drank Bal Masqué by Mariage Frères
11 tasting notes

The vanilla note is very subtle, overpowered by the lavender. I might need to try serving this in different ways and it might grow on me more – although it reminds me of spa facials as the lavender is quite pronounced. I’m going to try it as an iced tea – which will probably suit it.

I love great tea – and I’m getting into gourmet tea to reduce my interest in gourmet food in order to lose some weight. Tea brands I can access easily near my offices and home are from Fortnum & Mason and PureTea – which are delightful. However my real passion is collecting tea and related items from Mariage Freres – and as a marketer I think their brand and story is just brilliant.
