Haven’t had this one in a while, and decided to revisit it without any milk or cream and just a little sugar. This really let the strength of the tea base come through, which was good. It has a fair bit of astringency and is very aromatic with the smell of a nice Irish whiskey. That slightly heady aroma fits in nicely with the season, as it evokes for me mince pies, plum puddings, and other sweets which have been fortified with a shot of something a little stronger to keep you warm. I think this tea would pair nicely with any of those types of treats.

Bio

Grandma introduced me to tea as a kid (lipton with milk and sugar; a bit poured into the saucer to cool it down and then sipped from there), and I’ve never looked back. Still have a slight preference for teas that go well with milk (or even better, cream) and sugar, but since Grandma’s day I’ve branched out to appreciate green and white teas, rooibos and pu erh. Absolutely love Mariage Freres!
