T&C TTB Tea #2 Backlog May 23

Oh man. I loved loved loved this tea. It was my very first Fauchon tea, and it may have created a monster.

I didn’t know what to expect, but when I smelled the dry leaves it was like freshly baked bread, hot out of the oven! Weird.

3-4 minutes at 96 degrees.

It brewed up to a medium dark amber color, and smelled faintly of roses, and vaguely fruity. The bready note wasn’t as apparent.

The taste – awesome. No…. AWESOME. Almonds! Softly of roses, in a non-overwhelmingly floral way. I’ve never had marzipan before but I bet I’d love it!

This tea, is a must buy.
Gah.

Stephanie

Me too. Can’t buy it anywhere :( cries

Rue La La has had at least two Fauchon sales that I know of. Don’t know if you guys in Canada can use Rue La La or not. Their occasional tea offerings are why I keep track of them. :)

I’ve been stalking Vente-Privee, waiting for them to have this brand so I can TRY THEM ALL!

Stephanie

They’re all pretty flowery. FYI, since some people are opposed to that. I’ll check out Rue La La, thx

When I went on my hunt for L’Automne, I did see a tin or two of this one at at least one of the Winner’s I checked.

Stephanie

What’s a Winner’s? Oh is it a canada thing? Crap.

I checked Homesense the other day to no avail, I will have to try winners just in case! Though Homesense had a ton of tea and coffee , no brands I recognized.

OMGsrsly

I haven’t seen it in Winners again. I remain hopeful, though. If I see some I’ll get you a tin!

Courtney

Yes, the ones I found were at the Homesense/Winner’s store too. There is a US equivalent Stephanie – I think it’s maybe TJ Maxx’s?

Stephanie

TJ maxx, I do have that!

Amariel

I wish this one didn’t have the roses, because they give me headaches. There was not much in it, so I didn’t get that bad of one, but I did. Sadly.

Marzipan

Of course you love marzipan! :D

I will have to keep my eyes open for this tea! Must have…..gah

Hello!

I love tea. I love my baby daughter, my husband, my dog Wally, Netflix, shopping, and tea. Some other stuff too, but these are the most important!

Some favourites -

Butiki teas in general, I love how the flavours are subtle and not fake tasting and don’t overwhelm the tea base. Trust that I will be dramatically mourning the loss of this company!

Harney and Sons, Teavivre, Whispering Pines and Mariage Freres are some more tea companies I appreciate. Along with Davidstea as it was the ‘gateway drug’ to my tea addiction. Though I’m mostly over it now, I’ve definitely moved on from the artificially flavoured teas and am trying more quality straight teas!

My ultimate goal is to try as many French teas as possible – and to finally find a source in Canada for Mariage Freres so I can buy Wedding Imperial, and Black Orchid for sure.

I would like to try any Taiwanese Assams that exist in the world!

Also continuously on the hunt for Fauchon – La Naissance.

When I rate, it goes like this:

85 -100 = WIN! awesome, I love this and keep it on hand
70 – 85 = pretty darn good but I don’t NEED to own it
55 – 70 = not necessarily terrible but not a tea for me!
30 – 55 = missed the mark as far as I am concerned. Wouldn’t drink it willingly.
0 – 30 = I likely won’t rate this low very often, so if you see it, consider the tea a great big FAIL and probably disgusting.
