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.

Do you order Mariage Freres online? Don’t they have amazing shipping? I am sure they charge me and arm and a leg to send me there goods but they are on my doorstep within the week. Glad you liked my pic too. Silly tea didn’t like sitting still! :)

I have ordered from two different places in the states. I have contemplated ordering direct and maybe will next time, but the web-site was hard to navigate.
Which is you most favorite tea from Mariage Freres? Also the violet tea from Russia sounds really great. I think I herd about that one from you?

Alicia

Well definite favorite, I can’t say yet. I am still sampling but its a tie between Jamaique because of its fragrance or The de Paques which I love to drink. It is perfect with this orange cake I make. I have quite a collection of Mariage Freres to explore so I’ll keep you posted.

I am glad to hear you have quite a collection! I have been wanting to talk to someone who has tasted them before I order them. Maybe I will have tried all 10,000 before I die! On my walk today I contemplate the alchemical magic of Marco Polo as opposed to the “just didn’t work” “Birthday” tea. How scents blend together to make something magical or something not so magical is just so neat!

Alicia

I completely agree. It’s nice to be able to find moments to explore and enjoy new things.

I have just fallen in love with drinking tea. I just think it is so very precious and I am having such fun exploring all the different wonderful possibilities. I am a psychotherapist, dancer, meditator, that has of late been experiencing tons of pleasure in nature; tea drinking included. I am grateful for this precious Earth of ours, and tea is just the most perfect of her treasures. I am also grateful for the people who have lovingly cultivated this treasure so we may enjoy it. I also love this site.
