This is another tea that I have thanks to MissB! Canada definitely got more of the Fauchon teas than I ever saw in the States.
So I’m not usually one for mint in teas, but I bought this one anyway because I thought perhaps a small amount of mint used judiciously could work in a blend. For me, it does. Does it remind me of birthday cake? Well, not any kind of birthday cake I know. It does, however, remind me of some creamy, minty confection that is really lovely. I like a soft mint, and this is a soft mint. I think it’s kind of like buttermints… those mint candies that are creamy and just kind of dissolve in your mouth immediately. And although I usually don’t go for fruit and mint, the raspberry and mint works here for me. I could, honestly, imagine a raspberry mint buttercream frosting that would taste like this. For once, that sounds really tasty to me. :)
