17 Tasting Notes
YA! So hard for me to even imagine that a tea other then Marco Polo could rock my world so much, this one comes close. It’s like sitting in a peach orchard having a picnic, on a sweet summer day with not a care in the world discussing how beautiful the world is, feeling how beautiful life is. it is very perfect this tea. the alchemy of the flavoring, hits that perfect note. Also I have noticed that mariage freres tea that comes in the tin is so much more fresh and alive, then their tea not in the tin. And the ingredients are just such high quality – unmistakingly high. (that word is not spelled right, but I don’t know how to spell it)
Even though it was white, it reminded me of a black tea. It is a strong white tea and there is a wild flower honey scent, less floral, more honey. The more I drank it, the more I liked it. I don’t usually add honey to my white tea, but I thought for this one, “let’s just try it”. It actually worked quite well. And I steeped it all day – 4 delicious cups. Which is the first and only time I have steeped the leaves again and actually liked the second cup.
When I saw a photo of the tea, I had to get it. Ins’t it Beautiful?! This tea is really nice, it feels like a soft bang in the morning, sweet but firm. I like it! I don’t know how to describe it well yet, as I am new to drinking tea, but I can say this: I like this tea, but not as much as Marco Polo.
