GCTTB Round 5 V2.0

Opening the sample package releases a burst of caramel scent. I used ~1.5 tbsp with 500ml water steeped for 5 minutes . From what I can tell this is a medium roast oolong with caramel cubes added and white (possibly sugar) butterflies. The smell reminds me of the caramel matcha I tried from red leaf tea but the taste is obviously quite different.

The caramel and oolong notes compliment each other nicely for a mild mannered slightly sweet cup. If one pays attention it’s possible to pick out the base oolong – I would actually recommend brewing this one for 3 minutes instead of 5 as I got some astringency from it. As it cools the oolong comes forward a bit more but I could still taste the subtle caramel addition.

Very decent blend! I’d be curious to see how the fresh version compares

I got a sample of this in the GCTTB 2.0 with fair warning that it was a little old. In my opinion it’s still a very nice tea with a smooth, light oolong base and sweet caramel flavours. I ate some homemade matcha shortbread with my cuppa tea and that really made the flavour pop. I’ll have to keep an eye out for this tea in stores so I can snag a fresh(er) canister.

How I wish Winners would carry their tea again.

Thank you Sil for sharing! This certainly did not disappoint. First of all, the little butterflies in the dry blend were adorable but more than that, this tea is delicious! This is so soft and creamy with just the right amount of buttery caramel deliciousness (think the soft, chewy caramels you get as a kid). Even the oolong base, which normally is not a favourite of mine, gives enough floral roastiness to heighten everything while not taking over the cup. It really is awesome and I am grateful for the chance to finally get to try such a beloved tea, even if it’s not the beloved caramel salted butter oolong. Thank you, Sil!

Since I’m on mobile, I’ll just note I brewed this for 4 min at 190F

This is THE one for me….its just older and less than it was initially.

VariaTEA

I thought that initially and then I thought I read somewhere that you preferred the Dammann so I was wondering how good that one must be to be better than this lol

Sil

the dammann one is a little more green oolong and the fauchon is a little more roasty oolong…

This is delicious, it is a creamy buttery oolong with notes of caramel. It is very smooth and slightly sweet.

The package states that it is aging so I can only imagine how delicious it is when it is fresh! If I ever put in an order here, this would definitely be on the list!

The resteep was enjoyable, with less creamy caramel.

Caramel. Ooolong. Heaven.
The pairing of flavours leaves a lovely fresh mineral note and something akin to apples, but more like a spritz of apple than a mouthful. The caramel aftertaste is lovely, I am in serious lust!!!
Thank you MissB for sharing!

Um…. yes. Very yes. Maybe not quite as tasty as I was hoping, but it’s pretty darn good. Excited to compare it to the other version, which I believe Sil prefers.

Without being sweet, it is very… sweet, and full, and tastes rather like a salted caramel. The oolong base is not overly noticeable, though this would be a significantly different tea without it, I’m sure. I can see myself getting a bit tired of this though, because it is very rich. Definitely will have to treat it as a “treat” tea.

Thank you so much to Sil for passing this along, which was originally from MissB, I believe!

Boiling 2 min, 45 sec

it’s also a little “old” now at least as far as i treat oolongs lol

I don’t feel like it’s lost much. I just had a slightly different expectation. But it’s good.

oh man. MissB sent this one our way in the latest batch of teas from europe. It smells divine! I think the girls may need to twist my arm to get my to share this one as it’s fairly close to the one from DF that i want more of… seriously creamy, delicious, caramel, buttery oolong yummy. Thank you MissB!

Dinosara

Woah, I totally missed that this is a thing. Is that the Caramel au Beurre Salé oolong from Dammann you are referring to? This one isn’t even on Fauchon’s website.

Sil

yea i love the one from damman freres…you sent a sample to omgsrsly and she sent a little my way and i’m in love! this one is close and equally delicious but i think i prefer the DF one just a bit. :)

VariaTEA

Sil liking an oolong?!? This does not happen often. And when it does, that usually means it is a very good oolong.

Sil

it’s drool worthy…. caramel…buttery goodness.

VariaTEA

Haha awesome! When I am in France, I need to go in search of Fauchon. I need more L’Hiver :P

MissB

Hiver was really easy to find in Paris VariaTEA, although it’s only available in a tin. This one was only available loose, and there were quite a few teas that they offer (very affordably, I might add) that you can only get in-store.

MissB

… and I really need to post the pictures of the Fauchon store! It was all fluroescent pink and crazy amazing, like Barbie meets Hot Tub Time Machine.

Equusfell

Man, I’m so jealous! I wish I had known anything about tea when I visited Paris a few years ago! I feel like it was an opportunity squandered.

VariaTEA

That is awesome to hear MissB! I think if given the chance, i would really like to go to the Fauchon store. Unfortunately I am only there a day so I don’t have much time to explore.
