My first Mariage Freres tea. Upon opening the package, the tea smells lemony w/other fruity fragrances. The tea is very tangy but yet not overly strong in lemon flavor. The frangrance from the brewed tea is perfumey and is not even similar to the tea taste…

This would be excellent iced w/a little sugar thrown in….Or even frozen like a sorbet on a hot day…

This is my second green tea I had blended by a French company. And both teas manage to be subtle, sophisticated, and flavorful… At the same time, I can never identify any discrete flavors

Wondering where everyone gets their Mariage Freres? Do you order through a third party online retailer? Or do you have a place like Williams Sonoma that you go in person?

Try culturedcup.com (in Dallas)

They even sell 1oz. amounts for ~$5.00 (depending on the MF blend) so you can try a variety before placing an order. They have a HUGE selection (but were out of Marco Polo when I placed my order). Shipping was generally prompt and the tea arrived in those heavy duty black ziploc bags. I believe that if you purchase a tea in the larger amounts they can send you one of those MF tins…

Tea-filled blessings to you Lori! Will visit culturecup for sure! Thanks! and boy do I sure love those tins! Starting to collect tea tins (like I don’t have enough teaware and accessories already! Sheesh!) ;)

Bio

Just a few months ago the only tea I drank was hot lipton tea at work, an occasional mint tea, and sweet iced tea.. Then my daughter got me some loose leaf teas for Christmas and then, my tea addiction began…..

And what better way to get lots of dessert flavors w/o the calories?

I prefer my tea with a tinge of sugar. Is that cheating? But to me , the combination of sugar and tea is like salt and cooking- both bring out the natural flavors.

My tea drinking has evolved into a set routine: a breakfast blend in the AM, some flavored blacks during the day, late afternoon or evening flavored green/white, herbal (usually spicy, chai inspired) at night.

Not into unflavored greens/whites yet. Just started appreciating unflavored blacks and am thinking that smoky teas may become my favorite…
When I am not drinking tea, I am working as an engineer, reading, watching some of the better TV shows (like Damages and Breaking Bad), practicing my yoga, cooking, gardening, and spoiling my two miniature poodles (Coco and Timmy)…
