From Mariage Frères

Painstakingly withered and hand-rolled, mildly oxidised, and then finally heated for several hours, it is the gem of blue teas from Formosa.
Leaves: rolled into greenish-bronze pearls
Nose: floral aroma, sugared and honeyed
Liquor: a beaming jade colour; its silky texture flows with sweet, floral tones. Its rich and velvety body emanates floral tones like white flowers, quickly accentuated by notes of toasted buns, warm brioche and fresh bread. Tannic yet balanced, it leaves behind a pleasant and lingering nuance of summer honey.

At last I am finally tasting this famous tea, kind of Mariage Frères holy Grail for me.
This is an expensive tea and I didn’t want to go for a full 100g bag without tasting it. I requested a sample and they accepted. I even received a generous sample , large enough to serve 2 big mugs.

This is a low oxidation tea and a very green type of Oolong. With a name as Jade it seems quite logical.
The taste is much on the floral side rather than the biscuit side mentionned by MF. There is the typical buttery and creamy Oolong texture in this tea.
The biscuit comes more at the end of the sip for me, very light.
It reminds me a little Teguanyin green Oolong of Dammann Frères on some aspects.

I like it ,really, but now this is maybe not a tea I’ll buy to get on my cupboard. Happy to have had an opportunity to taste a sample before buying.

Glad you were able to get a sample, especially if it’s expensive!

I enjoy sampling teas like that, nice for a little variety, but 100G would get old in my cupboard, it’s just not something I want to drink every day. Glad you got to try it out. I love sample sizes!

I was afraid they can refuse as the tea is an expensive one.We should dare asking for samples !
