drank Paris Mon Amour by Fauchon
2201 tasting notes

I’m going to do a tasting note for this one (#56) now, even though I actually drank it a couple of weekends ago, because it’s a home/weekend tea, and it’s Monday, so if I don’t retroactively write this note it will get lost in the rest.

The reason that this is a home/weekend tea is that it has an Assam base, and is way to strong/astringent for me without additions. It does, however, make the best Hong Kong-style rose milk teas. I used a recipe from Lupicia that I always keep on my fridge. De-licious.

I am tea obsessed, with the stash to match. I tend to really enjoy green oolongs, Chinese blacks, and flavored teas with high quality bases, especially florals, bergamot-based teas, and chocolate teas.

In my free time I am a birder, baker, and music/movie/tv addict.

Here are my rating categories, FYI:
100-90: Mind-blowingly good, just right for my palate, and teas that just take me to a happy place.
89-86: I really really like these teas and will keep most of them in the permanent collection, but they’re not quite as spectacular as the top category
85-80: Pretty tasty teas that I enjoy well enough, but definitely won’t rebuy when I run out.
79-70: Teas that I would probably drink again, but only if there were no preferrable options.
69-50: Teas that I don’t really enjoy all that much and wouldn’t drink another cup of.
49 and below: Mega yuck. This tea is just disgusting to me.
Unrated: Usually I feel unqualified to rate these teas because they are types of teas that I tend to not like in general. Sometimes user error or tea brewed under poor conditions.
