From Mariage Frères

A blend of a Chinese black tea with natural apricot flavoring & marigold petals. Beautiful to look at and even better to drink.

This is not a sipdown, but I missed apricot day yesterday, unfortunately. I hadn’t read about it on the discussion board until yesterday, when I was done drinking caffeine for the day. Better late than never?

It’s a nice note to end my flavored black teas on for the day and I’m glad it won’t be a sipdown candidate for a while. I want to savor it.

I remain a staunch fan of French flavored black teas. Having just sipped down a German one, I have in my head a very clear picture of the difference between the French ones and all others (including those from the US). I am sure I’ve said this before, but the difference (to me, anyway) is that there is really no delineation between the base and the flavor in French blends. The flavor and the base are blended and inseparable.

Non-French blends, more often than not, have a discernible separation to my palate. The base is the base, the flavor is on top of the base.

It’s, as with everything, a personal preference, but I much prefer not being able to tell where the base ends and the flavor starts.

Between a month of Dammann Frères advent teas, and a few flavored blends from Marriage Frères and Theodor, I agree with your assessment. The French teas create a whole picture, one that celebrates both the tea and the flavor without separating the two. That, and at least with Dammann Frères, mouthfeel is taken highly into consideration.

I wonder what they do differently to achieve this effect?
