I first had Mem tea at the Arcade bakery in Manhattan. As I took my first sip of an Earl Grey tea, I was blown away by how aromatic it was. It is not like I drink Lipton; I have been getting my tea from Mariage Frères for years now. So, that should say something.
While we were in the Cambridge area for the day, I encouraged my lazy husband to go for a half an hour walk to the Mem shop so we can buy some of their tea. They had a great assortment and so far what we tried has been pretty good.
