Paris Breakfast is wonderful, but Marco Polo is the bomb!!!
Paris Breakfast Tea is the reward for getting out of bed. A morning zen. Perfect companion for one’s thoughts, gazing out window at the day beginning or afternoon, enjoying with a pastry or jammed toast or a chocolate croissant. This tea is only meant to be used while enjoying a moment in life, do not attempt to work while enjoying this tea because the tea will command your attention to the moment until your cup is dry.
Not only is the flavor of this tea wonderful so is the aroma! When I open the tin to make a cup of tea I always enjoy a deep breathe of the aroma. All the MF teas are exceptional. Once you try them you'll never enjoy another brand. I have my daily 'tea' routine -- a cup of Paris Breakfast in the morning, then mid-morning a cup of Earl Gray French Blue (talk about aroma) and in the late afternoon a cup of Chandernagor , nice spicy aroma, simply the very best Chi tea.
The combination of the brioche/bread notes and the candied citrus notes in this one remind me of Panettone. One of my favourite MF teas for certain. I take it slightly sweetened but it's great even without. As with all MF teas, the leaves hold up well to a second steeping, and I make iced tea out of the second batch -- almost as delicious cold as it is hot. The citrus is the predominant flavour when chilled.
Lovely flavoured tea. "Breakfast" a bit of a misnomer. Enjoyable anytime - the sweetness makes it nice as a sweet treat in the afternoon as well, no biscuit necessary! I enjoy Paris Breakfast Tea plain or with a wee bit of sugar and milk (the latter when it is my breakfast tea). The keep fresh canister great too.
