From Mariage Frères

A magic essence.

Jade, an emblem of perfection and purity, symbolises the harmony between heaven and earth. A jade-coloured green tea has been gracefully blended with the mysterious fragrances of the famous ‘Montagne d’Or’ tea.

A silken elixir, a potion of peace.

Hmmmm my preferences run to black teas instead of green. That being said, this isn’t a terrible tea. It’s a little perfumey for me, but it’s not a terrible tea. As i’ve come to see, marriage blends their teas very well so that you get both the flavours and the tea base. Would i purchase this for myself? No, but only because I am not overly a fan of floral/perfumey type green teas.

Thank you Ysaurella for sharing this with me! :)

Sil

On the upside my friend from work really loved this one last night!

Ysaurella

if he/she is a green tea lover I’m not surprised.
Mariage blended it perfectly, the aromas are just incredible for flowery teas amateurs.

Visiting Mariage’s shop,I was hesitating in shop between this tea and Montagne d’or.
Not sure I made the right choice regarding my taste.
Montagne de Jade is a green tea, really grassy but incredibly perfumed on the other hand.
Dry leaves just smell fantastic and you’ll find many corn flowers mixed with tea leaves:it’s just so beautiful.
Drinking it, you’re leaving the 21th centuary and come back in 19th centuary…you’re sitting in a Victorian living room with 3 grand aunts, you have the most beautiful bone china tea cups of the town…and you can hear the loud tick ticking of the large clock behind you …so relaxing…

It sounds magic but…there is a but…

My concern…but it is really my own concern with green teas is the bitterness.
Montagne de Jade is made for green teas lovers I think. This tea is really one of the best sellers of this brand and I am sure this is for its high qualities.
Unfortunately I am not susceptible to its undeniable and numerous charms

Thanks Ysaurella for sending me this lovely green tea!

The dry leaves are so wonderfully fragrant… sweet-smelling like potpourri. Some people may be put off by the strong perfume, but that’s exactly what I like about MF’s flavoured teas. :) When brewed the beautiful fragrance is fully translated into fruity and flowery flavours in the liquor. I can’t tell the kind of fruits or flowers they use though… MF wants to keep the formula “mysterious”, apparently. The green tea base is great too. It is very delicate, not too grassy, and it has a sweet finish. It can get a bit bitter when it cools so I would really recommend drinking it hot.

I’ve just realized that this is my first green MF tea… and I am loving it :)

I am really happy you liked this one.I’s one of the brand green teas best sellers and it was not for me but I know a lot of green tea lovers are really addicted to Montagne de Jade.

I’m drinking this tea out of my new birthday mug, and it’s been poured from my new birthday teapot. I have named the latter Freddie, after the character Freddie Miles in The Talented Mr. Ripley, because it’s fat-yet-elegant, showy and has weird colouring. Birthdays aren’t very gifty to me, unlike Christmas – I’d rather get together with friends and chosen family for activities and Symbolic Things. I prefer getting myself birthday gifts – small things I don’t really need, but that make me happy. So on Monday I was out all day on a magpie spree with my special sweetface Em. When I got this, they offered to deliver it for me. I mean. It’s a tiny teapot. It was hilarious. When it had been settled that it did, in fact, fit quite easily into my bag, they knocked €2 off. It really cracked me up.

My friend T. inspired me to pick this up (Hey T. – good news, I have enough to share!) She’s been ogling it for a while and I figured I’d do us both a service and act as a test subject. I wanted something fit for spring – complex, floral, but yet light and not too overwhelming. Mariage Frères definitely delivered on all accounts. First of all, this is a beautiful tea. Long, thin, needly leaves in various dark shades of green, the occasional light leaf breaking it up nicely, and an absolute abundance of lovely petals.

Scent wise, it excites me a lot, because to me, this is the spring counterpart of Marco Polo Vert – and that, to me, is the ultimate green tea for autumn, with its thick fruity ripeness. This has the same boozy character, but it’s a light, floral booziness. A perfect spring tea party tea – when I close my eyes I see tiers and tiers of dainty sandwiches and cakes.

I’m sometimes frustrated by teas that have no discernible, individual flavours, but in this case the multifaceted florality present in each sip is like a lovely, delicate veil of tea. It’s perfectly achieved, and I’m very pleased with this one. Like most Mariage Frères teas in my collection, it has a very clearly defined personality that grows on me with each sip.

Anyway, one of the Symbolic Things I did yesterday was to dye my hair for the first time in… well, forever. I have never altered my hair colour, ever, in any manner whatsoever, during my 34 years. We went with chocolate, tobacco and a dash of gold. In other words, just like my own hair, only without the greys that emerged overnight some time in late November. http://tinyurl.com/qe7jd58

I love my pervy old uncle Rick.

YAY birthday mugs and teapot!

Sil

__Morgana__

Happy birthday and I agree with Sil. Your hair looks amazing! Great color, but even greater curl!

__Morgana__

(Not but. And. And even greater curl.)

Anna

Thanks, guys. <3 I think we went through a whole bottle of wine just doing those curls, haha.

Sil

i could stare at that pic alllll day long…

Anna

You can touch it if you wanna.

keychange

For a second I thought everyone was commenting on your pervy uncle’s picture. I’m sure you look fabulous! and tell me mooore about your birthday mug!

caile

Oh my goodness, your hair is beautiful!! And, happy birthday!

Anna

Oh, uncle Rick is way prettier than me, I’m definitely not posting a picture with both of us in it.

I got my birthday mug at a somewhat unexpected place – Benetton! They’re currently doing a line of mugs with graphic prints that I really like.

The shape is simple, straight-up cylindrical with a simple handle. The base/background is white, and the pattern consists of circular shapes in a light turquoise. They resemble stylized daisies, with the white background showing through in the centre, and between the ‘petals’. They’re distributed symmetrically across the mug, and the ‘daisies’ in the vertical rows are kept together by very thin lines. I like how the pattern doesn’t go all the way up/down to the top/bottom of the mug, but that there’s white space along the edges.

…and here’s a picture for the sighted: http://tinyurl.com/mkxfpes

That’s a great description. The mug sounds lovely…and glad there’s a pic for the visually advantaged!

Sil

haha i love that keychange… visually advantaged. :)

Kat_Maria

Happy birthday, liberated Rapunzel! I love your hair way too much than is decent :D

Anna

You can also touch it if you wanna.

Ysaurella

I’m happy you love Montagne de Jade because it didn’t work at all for me but I recognize it as a very high quality tea.
and of course you look like a princess with such hair !

Anna

It can sometimes be particularly frustrating when you find one of those teas you know are really exquisite and of the highest quality, and then you still don’t like them.

And nooo, not a princess – I look like a ninja assassin!

Ysaurella

you’re a Ninja Princess ;)
