Last year I went on a euro trip with the worst travel partner ever. We had one day in Paris (which she had been to before) and she insisted on spending most of the day at the champs-elysees so she could visit a store she liked the year before. She also pushed for us to go to McDonalds in every city we visited because she’s a picky eater and had no interest in trying the food everywhere had to offer. Anyways, one plus for me being on the champs-elysees was Laduree. I knew them as a bakery that had world famous macarons so I decided once I was there I would splurge to try some. My travel partner also splurged and then bitched to me about the cost to which I said she didn’t need to buy them if she didn’t want to spend the money and she told me she HAD to because they are famous (a fact she didn’t know prior to me telling her as I made her walk in the shop).

So that kind of ruined the whole experience which is made even sadder by the fact that I really wanted to visit a Parisian tea shop and at the time realized my time in Laduree was my one chance to do that (seeing as she told me we had no time to visit a tea shop since we only had the one day). Why didn’t I realize this? Well, stupid me didn’t realize Laduree was a tea shop until Sil started posting about their teas and now that she was awesome enough to share, I realize I missed out on a good tea shop as this vanilla tea is lovely. Creamy and sweet and just vanilla deliciousness. So thank you Sil for sharing and given me the chance to indulge in the Parisian teas I missed on while I was in France!

There’s a lot to be said for travelling solo. Sorry that you had to suffer that experience.

GCTTB V2

So many fancy teas in the box! And black teas, specifically!

I cold brewed this one; I’ve been drinking a lot of cold brewed fruit teas and I wanted to switch things up a little bit just to have a break inbetween cold brews.

This was phenomenal: there’s so much vanilla flavour packed into this tea it’s insane! Seriously, a lot of “Vanilla” teas are subtle/weak but this is really in your face and I appreciate that. It still tastes very natural and it’s vanilla without being cloying vanilla. There’s some creamyness as well which adds a bit more depth, and I felt like I also got some nice malt and wood notes from the base tea. I bet you that this would make an insane latte! Maybe someone else in the line up with the box will have to try that…

Also, I want to share this SUPER CUTE Finebros reaction video! It is ‘tea’ related, afterall…

I definitely feel like the majority of their reactions are exactly the same as my reaction the very first time I tried boba. I love it now, though.

GCTTB5 box#2

I really enjoy vanilla teas and this one is no exception. It is smooth, with just that little hint of Darjeeling. The vanilla tastes fairly natural and just a little sweet. There is a slight astringency in the aftertaste.

Grabbed a delicious-smelling sample of this from Sil, and am not regretting it in the least. It’s a lovely vanilla tea (though more of a flavoured vanilla than vanilla bean), and I only discovered that it was not a standard black tea base when reading her notes tonight. Oh well, don’t think it affected anything! I think it tastes a bit too “flavoured” for it to be a tea I’d drink overly often (whereas something like Golden Orchid, I could drink almost daily), but would serve as a great treat tea.

Also, I drank this despite the fact that WHILE BREWING, I noticed that apparently there was a spiderweb in my infuser. AKA I live in a basement, and while the infuser was drying in the drying rack (maybe it had been there 1-2 days?), a spider decided to build a web in it. This is not the first time this has happened (although previously it has been in tea-filled infusers that have been sitting for a while, and I’ve noticed before re-steeping, and opted to toss the tea and thoroughly clean the infuser). Anyhow… here’s hoping I did not get extra flavour from well-boiled spider in this tea. :(

Preparation

Oh no! I have problems with spiders in my apt too but I live on the top (3rd) floor. The spiders like to hang out around my windows and, if they are small enough, crawl in.

i’m still always amazed at how different one vanilla tea can be from another. I still have a little trouble with these teas from laduree but they’re still tasty enough that i am happy to have tried them. smooth base and great taste.

THIS is the store opening on Robson, not Fauchon! Le Sigh.

Sil

haha way to ruin omgsrslys hopes and dreams…

MzPriss

But the macarons will be sooooooo worth it

MissB

Lol, we’ve talked about it already, and she said the same thing as MzPriss. Ha! It’s still good tea, and frankly… I’ll use any excuse I can to get back to France. Fauchon can be it. :P

Sil

haha

__Morgana__

Yeah, I love the differences. The ice creamy, the vanilla beany, the cookie-like, the whipped creamy. Probably more than that, even!

Marzipan

OMGsrsly

Yes! Macarons! :D :D :D :D :D
