It was my afternoon tea at the IT show, I am so glad they were proposing a Mariage Frères selection.
First time with this famous among the famous Mariage Frères tea.
Of course it wasn’t brew correctly because the waitress only had a boiling thermos bottle but anyway it wasn’t bitter at all and I had a very refined and lovely citrus tea,very energetic and refreshing.
Sure if I can retaste it in better conditions it would be one of the rare green teas I can hoard.

Preparation
Boiling 4 min, 0 sec

this is one of my all time favorites, and was a rebuy (and will be again when I do another MF splurge), can´t believe I never sent you one. I love it, along with Casablanca they are my favorite summer teas.

Ysaurella

do you have it and Casablanca hot or iced in summer ?

cteresa

I do not drink hot tea when it´s really hot, so mostly iced, if I remember to make it far in advance. though I open exceptions to hot tea when it´s summer but not hot, or after the gym – for some reason Casablanca is my number one drink for after the gym.

Ysaurella

you’re brave, I drink tea but don’t make any gym ! :)

cteresa

ah, but the gym it feels wonderful when you stop (and have your cup of casablanca….). Stopping exercise is totally addictive. And it´s nothing hardcore anyway.

Unfortunately and since I am a kid I hate sport Teresa…so agree with the fact gym is wonderful when you stop ;)

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 ?!?!?
