drank Marco Polo by Mariage Frères
2274 tasting notes

I was especially eager for Sandy to try this one when she got back from new Zealand. I was introduced to it by the lovely and generous JacquelineM (who will be getting a box from me soon! I promise! I am packing it today!) and thought it was heavenly. Even hubby likes it, and that is saying something! Milk and sugar turn it into a bowl of strawberries and cream, with just a hint of vanilla.

I was not disappointed in her reaction. Sandy liked it as well as I did, and I am glad because she is the one who taught me the joys of loose leaf and the necessity of having more tea in the house than kinds of food!

Today I had to say good-bye again to my tea buddy as she prepares for six months in Australia. But we will be sipping tea together via Skype! God bless technology!

I am a music teacher, tutor, and former homeschool mom (25 years!) who started drinking loose leaf tea about eight years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens and oolongs.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.

I am also reviewing for Sororitea Sisters now!

My avatar is a mole in a teacup! Long story…
