I was expecting to lurve Marco Polo. I didn´t – very nice and our relationship might develop and grow, but no love at first sip. I was expecting to not particularly like Thé sur le Nil, it has lemongrass(? erva príncipe?), which I do not like. And it´s not subtle about that lemongrass, it is the main taste note to me, though there are also lemons and I thought (without any foundations since nobody mentions it) a chamomile-y sort of flavour.
But I did love this Thé sur le Nil, and left me with a very nice inner glow that nice teas leave you with. I still do not like citronella, but here it works, even for me. Really lovely and I am definetely looking to buy.
I had this with a slice of lemon meringue pie, and the combination is highly recommended.
This will probably make a fabulous iced tea.
