holy cow it was delish. it SO hit the spot that all morning long i’ve been imagining i taste it and smell it all over the place. so FINALLY i assuage my craving with a hit of the Organic Brioche, just made up, milk (1%) and sugar included, and my itch, it is scratched. i can’t believe i’d forgotten i own this as well as the BF. BAD bad. NEVER again will i forget.

Much better balanced than the brioche free, this is a good example of a flavored tea that works. The tea itself its mellow and mild so the delicate flavors come through. My relatively low rating is meant only as a personal record for myself that I prefer to taste more tea, so this was a poor choice for me. But a good tea!
