I seek out this tea wherever I can, and was delighted to finally find it in loose leaf 6 ox packages at Market Hall Foods. I would never use tea bags! I love the fragrance as well as the taste and it is well worth the price and effort to order it by mail from Market hall Foods. I live 6 hours from the Bay Area in a very small town.
I had read about this tea some years ago in the Chicago Tribune. It sounded good so I ordered it from Market Hall. I was not disappointed.
This tea was a 5, then went through a slump and 2 tea bags were needed (and it still wasn’t as good) and now it is better but not perfect. I think I prefer the Earl Grey French Blue which I have also buying from you for a long time. They are all pretty exceptional!
I love MF tea but I found this one to be too strong on the vanilla. Not my favorite.
Have loved this tea for years, black tea with notes of chocolate and vanilla. Market Hall is the only place in the Bay Area where you can get it in 6oz loose leaf bags. Thank you Market Hall!
