I really liked this tea. Some might say it’s a basic breakfast tea, and it is, but I think Mariage Freres always do very fine teas.

It’s traditional, certainly, but in no way boring or bland. It is a lovely, beautiful golden colour when poured. It’s very rich, more on the aftertaste than in the beginning. It’s clear, and smooth, and a little malty and just what you need in a breakfast tea. I like that it’s not too dark and not predictable.

I had this tea black with honey, but you can also have it with milk, or without. It’s a very flexible tea, and I’d drink it again.

I smelled this and was very tempted. To the wishlist, one day, then,

I love this tea, it’s very drinkable. I just wish I had more Mariage Freres tea in my cupboard. The nice thing about it, though, is that the tea bags go a very long way so you don’t need much to last you a while.

Yes, their tea bags are very generously filled! It is something I notice, how much tea a company puts in their tea bags – MF puts 2.5 grams which is more than the standard 2 grams.

I’m so glad they fill their tea bags more than most companies, it’s definitely reflected in their teas. I also love that they’re cotton muslin tea bags – little touches like that just make such a huge difference to me when I look for new teas to try. c:
