Wedding Impérial (Mariage Frères)
3 min @ 212°
A special celebration black tea. A paean to love. This glamorous blend is steeped in the passion that weds the malty power of golden Assam tea leaves to the sweetness of notes of chocolate and caramel. Perfect clarity. Evidence of a peerless marriage.
I would probably have given this tea four stars if it were either less expensive or easier to get or- ideally- both. It is delicious- flavored without being the least bit sweet. It will not stand over steeping, however, it gets not too nice very quickly. I will probably use a tea ball next time and remove it promptly because properly steeped, this tea is lovely. It is not for everyday but as a special occasion tea, it is very tasty.
