I am trying to finish a lot of teas I got around, for de-cluttering purposes and as trying to justify going tea shopping one of these days. Still had a bit of this left, brewed up a new cup. A very generous helping of tea (this is pricier than all of my Mariage Freres mixes, even Fujiyama and Lapsang Souchong Impérial), one sugar and some milk. Drinkable stuff but not wow.

Just adding a new note because this time I got another distinct note which I had never identified before, besides the chocolate and vanilla : almond, a subtle sweet almond rather than a strong bitter almond undernote. It´s still a sort of meh tea though and even for me, who likes “delicate”, the base tea is a wimp.

Meh.

Preparation

Fauchon is more than often overpricing its products. However the quality is not always there (right as well for its food in general, not only its teas)

Going by this tea, I totally agree! I was a sucker, though actually this was a tea I could look at and smell before buying, it smelled awesome (well, concentrated in a huge tin) and I thought I could see the little bits of cocoa and vanilla beans chopped up on it. But brewed up, what a disappointment. I am going to give Fauchon teas a wide berth from now on.

This sample came to me from MissB, thanks! This tea reminded me a lot of Fauchon’s Chocolate Eclair, but on a black base instead of a dark oolong. A little more robustness to the base, but still a lot of thick milk chocolate flavor and sweetness, presumably from actual chocolate in the blend as well as the cacao nibs I see. This one left some substantial sludge in the bottom of my cup. Nonetheless, still quite tasty. Thanks for sending it along!

Really quick review of this since MissB was kind enough to send this our way. I am a fan. I had this sometime yesterday in the middle of wedding stuff and i don’t have strong memories of it, but i know i finished it off fairly quickly and the chocolate seemed to work really well with the fauchon base. It was more milk chocolate for me than dark, but it was tasty!
