drank Mélange Madeleine by Hediard
1468 tasting notes

I found this tea (and several other Hediard teas) at Homegoods of all places, which I have randomly found other good teas at awesome prices like Fachon and Kusmi! If you are a Halloween enthusiast like me (hands down best holiday EVER) then Homegoods is also your spot for great finds. Tea AND Halloween?! How could it get any better?! I failed the test of tea temptation that day and left the store with with several tins at $8 a piece.

Dry, this tea has the aroma of candied orange peel rounded out by vanilla. There is supposed to be lavender as well, but I’m not able to detect it. Once steeped, the flavors lighten up significantly. I can pick out the citrus in the back of the sip and the aftertaste. There is a smoothness in the flavor that I attribute to the vanilla and I think I get some floral hints, but it’s hard to know for sure. I drank most of this cup during my busy morning and am now trying to write a note off the cooled remains of my cup. I think this one is my favorite so far of the Hediard teas I picked up and I look forward to trying it cold like the other reviewer mentioned.

My eldest daughter, Superanna on Steepster, is THE BIGGEST fan of Halloween ever! She has an online countdown going and has already started planning next year’s party. Her birthday is near that time, so she combines the celebration and calls it “Anna-ween”. (Now you all know her real name – bit it is pronounced Ah-nah.)

Anna-ween is an awesome combo! My daughter was supposed to be born on Halloween, but the stubborn girl held on for fifteen more days which allowed me to do an awesome Alien chest-burster costume that year. Only 294 more days until Halloween. I really should figure out what my costume will be this year! Has Anna discovered halloweenforum.com?

Bio

My name is Dustin and I like tea.

I’m an added flavor kind of tea fan, but have had a growing appreciation for plain. I want my tea to remind me of cookies and cakes with coconut and almond slices with a hint of chocolate drizzled on top. I want dancing ponies and flying monkeys shooting off fireworks! And no hibiscus. Hibiscus is the devil.
