Marriage Freres recommendations?

chowchownyc | Feb 2, 201907:31 AM     3

Hi, I am going to Paris next month and would love some personalized recommendations for Marriage Freres (I have read the general thread on what people like there but one persons awesome is another persons awful). My go to teas are listed below. Black, white, green, and herbal are all on my shelf, just not roobios. The only MF tea I have previously tried was Marco Polo and I found it overwhelming, cloying, and over flavored. I like teas flavored by flowers, fruits, etc vs oils. I used to love Harneys Paris tea until they changed the recipe and it became oily and cloying (they now sell the old recipe as Vieux Paris in 50 packs for anyone else that loved the old version). Any recommendations for what I might like at MF would be greatly appreciated. I plan to purchase a lot of small amounts to taste when I get home. Some of my favs:
Palais des Thes: arbor garden, blue of london, green tea with ginger and citrus, green tea with peach, montaigne blue, No 25 holiday teas (black, white, green)
David’s: cream earl grey
TWG: Napoleon Tea, Singapore breakfast tea, New York breakfast tea
Fortnum & Mason: Gountess Grey
Harney: dragon pearl jasmine, chinese flower

Thanks very much!
