From Mariage Frères

To celebrate Shanghai as the gateway to the Chinese Empire, Mariage Frères has blended a green tea-a symbol of eternal China, the shared link between lords and commoners-with exotic fruit to create a cup simultaneously stimulating and mild, sweet and fruity, with aromatic and pleasantly perfumed grace-notes.

Pour célébrer Shanghai la porte de l’Empire, Mariage Frères a associé un thé vert, symbole de la Chine de toujours, trait d’union entre les princes et les hommes, à des fruits exotiques pour une tasse à la fois tonique et douce, généreusement fruitée et sucrée, aux notes aromatiques et rafraîchissantes très agréablement parfumées.

A packaged arrived just today of which I asked a friend of mine to send me any tea straight from Paris. Being quite the tea addict as I am, he picked out probably what I consider to be the best blend made by Mariage! oh so sweet shanghai! The blossoming lotus of the Yangtze! The aromas when I first pop the tin open was the smell of spring and a distinct tea very much close to a japanese greens. The floral and fruity aspects gives a crisp, clean and bountiful tastes if not eerily similar to other blends made by Mariage. The green tea tasted a bit vegetal with a hint of nuts that compliments a fruity floral finish that always linger on the start and finish. It maybe a bit astringent and tannic after a couple sips, but still great hot or cold.

Another red fruit tea from Mariage Freres.
The taste reminds me of The à l’Opera.
It’s good flavored tea : the smell is nice and the flavour present, although the tea base isn’t strong enough in my opinion.

If a tea could be characterized as pretty, Mariage Freres’ Sweet Shanghai tea blend would be the prettiest of them all. Drinking this tea is like walking into a spring garden on the cusp of summer. It’s a green tea blend with the sweetest notes of tropical fruitiness, distinctive yet soft in litchi flavor. If you like litchi black teas, this is its springtime cousin. A bouquet of flowers in a cup, Sweet Shanghai is the perfect drink as springtime draws to a close.
