Visiting Mariage’s shop,I was hesitating in shop between this tea and Montagne d’or.
Not sure I made the right choice regarding my taste.
Montagne de Jade is a green tea, really grassy but incredibly perfumed on the other hand.
Dry leaves just smell fantastic and you’ll find many corn flowers mixed with tea leaves:it’s just so beautiful.
Drinking it, you’re leaving the 21th centuary and come back in 19th centuary…you’re sitting in a Victorian living room with 3 grand aunts, you have the most beautiful bone china tea cups of the town…and you can hear the loud tick ticking of the large clock behind you …so relaxing…

It sounds magic but…there is a but…

My concern…but it is really my own concern with green teas is the bitterness.
Montagne de Jade is made for green teas lovers I think. This tea is really one of the best sellers of this brand and I am sure this is for its high qualities.
Unfortunately I am not susceptible to its undeniable and numerous charms

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 ?!?!?
