95
drank Prince Igor by Mariage Frères
293 tasting notes

Prince Igor is a Borodine’s Opera and a fantastic tea.
As it is a mixed black and green tea, don’t steep it too much (5 minutes are enough)
you’ll taste a fantastic and sweet taste of vanilla, agrums, red fruits and light sunflowers.

Personnaly I drink this tea in the morning but it may be a better afternoon tea as it is very perfumed and soft.

I’ve always been surprised this tea wasn’t very well known in the Mariage & Frères fabulous card.

I’d love to get your american views about it !

I like the thought of this tea. My mother sang Opera and my memories are haunting. It would be wonderful to write a review and think on those days. (By the way, my Nephew David lives in Paris and would live nowhere else in the world! He has been considering changing his citizenship because he has lived there for 10-12 years now. A handsome,educated young man too!)

I have not seen this ne available in the US. I used to sing a bit of opera and now teach voice. It would be a fun tea to try! Perhaps it can be ordered from the website and shipped to the USA.

Bonnie

Ashmanra, you teach voice?! I had no idea?! La La La La!

I’ve tried to use Mariage Frères online site and it always gives me trouble. I would probably buy the whole store if I had the money!

First, please forgive me for my English and all the grammatical mistakes you’ll find in my posts.
As English isn’t my mother tongue it sometimes makes things more difficult to express cleverly and accurately what I feel.

I was mainly in black flavoured teas, green as well if not bitter.
I’m now drinking much straight teas because my palate is now developed enough to appreciate them .

My favourite brands are : Mariage Frères,Theodor,Butiki Teas,Dammann Frères, Betjeman & Barton.
My ratings are as follow :

100 to 95 : my darlings; always in my cupboard

94 to 90 : Excellent tea, often in my cupboard

89 to 80 : very good tea, a pleasure to drink it

79 to 70: not bad even nice, why not having it sometimes, but well, not so urgent !

69 to 50 : Meh, deceptive or just not for me – but has some qualities

49 to 30 : I just don’t appreciate it

Under 30 : is this tea ?!?!?
