I really wanted to love this tea, specially since I paid a good amount for it. I hope it grows on me. It has a very sharp taste to it, almost cloyingly perfumed. I like floral teas usually but this just isn't doing it for me. It smells gorgeous, but I can't get behind that flavor.
I tried this over ice originally and could not believe how smooth is was. Typically, I add cream to my tea, but this over ice is truly wonderful. I encourage all my friends to try this tea, as it is amazing.
This tea is the best tasting and refreshing tea I think I have ever had. I am looking forward of trying more Mariage Frères.
Very good Tea, not the best Mariage Freres tea still a great tea. It has a clean, light taste that has many different flavors accenting the taste and smell.
