drank Noël by Mariage Frères
293 tasting notes

Inoffensive day to have this dear Christmas tea as Christmas is behind us now. It doesn’t make me think too much about xmas now the date is away.

It’s a comfort to sip it right now after spending 2 hours to search where my parcel amazon can be…and to chat online with the customer service.
Hopefully I’ll get my daughter’s books on Tuesday so one week after the expected date…fantastic for school…

I love the work done on citrus and spices in this tea and I think I will never get enough of it

I loved Noel when I had it in my cupboard… it is such a nice blend!! I hope Amazon smartens up!

Hello my friend. Stay warm with all the rain I’ve been seeing in your forcast lately. My nephew just returned home to Paris Monday after 8 weeks in sunny California (which has a drought). Where is your snow?

Ysaurella, I really liked this one (you had sent me a sample of it) I have a pending note on it!

@ Bonnie …no snow around but you’re right, rain everywhere ! It should be hard for your nephew after 8 weeks in California

@ TheTeaFairy : I would love to read a note from you about Noël :)

@ Tuscanteal : Amazon sent me an email saying the opposite of the previous email and discussion…terrible but Noël is really a fantastic tea, probably one of the most purchased at MF after Marco Polo

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 ?!?!?

Location

Paris, France
