Advent Day 15

I am quite behind of my MF advent blends. I ended up giving this to my boyfriend after having a few sips and he quite enjoyed it. I’m just…kind of done with this same flavor profile over and over.

Mariage Frères Advent 2021 – Day 15

It’s been a while, but this seems identical to regular Marco Polo? Maybe it’s smoother than I remember… Also getting some caramel-esque notes, but I sometimes got that from original Marco Polo too.

Not complaining though! I enjoy this profile for the most part.

Advent Day 15

A black tea!!!! It’s been too long! I wonder what MF’s thing is with Marco Polo. How many versions do they have and at what point do they decide a new blend will be a MP and not given a unique name of it’s own? Just checked the website and it looks like seven. Seven different varieties of Marco Polo!
This is a nice cup, but I wouldn’t call it sublime. It has that deep strawberry scent and taste. The taste is very dark and heavy with the lighter notes of the berries peeking out. I can taste the berry in the sip, but there is a flash of alkaline in the start of the finish and it leaves my mouth slightly dry. It’s a nice enough tea, but I’ve never been super excited about Marco Polo, blue, sublime or regular.

I only knew about one Marco Polo!


I kinda wish there was only one. They have MP regular, sublime, white, green, rooibos and blue, if memory serves me correctly. SO many.


I no longer have a source for MF so if I ever place an order I will take a look at those.


I understand the existence of a green and rooibos one, but two black tea versions seems excessive

Adventaggedon Day 22 – Tea 5/6

I was a bit surprised to see the iconic Marco Polo again as this is the third iteration of it in the advent – I do love the profile though, so I wasn’t upset seeing it again. I’m trying to understand what separates this version from the OG – at least with the rooibos one that change was very obvious.

Without doing a side by side tasting of the OG against this version, it honestly just tastes like regular old Marco Polo to me. Delicious, don’t get me wrong, but the same standard rhubarb sweet and tart notes that are usually present. Oh well, another excuse to drink some Marco Polo is more than welcome!
