Doulton’s Shakespeare: A Tasting Note in 5 Acts
Act II scene 7

If music be the food of love, play on,
Give me excess of it; that surfeiting,
The appetite may sicken, and so die.
Twelfth Night, Act I scene 1

Last night I was going through my Shakespeare box trying to decide what I’d have this morning. I settled on the Vinegar Black and then I had my choice narrowed down to two Culinary Teas. As I looked back and forth between the two a realization dawned on me: I had been seeing the name of this tea as “Grand Mariner” which I felt fit into the British theme of this box quite well. Oh. It’s actually “Grand Marnier” like the liqueur. ::facepalm:: I laughed and decided that this would follow the Vinegar — sort of a sweet and sour experience.

I have never had Grand Marnier on its own, and as far as I know I haven’t had it as part of a meal or mixed drink. So I am unable to judge whether or not this lives up to its namesake. When I opened the packet it was like an orange creamsicle. Yum. The cup maintains that orange creamsicle smell but gains the fragrance of Ceylon. The taste is more Ceylon, but the aroma is all about the creamsicle. I’d imagine that this would be crazy-good with cream or sugar. This also would be perfect with the right sort of dessert. I may have to try this iced. If this is great iced, then this may be added to the reorder list from Culinary Teas.

I dub this tea the play Twelfth Night. Partially since it kicks off with a shipwreck (a tip of the hat to my misreading of the tea’s name), and also because Twelfth Night (The Feast of Epiphany) kicks off the New Orleans’ Mardi Gras season and this tea would fit right into all the revelry — from the parties on Bourbon to the elaborate balls. This tea is a light fun sort of dessert tea and I’m having a good time with it. NE

He hee – that reminds me of when we rented the Hitchcock film Marnie, and I misread the title as Marine. I was looking for themes of underwater, fish, boats – nada – Finally I said to my husband when it was done, “But why was the title Marine?” and of course he burst out laughing and I’ve never lived it down ;)

LOL! Thanks for sharing — I shall think of both of our stories every time that I make this tea and I’ll smile. :D

I love Grand Marnier…either with Duck a la Orange, in chocolate truffles, or in a stiff drink. This tea captures the flavor of it well. This is one of the best orange flavored teas I’ve ever had. It was a creamy like background to it that I love, but not to the point of being a orangesicle. Makes for a great iced tea. I like the black base in it, too. It has some orange zest in it and yellow petals from some flower.

Nice review I like orange but the zest kind scares me alittle is it extremly tart?

Mel

It’s not tart at all. It was really smooth. I am not a fan of bitter citrus teas. I really like this one.

Had this tea rated at 82, but had to lower it. It just isn’t sweet enough… Drank it iced today, with extra sweetener, but the orange flavor was very faint… the tea completely overpowered it, and made even the slight hint of orange taste burnt and completely unappealing. Finished for the caffeine, but didn’t enjoy a sip.
