My friend Valérie offered me this tin + the black tea tin of Thé de Pâques for my birthday.I am very lucky to get such a friend :) she shares with me a passion for good tea and especially for Mariage Frères ones.

She told me “I know you’re not very green tea but at least if you don’t like it you’ll get the canister with the double lid”
I get the canister AND I love the green tea.

I already know the black version and can say I prefer this green version to the black. It’s a lighter version, more flowery somehow.
I get the lovely citrus and the precious vanilla with notes of crème brûlée.

Une fois n’est pas coutume, I prefer the green version. This is a mellow green without any astringency – if only all greens can be like this…

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 ?!?!?
