drank Marco Polo by Mariage Frères
2009 tasting notes

Since I had a full enough schedule that I had to set the alarm on a Saturday (bleh), I figured I’d at least psych myself for the day with a really good cuppa. Now that I’ve learned the lighter-is-better technique on this one, it’s absolute fruity perfection.

And even better—the half pot I left till this afternoon ices down wonderfully. Doesn’t lose a bit of flavor cold. Makes me crave strawberry sorbet. Perfect for a warm and pleasant spring day.

Somebody asked me once when I became a tea junkie; I think it dates back to college when I needed caffeine for a 7 a.m. class but chose not to do coffee. My favorite teapot is a medium-sized Brown Betty given to me by my Mema; the painted flowers are chipping off, but the size and feel is perfect. I rejoice when I get a morning to brew a pot of loose tea starting with a kettle; not a bag and a hot pot.
