I received this in a swap as well. The sample wasn’t very large so I oversteeped what I did have. It’s a little perfumy to the nose…maybe more like Cologne. It’s not as dark in color as I thought it would be but then again that may have been due to the amount that was steeped. It’s a pleasant cup but no individual tastes come thru too much to be individually identified. I can taste a very little bit of a vanilla-bourbon type aftertaste if you really think about it. Regardless..it’s ok…I would like to try more from this company if I could ever find it.


EDITED NOTE***
I tend to use a larger Tea Cup so…I think this had a lot to do with it. Had I used a regular size cup I am sure it would have been stronger and darker. I really did like it and hope to find more of this brand locally.

Sorry you thought they were small samples! I always use 1 tsp/cup, which is what I sent. How much do you use?

Hi there! Actually I was using a BIG Cup so…it was prob my fault…lol…should have mentioned that. I thought they were both good tho! Thanks! At least I’m thinking this is Mel!!! :P I usually use about a Tablespoon’s worth but that is also for a bigger leaf…so with the size of the tea that you had – it was cut very fine – it worked well. Thanks again! Now I am super excited to try and find more of the Mariage Freres! teehee…
