I’ve had a long relationship with this tea. When we first met, I thought it was the most amazing thing ever. (I’m sure being introduced in a friend’s gorgeous flat in Paris helped.)
This is a perfumed tea. To me, it requires sugar, though I’m not sure milk would work.
As I’ve moved to more natural flavors, I drifted away from Marco Polo. But lately, I’ve returned. Perhaps not as enamored, but still really glad to have it. Would I restock when I’m next at Mariage Freres? Unsure. But I would eagerly gift it to a tea-loving friend.
