drank Place Saint Marc by THE O DOR
362 tasting notes

I had tried this, or supposedly had tried this before, in a very tired, weak, limp sample, with not much taste. I know got an hermetically sealed bag directly from manufacturer and it is quite different from what I remember.

Honestly, I think this is Theodor´s take on Mariage Fréres Marco Polo. Marco Polo is a blend I have bought a few times throughout the years, sometimes it has been perfect, my most recent buy smells a bit too artifcial somehow. Place Saint Marc holds its weight, better than my more recent Marco Polo though not as good as my first tin of it. Black tea with some red fruits and some magic, vanilla and clearly other spices. I am always always going to have a place for this in my cupboard and my heart.

And a very lovely, not anodyne but just right base for the flavors. But I expected that from blender and they are ever reliable at it being good tea under the flavors.

Flavors: Red Fruits, Vanilla

Bio

Inconstant tea drinker – I mostly drink tea when not too hot. I hang around steepster much more frequently in (northern hemisphere) cold season. Experimenting with cold steeping, for summer.

- Teas -

I like all sorts of tea, flavoured and unflavoured, though I am picky.

I am one of those people who actually loves Lapsang Souchong. I am not crazy about Earl Grey, in general. I don´t quite get Darjeeling teas, but I am exploring.

I like rooibos, though not all bases. I loathe hibiscus. I do not like fennel/liquorice/anise in blends or teas with chicory. I am picky about what I consider true cinnamon.

As you can probably tell from my cupboard, the brands I find more interesting right now are Mariage Fréres and Thé-o-Dor.

I am always willing to try anything new. I am now particularly interested in single origins.
