From Mariage Frères

Autumn, which turns maple leaves fiery red, is a good time to indulge in a delicious treat that erases the bitterness of rainy days. That is why Mariage Frères has employed an almost forbidden fruit – marrons glacés, a famous French indulgence ever since the days of Louis XIV – to create its new “Autumnal Red” tea.
A red rooibos from South Africa, mild in taste with very little tannin, has been combined with the flavour of fine candied chestnuts and Bourbon vanilla, yielding a most striking yet smooth cup, warm and festive, with fruity and slightly spicy harmonies that precede a final note of honey and dried fruit.

OH, this is amazing. For some reason I’m getting strawberries and cream, but I do taste the vanilla and walnuts mentioned in the description. This is very sweet and has a surprising amount of depth for a rooibos. I only have enough for a few more servings, but I look forward to each cup.

Thank you QueenofTarts!

I can’t wait to pick up my french teas from Sil now! :O I wouldn’t want to drink these daily because I wouldn’t want them to be common-place, but wow!

And… 12 minutes later and my cup is empty. :(
I’d immediately go re-steep but it’s nearly 1:30 and I don’t want to run the kettle and risk waking up my bf. Perhaps I’ll move it into another room. /determinedface

OMGsrsly

I used to make my roommate run her blender in the laundry room (which was right beside the kitchen) because the door blocked enough noise I could sleep through it! So yes. Move the kettle. Drink your tea. :)

I ended up re-steeping it tihs morning. It’s awesome!

All of this rain has been making me crave hot drinks and warm blankets! I’ve found myself drinking so many cups of coffee and caffeinated teas that I think I need to tone it down and drink something decaf! I have a very, very early morning on Tuesday and will need to stop drinking caffeine earlier tomorrow. It’s funny, but I like days when I don’t have to get up very early in the morning because I can drink whatever I like the day/night before.

Anyway, onto the tea! My father brought this tea back for me and I’m so happy that it’s a rooibos! The dry leaf smells very sweet and rich. Once water has been added, the tea smells a bit like a spicy vanilla. Sipping… It could be because this tea is a little old, but the flavors are so muted! I can still taste the rooibos, a bit of vanilla and something nutty. It is tasty and would be more appropriate for drinking with something very sweet, like cake or a pastry. I had just finished having a few bites of a very sweet brownie, so I welcome this cup — mellow, smooth and not at all overwhelming.

I find this one a little muted, too – try MF’s Rouge Provence, if you get a chance and don’t despise lavender; in my opinion, it packs a bit more punch.

Does this really taste like candied chestnut?

I’m afraid I just don’t do rooibos well. The ingredients in this tea sound just like perfection to me – chestnuts are one of my absolutely favourite things ever. Figs and chestnuts are probably hanging out together at the top of my very tall ‘yummy yummy things’ pyramid. But alas, I just don’t like this tea. To me it tastes primarily like rooibos, no matter how many times and in how many ways I prepare it. Sigh. I should probably give up on rooibos, but as it seems to be the non-tea base of choice for amazing-sounding blends, I probably won’t.

By the way, I’ve recently discovered lapacho bark, and it is delicious. I got a pack of Rhubarb Lapacho tea at Hebden teas in York, and it is utterly delightful. Wish more places would make lapacho blends…
