Not bad. Just… not enough mandarin orange to go with the nuttiness. This might be due to age, though.

Thank you, MissB. :)

Edit: Needless to say I didn’t make it to the mall. Might go to a local store though, since the rain seems to have let up a bit maybe. I might go to the mall tomorrow morning…

The dry leaf smells like that orange, tacky, peanut-shaped marshmallow-type, cheapo candy… Circus Peanuts! Yeah! Like a too sweet vitamin C chewable tablet and with a slight nutty wash to it.
The flavor is vaguely sweet, but mostly it tastes like a true hazelnut. Dust-flavored skin and all. The vague sweetness may in fact be coming from the mandarin flavor, but I will never know. It is about as orange flavored as generic Orange Pekoe, which is to say, a brighter flavored black tea.
Regardless, it reminds me of my beloved orange blossom earl grey from Twinings, and for that, I will gladly drink down the rest of my sample. Thanks, MissB!

I initially asked Sil for a sample fo this quite a while ago, being that it is a newer blend from Fauchon and I always want to try their stuff. Unfortunately, some postal service and/or customs seems to have swallowed that tea package because it is still MIA. Booo. I did, however, get a sample of this tea from MissB, so I do get to try it still.

This is definitely very nutty, almost chestnut more than hazelnut. It reminds me a bit of Chauds Marrons from Lupicia, but without the smokiness. Very sweet, candied-like. I don’t get a ton of citrus/mandarin flavor, but I suppose it is there in the background. Pretty tasty, and I’m happy to have it again, but I am glad I got a sample before buying a whole tin because it’s just not the kind of tea I would be able to drink a lot of.

Boiling 3 min, 0 sec 2 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML

well i’m really glad you still got to try it! stupid customs/post office

whoops… thought i’d saved this tasting note and then accidentally closed it by navigating away. ugh. Well this is from hours ago and another of the teas from MissB I had high hopes for this one but it turns out that this falls into that fauchon black category that just never seems to work for me no mwatter what the tea is. I can drink their oolongs and their herbals but make it a black and whatever base it is that they use, just doesn’t work. I get hints of the mandarin from this one but overall it’s just a slightly sweet orange ish kinda tea. Sorry missb! doesn’t work for me but i appreciate the try!

Dinosara

Oh I really want to try this one. It’s new this year, I think. I do happen to love Fauchon’s black base, so I should be ok. :)

Sil

did you want me to send you a sample?

Dinosara

Oh I didn’t mean for this to sound like I was fishing for a sample. I know you have your tea gals that you swap with often and I’m sure they’d like to try it.

(Of course I wouldn’t say no to a swap, but I don’t know if I have anything you’re interested in right now)

Sil

haha i didn’t take it that way. As for the tea, MissB has sent us inordinate amounts of tea…i can send you a sample of this one, especially as it’s one you wanted to try. The girls here are mostly just happy with trying any of the teas that we get!

One of the blends you can only buy in store, it looks like. Preferred hot over cold… Hot it was amazing. Thick, sweet, like a Nutella orange. As it cooled something got weird, saccharine, bitter… The orange I think? Maybe the sweetener I used.

Flavors: Chocolate, Hazelnut, Orange

Sil

interesting
