Wedding Imperial

P1010410

Today’s tea is Wedding Imperial. It is a black flavored tea from Mariage Freres. Mariage Freres was established in 1854 in Paris, France.

The flavors are chocolate and caramel in Assam tea. Normally I don’t like flavored teas, and I should have known better, but this one smelled so good!

The leaves are twisted and flecked with gold, so this doesn’t appear to be cheap tea that’s then flavored, which is what you used to get when you got flavored tea (same goes for coffee). The chocolate and caramel scent is enticing, and is why I bought the tea.

It brews up a nice reddish-brown cup, but a warning: this tea turns bitter and undrinkable when it’s cold, so drink up while it’s hot. It is slightly sweet, the chocolate and caramel flavors are not over the top, and the Assam saves the day. The last time I tried it I didn’t like it, but it’s really not bad at all now. I don’t think I’d add it to my daily rotation group, but it’s nice, especially for the holidays. It would make a good afternoon tea.

I have nearly an entire kitchen cabinet full of tea, and I just keep acquiring more! I started this blog to go through them one by one, to be reminded why I bought them all in the first place, to learn, and to rekindle my love for tea.
