From Mariage Frères

The mere mention of Christmas Pudding and one can’t help but think of the delicacies of Victorian England. And here’s what Mariage Frères has dished out, Channelling the holiday spirit to propose a tea for an extraordinary Noël. Warm notes of cinnamon, nutmeg and brown sugar harmonise with raisins, candied orange and cherry, crushed almond, apple morsels and vanilla. Happy Christmas!

Metallic canister with double lid holding 90 g of flavoured black tea.

My daughter, Superanna, is really amazing about supporting my tea habit. She brought this tea with her for Thanksgiving yesterday.

The packaging is gorgeous. The tin is a really nice double lidded one that will definitely be getting reused when the tea is gone.

The aroma of the tea is really great upon opening, and the main thing I smell is fresh orange, like the spray of orange juice in your face when you are peeling a fresh orange.

I was surprised that sugar is listed as one of the ingredients in this tea. I don’t think I have ever seen that in a Mariage Freres before. But there must not be a lot of it there. I think it would have really leapt out at me since I don’t add sugar to my tea.

The tea has that fresh orange taste and there is a hint of the hazelnut as well as the bevy of other flavors which I have found to be very done by French tea blenders in the past. Just as with perfume, they know how to mix lots of flavors and end up with layers instead of a mishmash.

My daughter was surprised at how much she liked it. She really doesn’t care for black tea, mostly white and green, but she loved the smell of this and said that the base didn’t taste like a black tea to her. It was a nice, mild base rather than one of the astringent ones that I particularly find in a lot of French teas.

Very nice indeed and very Christmas-y.

I’m in the process of sipping this tea down this week as its just over 12 months old now…Its still got plenty of flavor left in in and still very much reminds me of a Christmas pudding!! Still plenty of cinnamon, nutmeg, raisin, candied orange, cherry, almond. apple and vanilla notes…. Yum! Like Christmas in a cup!!
