Ok a little surprised there’s not more tasting notes on this, or Angelina’s Paris in general. Yes Yes it’s golden crop is the dessert but it’s such the tourist shop- so many people have gifted this or used as a souvenir.
I know I have, it’s an iconic gift. Also a really easy gift to impress general tea drinkers or Paris romantics. The black tea lovers in your life would generally appreciate this tin. It’s inner compartment is plastic instead of metal all over but overall pretty well sealed. Brew it properly and you have mellowly fruit and buttery chestnut tea that’s perfect for autumn. Over brew and you get a strong black with a lingering sweetness and coppery feel on your tongue.
Does it taste like Angelina’s Mont Blanc? No that’s the stuff of the gods, don’t fool yourself- get the chestnut cream if you wanna bring some of that amazing pastry home. This is tea- elegant and strong with little bits of sweet roasted chestnut. Goes well on its own or with milk, feel free to sweeten with maple syrup instead to match it’s maple chestnut notes.
Flavors: Chestnut, Fruity, Maple Syrup, Toffee
