An episode of Poirot and a nice cup of tea to start the week off right. Bliss. Wedding Impérial is an unapologetic caramel tea that’s not too sweet despite being very fragrant, no doubt the Assam base working its magic there. It has a sort of minty aftertaste which I love. Can’t feel any chocolate even though it’s in its description. Gosh it’s good. I don’t have a clue what’s wedding-like about it though as any wedding-themed tea I’ve seen so far has been a white floral. Could be an attempt at irony though I wouldn’t give snobbish Mariage that much credit.
Enjoying that a lot.

this one is now one of my fav too after have found the correct way of brewing it. I need to restock it along with Earl Grey French Blue and Pleine lune, I planned a visit to a Mariage shop on Wednesday

Oh, excellent! Happy shopping :) I’ve never tried Earl Grey French Blue, I need to look into that.

I always assumed Wedding was a pun, a joke on their own name. mariage, wedding, see?

Imperial seems to be internal code, and confirmed in their book – apparently their quality ranks are, by order of increasing quality – royal (but I can think of nome of their blends which is called that, no?), imperial (wedding imperial since they have a plain wedding blend, lapsang souchong imperial, yunnan imperial), d´argent e d´or. I expect silver needle is always just so! Not sure how true that is, but indeed they put that on print on the book.

Ooo alright, that makes more sense. Thanks for the input! They seem to put a lot of effort into their names!

Bio

I’m based in France for now, hence the overwhelming amounts of French teas I seem to accumulate. I like flavoured black tea the best and gourmand flavours seem to be all I look for. Dessert teas with nuts, chocolate, honey, vanilla. I also enjoy a good spicy tea (the hotter the better) and straight florals (especially rose).
