drank Trois Noix by Mariage Frères
1112 tasting notes

Having a little post-lunch sit down and was in the mood for something sweet. I didn’t have quite enough of this left to make a whole pot, so I put in a pinch of Chocolate Almond Allure from Talbott Teas. Nice! It’s less marzipan-y and more nut-y, and you can taste a little chocolate. I do prefer the unadulterated Trois Noix flavor, even if it does make me cry with nostalgia!

Thank you Dinosara for a most enjoyable tea experience! I think instead of abracadabra, the magic word should be marzipan!

I love to cook, bake, read, paint, knit, do needlework, and garden. I need my coffee, but I LOVE my tea. I work at an Art School, and attend a large public university doing post-bac work (my BA is in English). I’m interested in the liminal spaces between art and craft, the academic and the practical, the individual and community, and the old and the new. I’m currently exploring these ideas through the disciplines of education, literature, history, and psychology.

I enjoy writing tasting notes, but have decided not to numerically rate teas as of 9/14/10. For an explanation, see my looooong tasting note about Mountain Malt from the Simple Leaf.

My favorites:
Chinese black teas
A good “milk and sugar” English style black
Earl Grey (classic, and in all variations!)
Vanilla teas (classic, and in all variations!)
Jasmine, Rose, Violet and other froofy, flowery teas!
An Occasional Oolong
Flavored Rooibos
Herbal Tisanes
