I got this right around the time I got Mariage Frères’ Marco Polo and I really like this and really don’t like Marco Polo. That really took me by surprise since I love every other Mariage Frères tea I’ve had. However Marco Polo is just too floral for me. Paris, on the other hand, although reminiscent of Marco Polo, is just enough of everything. I’m really sensitive to bitter flavors and normally avoid bergamot but this isn’t bitter in the slightest. It’s just a lovely subtle mingling of fruit flavors that make this taste like a delicious black tea plus. I usually have it with honey and milk.
