drank Marco Polo by Mariage Frères
7 tasting notes

Marco Polo, aka The Gateway Tea.

Before I knew Ceylon from Snapple, I tasted Marco Polo …and a life-long romance with tea was born. Scented teas don’t have the power over me that they once did, but I still get weak-kneed and watery-mouthed at the smell of Marco Polo.

A powerful tool for converting the nonbelievers.

Not that I need an excuse to buy more tea… is there somewhere stateside to buy this that’s decent, or do you have it shipped from France?

I saw it in a Williams Sonoma store, Dean and Deluca also carries it I believe

Just bought my first tin of MF Marco Polo from Williams-Sonoma in San Jose CA. Next time I try this with milk, I’ll ice it and add tapioca balls, a la Taiwanese style.
