From Mariage Frères

Associé à l’univers Englishissime du pudding et des cookies, le butterscotch – alliance de sucre et de beurre – est ici revisité en variation gourmande sur un thé noir dont les élans maltés accueillent avec délices les parfums de chocolat, de caramel et de miel.

Etonnant et délicieux

Looks like I am the first to rate this. This is a sample from the recent swap and tea crawl, and I think I got this one from CrowKettle if I’m not mistaken.

This tea kinda smells powdery, and I am really not sure why. It also has a little of that to start. It does meld into a sweet finish though. I can pick up some sweet caramel and butterscotch notes at the back of my throat with the sips. I did add sugar and milk to try to give it a little kickstart on the sweetness and creaminess.

The infusion was a lovely mahogany red shade. I think the only thing that catches me off guard with this one is that powdery start. It’s so unusual. I don’t think the tea is off, because it was sealed in a foil pouch.

I’d say this is an ok tea, but it isn’t something I can’t live without. I’m glad I got to try it.

I would love to know the actual list of ingredients for the teas from Mariage Freres. This is the one was originally from ToiToi!

Amariel

I agree.

Well, sad of not being able to get a sample of their oriental beauty, I lower my sights and asked for a sample of this tea. A full change of registry! But I also wanted to taste this famous tea.

“Butterscotch” the term for a French, does not really mean anything. In fact I know by now there is a kind of Scottish caramel made of brown sugar mixture and butter, molasse. But before I thought it was a kind of cake … well … I had to taste a butterscotch shortbread … which explains my mistake … I’m ignorant :)

The dry leaf displays a very strong fanatic fragrance (yes fanatic, not fantastic) of caramel: even with a big cold I don’t think possible for anyone not to detect the caramel because it is really so strong. And it’s not the smell of a light, sweet caramel; it smells like an aggressive caramel, very very red, not the little light caramel found on a tiered cake!

The leaves are cut rather short with a lot of very small twigs: suddenly I get scared and decide not infuse it more than 2 minutes 30 and at 90 ° C.

I get a wet leaf that looks like “packets”. I wonder what taste I’ll get in the end…

The liquor is a very dark amber brown very …caramel … actually …

And the surprise happens at the very end and essential chapter in the art of tea: the taste ! this tea is amazing! It is relatively smooth, very soft and the taste of this caramel is truly unique, very present but not too strong – that unique taste that I do not know, I love it … it’s probably that… the butterscotch … it should make sense isn’t? :)

Sounds fantastic! Butterscotch is kind of similar to caramel in my opinion, but more buttery. :D

Hmmm…maybe I need to get this one now!

This is a very nice tea for a very little price 5,50 € for 100 grams.I may be tempted now to buy some !

I added milk to this morning’s cup and I think it’s a good thing I did. The milk adds a bit of creaminess and fullness to the cup. Without it, it could get a little bit thin and almost coppery? The start of the sip is mostly vanilla and rum for me and it slowly turns into a thick and sweet butterscotch flavor. This flavor works really well with the tea base which comes as a surprise since I thought the two would clash. The tea leaf and the flavor are balanced quite well!

This was a nice and sweet cup of tea to start my day. I don’t think I would buy more simply because there are other flavors that I enjoy more, but it’s certainly a must-try for those who like butterscotch! Thank you ToiToi for a sample of this.

Tabby

I need this!

QueenOfTarts

Tabby, definitely a must-try if you like butterscotch and mariage freres’ tea base.
