This was a generous sample from a swap and I made it as the second tea of tea party. Tea number one was a bust but this one made up for it.
I have only ever had one Fauchon tea, Le Bonheur, and it is quite good. It reminds me of Paris from Harney and Sons. I chose this tea for today based on the dry leaf aroma. I had my daughter make it at 203F for 3 minutes.
Dry leaf and steeped tea smell like a creamy chocolate eclair, the real deal. I was glad that everyone liked this since they didn’t like the Rishi Wuyi Oolong that we had first. This was the favorite tea today.
Our dessert was a French Silk pie made by my daughter. The crust has pecan meal in it, and the chocolate pie was tall and fluffy and so cool on this miserably hot and humid day. Topped with whipped cream, of course.
