How refined, how elegant this tea is ! It’s fantastic.
I am having it after my congou keemum by Butiki Teas and I loved it so much I wasn’t expecting too much of this second tea to drink just behind.

This is THE most famous tea of Fauchon. I choose this one because I loved how its smell not because of its fame.
Brewing it and tasting it now I am particularly impressed by the way the aromas are coming on the same time: together and distinctively.
None of the aromas, vanilla lavender and citrus, are overpowering.
The 3 are working so well together, waaaa, the person who created this combination is just a genious.
The day begins on a lovely note : I had 2 teas, totally different, I really really loved for so different reasons.

So many teas that you have readily available madam. I’m so envious!

Ysaurella

hehehe but you have sooooo many available easily from your side of the Atlantic : for some I am jealous (Butiki Teas) or other very less (David’s). I may be able next month to send you some you want to try, let me know if you are interested :)

I am always interested in a swap with my european friends! I’ll try to clean out my cupboard a little of all of the samples in it before then. :)

Had this yesterday, let’s see if I can remember…

I wasn’t as into this one as Raspberry Macaron and Evening in France. It still had a beautifully layered aroma—parceling out swap samples I got to smell all of them and that appears to be par for the course with all Fauchon blends, at least the ones I’ve got—and like the others it feels more apt to describe it as scented tea than flavored as the tea itself is relatively delicate tasting given the headiness of the aroma. You get more the haunting or impression, the tail end wisp of the scent lingering in the tea upon tasting. There was an element in here that read as vaguely plasticky to me if I recall. It definitely wasn’t bad/undrinkable, I just loved the other two way more.

Advent Day 24

I’m a little surprised they didn’t put their Christmas Eve tea in this advent, especially for today. Whoever put this advent together was sleepwalking through the job. Not only did they not include their Xmas tea, but there were at least SEVEN repeats. That is seven missed opportunities to expose your audience to the range of your teas. I’m not sure if Fauchon has put out a tea only advent before, so maybe this was a test run? I’m still thrilled to have tried it, but there is disappointment mixed in there too. It’s a hard tea brand to get in the states and I do enjoy their teas so it’s exciting to have the opportunity to try sample sizes of their servings, but it’s deflating to have duplicates, especially when they are ones you weren’t thrilled with on the first cup. If they do another tea advent in the future and put more effort into the selection and variety of the teas then I’d buy it again.

Onto the tea in my cup! I have had a couple of brands of French tea called Melange and they all seem to be a vanilla orange peel combo. Melange translates to “blend”, but it seems like there is a specific blend in mind when it comes to tea. I like this one more than the others I’ve tried. The orange peel has a slightly aged flavor, meaning more mellow than the brightness of fresh peel. Vanilla mixes subtly to round out the flavors. It’s a nice cup. Not one that I’d stock because they have other blends that are similar, but more complex, but I’d happily drink another cup if it was offered.

I would think it would be more like a house blend, so specific to each company, so maybe the similar flavors are a coincidence? Or they choose flavors that are popular among their customers.

That’s just WAY too many repeats!

Dustin

I agree about it being too many duplicates!

I just searched “melange” in steepster teas and French companies that have a blend with this name that consists of orange (or citrus) with vanilla or cream. Some have more than one melange blend and some of those will have other ingredients, but they usually have one that is citrus/vanilla!
