I want to love this tea, but it is so hard. I love the other Mariage Freres, but this one has a twinge that isn’t so great.
I was once at a house party, and after spending the night I made boiled water in a clean saucepan, as this house had no kettle. Drinking the tea, I couldn’t help but notice it tasted distinctly noodley and salty. My friend told me that she had used that saucepan to make ramen the night before. Ick.
This tea reminds me of that day, every single time I drink it. Oh well.
