This was the last of the three samples provided by Mariage Frères for my blog project, and it has been so much fun to try these out!

My favorite part of this tea was definitely its aroma: a wonderful combination of fresh-smelling lavender and citrus. It translated into the cup beautifully, with those two notes continuing to dominate. It was a little more difficult for me to pick out the flavor of the black tea base, but while that kept it from tasting like a true Earl Grey it did make for a tasty flavored black… especially when I added a dash of milk!

Feel free to browse my cupboard if you’re interested in swapping, but all the mate and pu-erh in our household is my husband’s.

For swapping purposes, please note the apple allergy. Thank you!

I tried to limit my cupboard to teas that were 1oz or larger, but that was a gorgeous failure in terms of swap communication. It’s all going back up.

Okay, I just feel wrong trying to grade things without a rubric – it’s too inconsistent! So, here is the grading breakdown:

0-50: Dump it!
50-60: I might finish the cup
60-70: Possibly finish the pot
70-80: I may keep this on hand
80-90: Cupboard space guaranteed
90-100: Poetry may be involved!
