My friend Valérie offered me this tin + the black tea tin of Thé de Pâques for my birthday.I am very lucky to get such a friend :) she shares with me a passion for good tea and especially for Mariage Frères ones.
She told me “I know you’re not very green tea but at least if you don’t like it you’ll get the canister with the double lid”
I get the canister AND I love the green tea.
I already know the black version and can say I prefer this green version to the black. It’s a lighter version, more flowery somehow.
I get the lovely citrus and the precious vanilla with notes of crème brûlée.
Une fois n’est pas coutume, I prefer the green version. This is a mellow green without any astringency – if only all greens can be like this…
