55 Tasting Notes
Pure heaven in a cup! I love that this tea has teeny tiny cedar leaves peaking out from all the tea – its the prettiest tea Ive ever seen in the brewing basket, greens and purples mixed together in different shapes and textures. Once brewed it has some definite caramel and vanilla notes but its that soft woodsy cedar taste that compliments the tea flavors that really pushes this over the edge for me from a great tea to an amazingly awesome tea. Must not run out of Rivendell – must order more of this soon!!!
We were in Napa Valley this weekend and there just happened to be Dean & Deluca’s in St. Helena where i could finally pick up some Marriage Freres teas without paying ridiculous shipping charges!! So I may have gone a little crazy and brought home almost more tea than wine!!
This is delicious with bold notes of chocolate and caramel and just a touch of toffee – it was a pure delight to drink it at my desk this morning with a splash of milk and it resteeped pretty well too! (You know at $30 for 30 muslin bags of tea that I was going to resteep these at least once or twice!). Next on the list… Marco Polo!
This has unexpectantly become one of my morning work go to’s. I don’t specifically get the taste of blueberries while drinking this but I definitely taste something fruity, for some reason I want to say that I get more of a peachy, stone fruity flavor than blueberries but maybe my taste buds are just off. I’ve drunk through a 3 oz bag pretty quick and although I won’t be in a rush to restock (I have WAY to much tea right now) it will remain on my list of potential future purchases.
