Thanks to cteresa for sending me this!
I love mariage freres tea, however never tried their teabags.
The muslin teabags looked so cute!

When I opened it, I smelled something very fruity.
I couldn’t wait to try it so I brewed in a pot. Maybe I added too much water?
When I brewed it, I couldn’t smell much fruits anymore.

In terms of taste – it was very mild, easy to drink.
No bitterness, just very mild green tea taste.

Overall, I liked it! I just wish I brewed it better.
Interestingly though, after I finished a pot and smelled a pot, it smelled just like the tea leaves. I don’t know why I couldn’t sense the scent when I was drinking.

I love tea! :)

I love good flavored tea, mostly floral or fruity or sweet/dessert flavored tea works for me. My favorite brand so far are mariage freres, ronnefeldt, teagschwendner, TWG (not twinings), lupicia, silverpot so I guess Japanese or European brand works for me. I find most of american brand are mellow and weak in flavors.

However, recently, my interested moved from flavored tea to classic/chinese tea. I like good oolong tea (I hate bad oolong tea!!) such as si ji chun or ti kuan yin. I love good milky oolong too! Jin Jun Mei or dong fang meiren are another good one however it’s hard to find good quality ones. (maybe I’m being picky)

If you have any good tea to swap, feel free to pm me! I have lots of tea that are not listed in my cupboard as well. I love swapping so that I can get to try new tea :D

P.S. I love collecting tea wares (mostly teacups, but open to t-cozy and other tea accessories) Feel free to pm me if you have something you want to swap! :)
