From American Tea Room

Brioche’s astoundingly decadent aroma and flavor make it one of our best sellers. Even the dry leaves perfectly capture the spicy-sweet aroma of a Parisian patisserie with intoxicating, beguiling, tempting aromas of nuts, spices and an unrivaled baked sweet note.

Visually speaking, well-oxidized ebony leaves are contrasted with pale, sliced almonds, bits of cinnamon and vermillion-colored safflower blossoms. The brew is a shimmering rust color.

The aroma and flavor of Brioche are rich, nuanced and reminiscent of hot cinnamon buns, almond croissants, fine black tea and warm brioche with a touch of marmalade. It has an equally enchanting aftertaste that lasts and lasts…

This superbly balanced blend stands on its own as an indulgence, or pairs beautifully with breakfast pastries and fruity after-dinner desserts (such as Linzer tarts).

In my timolino, also in class and I’ll edit this later because CLASS IS STARTING SOON OKAY BYE.

Dude. this one is really good okay.
I love how it tastes like a cinnamon bun and tastes nice and sweet and beautiful. Definitely a sad sipdown; I want some more!

I had looked forward to sitting down with a cup of this tea on Friday. I got the email notification that my package from American Tea Room had been delivered by FedEx. Only, when I got home, the package that was propped up at my door was not mine.

I deduced that the FedEx driver got a smidge confused. I live in building 11510. The package I received was for 11512, the same condo unit number as mine. Obviously, the driver carried them out of the truck at the same time and delivered 11512 to my door. So, Saturday morning I walked the package over to 11512 and gave it to my neighbor – who had refused the package the FedEx driver attempted to deliver because it wasn’t for her.

I gotta say, when I called FedEx customer support, they bent over backwards to fix everything. I got a case number and an agent assigned to my case, who called me today to make sure I had actually gotten the package. The package upon which which someone had hilariously taped a print out of the Google street view of my address, to help the driver ID the correct building.

Anyway, I finally got my tea and I immediately tore into the Brioche. It was the sole reason I placed the order in the first place. I’ll work my way through the other teas but this was the one I wanted. I’m a giant almond nut (ha ha).

The dried tea smelled amazing. I visited Paris once and my hostel was next door to a little bakery. This tea smelled almost like that bakery (almost because there really is something about fresh-baked bread you cannot replicate).

This tea is amazing. No cream or sugar needed. I can picture the flaky French pastry I’m drinking in tea form. Absolutely divine. I can taste the bread. I don’t know how they did it!

This may become my new favorite tea. It was well worth the wait.

This is definitely an acquired taste, and I have acquired it! I wish I would acquire a taste for something cheaper. This is delicious, not burnt or bitter as I first thought. Not at all.

The tea smells exactly like a pastry or scone with raisins and almonds. I like the idea of these sweet foods, but maybe not in my tea. It doesn’t provide a superb taste.. Maybe a little bit too much raisin? Too much of the “bready” tone? I think this would be fantastic if you like the idea of drinking a breakfast pastry.

Enjoying a cup of this today after having it in my cupboard for far too long. Mmmm, this is divine. Reminds me of flaky, warm, buttery croissants and other delicious baked goods. It’s got that perfect nudge of spice to compliment the decadent silkiness. If I can’t have fresh pastries, this could definitively be a suitable alternative. Overall lovely, but for some reason I can’t see myself buying more for myself. Can’t figure out why because I really do enjoy this tea.

I received a sample of this tea from Courtney, a fellow Steepster. She was generous enough to send me some samples of teas so that I can expand my taste buds further than DAVIDs.

I couldn’t have been more pleased with the tea I chose to sample first. This one is now one of my current favorites! After drinking my first cup, I had to research all about Brioche (the pastry) and being an avid baker, will likely have to try to make myself some in the near future.

I find this tea is comparable to DAVIDs Sugar & Spice or Glitter & Gold; however, it dominates both of these in the ways of smell, taste, and smoothness. Brioche, to me, tastes like a more high quality tea. I found Sugar & Spice to have a harsh spice taste where Brioche’s flavors blend together perfectly, and I found that Glitter & Gold lacked the amount of flavor that Brioche has.

I will definitely be checking out American Tea Room and adding this tea to my wish list. Yum!
