6 Tasting Notes
I would have never guessed that I could enjoy fruit flavoured black tea.
I will enjoy finishing this sample from the “Afternoon Teas” set which doesn’t hold true for most of the other teas it contains. Yet I would probably not buy a whole tin of it but rather take this as an inspiration to search for my ultimate fruit flavoured black tea (Mariage Frères’ MARCO POLO is high in the game).
It’s good to have this in the house for my friends from New Zealand, it’s what they call a good cup of tea (reminds them of home and visits to the UK I guess) and I agree – sort of. It feels like camping: simple, but good.
Why bother with the fancy stuff if all you want is a taste of home! I am glad I found this at the asian shop. My Rating is not higher because I am not rating the nostalgic feeling this may trigger, and it’s not lower because it’s just comforting to have this tea from time to time, who knows why!
Berlin Café MELT CARAMEL: i was told about a Café that serves mariage frères and when i went i realized they only had one tea: the Marco Polo.
As i usually never drink flavored tea i was very sceptical but gave it a try. It is wonderful. There is something salty in there that goes great with the sweetness. I like the boldness of only offering one black tea and appreciate the excellent choice.
