From Mark T. Wendell

We have carefully blended this tea in memory of a dear friend of ours. He liked his tea strong in character, yet smooth enough to enjoy after that perfect meal. Our Manhattan Tribute Blend is the perfect combination of Indian, Formosan and Ceylon teas, devised for late day and after dinner consumption when the palate is satiated. When brewed, it produces a bold cup with a slightly floral note. We invite you to enjoy a great cup of tea and help out a worthy cause in the process.

Ugh… I definitely overdid it on the caffeine yesterday because I couldn’t fall asleep until 2 am and then had a hard time getting out of bed this morning. I had to start the morning off with a coffee and now I’m drinking this brew, which I haven’t had for a long time.

Mark T. Wendell has some very solid teas, especially black teas. I’m surprised they aren’t more popular on Steepster. I was thinking about ordering some of their assam recently, but there’s so many places for me to buy tea in San Francisco it seems a bit ridiculous to have it shipped all the way from Massachusetts unless I’m ordering a bunch of stuff.

Anyway, this is a blend of black teas with formosa oolong, and that gives it a lighter and more fruity taste. This is a good afternoon tea, or a lighter morning tea. I find it very flavorful. This morning I am getting lovely malty notes. I shouldn’t be neglecting this so much, it’s really a delightful cuppa. I’d get this again if I place another order with MTW.

one of the reasons i dont get their teas is huge amount, no samples and expensive shipping. Sad, otherwise I would.


It would be nice if all tea companies offered samples!


Agree. I wanted to order a tea fr them. $24 and $8 ship. Why? Also when they have sale in July on 1lb only. It’s probably for someone who drinks 1-2 teas and has to restock once a year.


Sample sizes and reasonable shipping are always what make or break it for me.


maybe we should band together and write them a letter? In other news I think the dashboard is stuck" again as I haven’t seen any new notes for 7 hours.


Same here. One of my one notes from last night isn’t even showing up on the dashboard though it’s in my tasting notes :(


Dashboard still frozen. One the bright side, this note has been at the top for 20 hours or so. :P


Might be worth contacting them and seeing if they have anyone local to you who carries their line.

Having another cup of this today…it certainly hits the spot! Semi-Malty, Semi-Chewy…I really must want a croissant today or something…it seems to be something I crave…which is really weird…because I don’t think I have EVER had a craving for a croissant…EVER…in my life…or in previous lives! (LOL)


Croissants………….. mmmmmmmmmmmm :P


Ditto what JonTea said. Yay for chewy, bready teas!


Yay for croissants and chewy bready teas. :)


ooooooh croissants!!!!! ***drooling***


I’m thinking FRANK at 52 Teas has to come up with something here…lol…


Okay folks…here’s what I sent to FRANK…Chime in with other flavored Croissants! LOL


I think we might be on to something…Can you view the comments in this post of mine!? I’m thinking – and I think others might be interested – in a Croissant type tea…what do you think!? Perhaps a chocolate or strawberry cream cheese or raspberry??? I’m going to post this within the comments and see who else chimes in…


Ooh a buttery, chocolate croissant! My absolute favorite, I think that would make a good flavored black tea! Yummmmo!


Ohhhh wow that would be a great idea
great tea to go with let’s say A CROISSANT!
Yeah I do that sometimes, chocolate tea with chocolate, maple tea with maple syrup pancakes, ya I’m a freak I know
if 52 teas does this, I would be ecstatic :)


At the very least, I would love a tea like Baked Bread. A Croissant would be even better! And beyond that, an Almond Croissant!


Almond Croissant!!!!!!
MMMM im having that craving again
Chocolate croissant would be neat too :)

I think this is my favorite blend of black tea: malty, sweet, smooth, and absolutely delicious. I bet this would pair exceptionally with some sort of pastry.

the smell of dry leaves have a peppery undertone, which becomes more evident when contrasted with Wendell’s China Keemun – which happened to be sitting side by side with MTB at the time.
