Not THE Marco Polo, and seriously nothing like it. And the geek in me wants to point out that historically calling this “red” (pu-erhish?) with spices tea after Marco Polo seems a bit more likely than the very french, fruity and refined Mariage Freres blend. This is a little bit more like a silk road in the 14th century drink.
Nice. Be careful with steeping times though or it can get overbrewed in an instant.
