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
