drank Marco Polo by Mariage Frères
1832 tasting notes

When JacquelineM sent me a sample tin of this a while ago, hubby would pick up the tin and sniff appreciately now and then but he was too busy at work to have tea with me and taste it. I finally got him to try it a few days ago and he LOVES it. This is a big deal since up to now he would only drink varying forms of mild Ceylon teas!

He drank a WHOLE POT with his half of the toasted Everything Bagel for lunch. How fortunate that I am getting TWO tins of it for Christmas! :) I was a little deflated, however, when he said, “Mmmm, tastes like Crunchberries.” Not exactly a high falutin’ description of a premium tea, but he DOES love Crunchberries so I supposed it is high praise!

Bio

I am a music teacher and homeschooling mom who started drinking loose leaf tea about five years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens and oolongs.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.

My avatar is a mole in a teacup! Long story…
