|"A smooth, creamy texture with a sweet, malty aroma... the aroma of this tea is out of this world."|
Marco Polo is a blend of black and flavored teas from China. The Cultured Cup gives the following description on their website;
A variety of Chinese and Tibetan fruits and flowers are used to give this tea a highly sophisticated bouquet. One of the Cultured Cup's most popular teas.
This is a very nice tasting tea and quite unique. The leaves have a delightful roasted smell that is malty and slightly sweet. It is definitely the best smelling tea I have come across and even people who do not drink tea find it pleasant. This aroma carries through to the brewed cup as the sweet malty smell has a candy-esque quality. The aroma carries into the taste as a creamy sweetness. It has a smooth, creamy texture and the normal black tea bitterness is subdued. There is a consistency and taste that is reminiscent of a hot chocolate. A subtle and delicious aftertaste lingers. To date, this is the best tea I have had.
