drank Paris Tokyo by Mariage Frères
335 tasting notes

I got this as a free sample in my Mariage Freres tea purchase. It’s Darjeeling with a kiss of yuzu flavoring. This is my first Darjeeling I have have had that’s flavored. I drank this iced, since I prefer Darjeeling iced. It seems to bring out the muscatel more.

It’s medium level astringent. It brewed to be a deep white wine color. Yuzu is at a very delicate level. I have been brewing most the Mariage Freres teas at 2 minutes, rather than 4 minutes. I like keep the astringency at bay. They recommended 4 minutes for this tea, but I don’t think it would of done well.

I love cooking, sleeping, reading, reggae music, and tea. I also enjoying reading about tea, the culture and ceremonies, and the diverse types.

I think most the teas I drink are 80% iced, but on some days, it’s opposite that, especially days off! I can’t believe it took me this long to try different teas. Better now than never!

Reading the reviews help guide me to the right tea. I have been turned on to so many delightful brews.

I am ALWAYS up for swapping. Just PM me.
