3 Tasting Notes

‘Elegant’ is my best descriptor for this tea. It isn’t hearty like Irish breakfast tea: to me it’s more of an afternoon tea, to be lingered over. I have been drinking it for a couple of years and still not figured out what the subtle tastes are — perhaps it’s malt, as the blurb says. It doesn’t need to “go with” any kind of food. It’s interesting all by itself.

This tropical fruit-flavored black tea is especially nice in the summer. It is mild, with passion fruit notes.

I have always loved Mariage Freres teas, until this one. It is deeply disappointing. The aroma is close to cheap caramel. I do get some vanilla notes in the flavor.
