From Mariage Frères

A paean to love.

This glamorous blend is steeped in the passion that weds the malty power of golden Assam tea leaves to the sweetness of notes of chocolate and caramel.

Perfect clarity.
Evidence of a peerless marriage.

The smell when you open a new pot of Wedding Imperial is such an amazing burst of caramel. I thought the tea might be too sickly to drink on a regular basis – but I was wrong – the caramel aroma is more subtle when the tea is in the cup – this is delicious and especially good with cakes or anything nutty or chocolatey – and equally good on its own. Delicious.

A sample from Shmiracles!

I’ve been saving this one for a time when I felt I deserved it, and I’ve worked so hard recently I felt that day had finally come. I love this. I knew I’d love it. Dry, it smells pretty amazing. Biscuitty, caramelly, sweet…it smells like a caramel tea SHOULD smell, in the best of all worlds. While brewing, the base tea comes out in the scent a little more, and adds its own malty sweetness to the overall profile.

To taste, this is just…divine. It’s smooth, it tastes like the richest, most decadent caramel dessert imaginable. It’s creamy, sweet, heavenly deliciousness. The assam base pokes out a little in the aftertaste, but it’s robust maltiness is so well matched to the caramel flavouring that it enhances, rather than detracts from, the overall experience. I’m a fan of assam at the best of times, but here, and in this combination, it’s more perfect than ever.

I’m in love. Huge thanks to Shmiracles for sharing some of this with me!

My dad picked up an ounce of this at an unidentified specialty food store, and I’m just going to have to make him identify it, because wow. This is some luxurious tea.

The dry leaves smell really sweet, sort of like vanilla caramel. I saw that people were having issues with bitterness, so I kept my steep time at 3 minutes (per usual) and used a bare teaspoon of leaf and never had a problem at all. In fact, this is the creamiest tea I’ve had to date. It feels amazing in my mouth and really does taste like milk chocolate caramel. I think the assam is present enough to keep it from being too sweet, but I can see this being classified as a decadent dessert tea. (My dad says it had better be fantastic at the price he paid, so I am definitely not going to ask him, haha.)

Truly sad to see the bottom of the bag on this one.

First found this tea when visiting my sister in CA. It is amazing. Very smooth taste and smells wonderful. My goofy brother-in-law took the sachet and used it as a airfreshener in his truck.
