I bought this after receiving a gift card for William Sonoma. I have had this tea on my shopping list since I first joined steepster. And I finally cracked it open. The smell that came out was amazing. Smells of strawberries, freshly baked chocolate cake, deep vanilla, and some floral. What a perfect Valentine’s Day tea! :)

The brew wasn’t as strong as it smelled. Still a lovely black tea, very enchanting. With the name Marco Polo, I was thinking more spices in the tea. I love the ending taste of the tea, that has to be the flowers. This is a very original flavor. I just wish it was more affordable.

Bio

I love cooking, sleeping, reading, reggae music, and tea. I also enjoying reading about tea, the culture and ceremonies, and the diverse types.

I think most the teas I drink are 80% iced, but on some days, it’s opposite that, especially days off! I can’t believe it took me this long to try different teas. Better now than never!

Reading the reviews help guide me to the right tea. I have been turned on to so many delightful brews.

I am ALWAYS up for swapping. Just PM me.
