drank Paris by Harney & Sons
1112 tasting notes

Call me excessive…but I had this again for my evening tea! I’m just crazy for it! I do think it’s a homage to Marco Polo – it’s different – more raspberry/currant rather than strawberry, more baked custard rather than cream, and not floral, so I think there is a place for both in my cupboard, but I do think dear Marco was the inspiration for it.

My husband pronounced it “girly.”(he’s not a big fan of Marco Polo either!) Hmph!

I’m still trying to figure out why they say lemony bergamot. All I get is berry/current/plum from this tea. My wife concurs, she loves this tea so we always have a tin.

Ughhh with all of the good reviews of this I think I need to try the bit that’s waiting for me! You make this sound absolutely wonderful! Wheee!

you are now the second person i’ve seen in the past day rate this above 95. I’m really really interested in this tea now….

Hmm, now I really need to get me some Paris the next time I purchase from Harney. I didn’t like Marco Polo either. Must not be a guys tea =]

Jacqueline- I thought the same thing when I tried it about Marco Polo being it’s inspiration. I like them both too I found Marco Polo to be a bit sweeter in flavor.

Bio

I love to cook, bake, read, paint, knit, do needlework, and garden. I need my coffee, but I LOVE my tea. I work at an Art School, and attend a large public university doing post-bac work (my BA is in English). I’m interested in the liminal spaces between art and craft, the academic and the practical, the individual and community, and the old and the new. I’m currently exploring these ideas through the disciplines of education, literature, history, and psychology.

I enjoy writing tasting notes, but have decided not to numerically rate teas as of 9/14/10. For an explanation, see my looooong tasting note about Mountain Malt from the Simple Leaf.

My favorites:
Chinese black teas
A good “milk and sugar” English style black
Earl Grey (classic, and in all variations!)
Vanilla teas (classic, and in all variations!)
Jasmine, Rose, Violet and other froofy, flowery teas!
An Occasional Oolong
Flavored Rooibos
Herbal Tisanes
