A decadent and delicious floral gourmand which is quite addictive! Laduree teas are pricey but worth every penny!

A VariaTEA share that I tried out today!

I spent most of my time drinking this blend trying to figure out exactly what kind of citrus note I was getting from the cup – but even though it never did taste like anything more than a sweet but generic citrus profile with a floral undertone I will admit that I liked this one a fair bit, and quite a bit more than the other Laduree blend I had not all that long ago. It’s definitely got that distinct European flair/style, but for a blend that really doesn’t taste like much of anything clear it’s pretty lovely!

Also, I just looked up the ingredients and there’s like a million different kinds of citrus oils/flavours mixed into this one – so that makes me feel a whole lot better about not knowing exactly what citrus I was getting. Turns out I was basically getting all of them. Or, at the very least, a lot of them…

Now it’s time to catch up on some older purchases that I have somehow never logged.

This one suspiciously looks like it has darjeeling in it, what with the greenish leaves even though the ingredients are listed as black tea only. I suspect the “Indian black tea” is a darjeeling, which is really not my favorite, BUT this one isn’t so bad. I brewed it cool and the darjeeling is few and far between enough to not be astringent.

This is a nice citrusy tea with lots of grapefruit flavor along with some other lemon/lime/orange notes. It’s a nice tea, although not overwhelmingly awesome. Tasty, but I’m not reaching for it often. I need to remember that it is not as finicky as it might seem with the darjeeling.

so busy! I’ve had this a couple times now thanks to VariaTEA and i think i’m landed on not for me. It’s a little too floral, but mostly it’s just not…strong enough? bold enough? It’s like the quiet kid sitting at the back of the class…could be brilliant, might just be a lazy ass…but we won’t find out ‘cause they’re all the way back there doing who knows what lol.

And we probably don’t really want to know what they are up to :)

hhahha, fab description. I know that kid. I know that kind of tea. Now, I just need to try this one to see how well that matches up.

This is citrusy and a bit perfumey. I blame age considering the best before date on this is last year. I may toss the remaining teabags.

I love this tea. And that’s saying a lot from a person who doesn’t really love strong black teas in their tea blends. So easy to sip. Powerful black braces with no astringency no it delicately balances the floral and citrus components. Hubs got me 125g of this for Valentines. How he got it to the states is his secret but I can tell him it’s worth it. I’ll drink all of this I know it. It’s delicate and so flavorful. Perfect balance. Not what I would describe as a fruity tea in any way. It’s really incomparable

A friend kindly served me a cup of this tea! The aroma and taste are very calming and goes down smooth. The fancy nylon teabag is a nice touch as well :) The jasmine and lemon are definitely at the forefront however there is a subtle scent of lavender. Definitely to be enjoyed on special occasions!

Light, bright, clean black tea that doesn’t need milk or sugar to make it a delicious treat (and I almost always add milk and sugar to my black teas so this is really something).

This tea has a warm orangey-brown liquor, and powdery smell like rocket candies and pineapple when brewed. The tea has citrusy sweet notes, but they float on top of the strong base of a delicious blend of refined black teas that lack any bitter astringency, a smooth and sippable charm I’ve found in Ladureé’s Jardin Bleu and Ladurée blends as well.

Flavors: Citrusy, Dark Wood, Pineapple

I’ve been absent for quite a while. But that is only because I have been traipsing through Europe. I’m not going to lie, it was amazing.

I picked up some really great teas. Not as many as I would have like to but they only let you bring back so much. Ha ha. Someone in customs needs to really start drinking tea so they would just understand.

This is the only Laduree tea I picked up. There were so many I wanted to get it was hard to decide.

This was smells beautiful. It is very citrusy, slightly floral.

The tea base is moderately bold, it is bolder than I thought it would be, I feel like there is a slight smokiness to the base. I know this sounds weird but the smokiness makes the tea more “garden-like”. There are notes of citrus, more so grapefruit I think. There is a floral undertone, it is definitely rose. There is a slight sweetness to the tea. I think if there was a bit of rock sugar added it would really make the citrus flavours pop. This tea is really smooth.

Impressed with this one. I am happy this is the one I chose.
