drank Toffee by Le Palais des Thes
1350 tasting notes

Another one from the massive LPdT order, and another one of the ones that I was very excited about trying. Just the name!

Taste the word. Toffeeeeeee. It’s an onomatopoeia (look it up), that word.

The aroma of these leaves! I- it’s- they- I’m- SWOONS!

They’re all chocolate-y and vanilla-y, and all in all it turns into, like, super-caramel, even though it doesn’t actually say anything about there being caramel anywhere in this at all. But there must be, mustn’t there? Or how could they call it toffee?

After steeping, it’s the same picture of super-caramel. It’s smells all rich and butter-y. It’s like a vanilla fudge! It smells like a sweetie shop! Even if I find I don’t like the flavour I might still make it now and then just to smell it.

This is either really really REALLY good, or it’s unbearably cloying. I’m concerned now. pokes it

OH my CEILING CAT!

You! Guys!

There are NO WORDS!

First some cocoa, then vanilla and then a soft, fudge-y, butter caramel-y finish.

You know how I always said that Kusmi’s caramel black was my perfect caramel? Let’s just say it suddenly has competition.

I’m in no state to be more detailed than this. I’m so blown away, I can’t think. Socks are well and truly knocked into orbit.

I love reading your tea notes. They make me feel better when I am feeling blue. Especially this one. I picture you to be a hyperactive kitten. Must be the ceiling cat.

You’ve got me drooling. Luckily I have Banana Oolong to comfort me. I really need to start poking through the offerings of other tea vendors…

I don’t see this on their US website, how sad.
