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.
