This is a great tea – I like rooibos to begin with for its honey notes, but Mariage Freres has taken this base and masterfully deepened it to include vanilla and musk. Everyone I’ve served it to has commented on the flavor; it is warming and full-bodied with a long after-taste. It won’t give you a caffeine buzz but it will light up your taste buds!

Grandma introduced me to tea as a kid (lipton with milk and sugar; a bit poured into the saucer to cool it down and then sipped from there), and I’ve never looked back. Still have a slight preference for teas that go well with milk (or even better, cream) and sugar, but since Grandma’s day I’ve branched out to appreciate green and white teas, rooibos and pu erh. Absolutely love Mariage Freres!
