This is likely the exact same blend as in their old Raspberry Macaron packaging but I added this to the library when I initially got this anyway. The dry leaf smells ultra rosy and there is a generous smattering of pink peppercorns here and there.

It’s like drinking liquid rose petals with an ultra astringent Darjeeling base. Such a dry mouthfeel, even with milk. There is no almond in this whatsoever, so it definitely doesn’t resemble a macaron, in my opinion. As for the raspberry, I only get a tiny hint of it in the aftertaste, like a good two minutes after my last sip. Not my favourite Fauchon. I think this would have worked better with a not-so-astringent base and perhaps a more prominent almond note. Maybe not so much rose, either. That says a lot coming from a rose fan!

Yep, that sounds like the same Raspberry Macaron. I felt the exact same way about it, too.
