Sur Le Nil — Citrus fruit from forgotten lands and refined spices wonderfully scent this fine green tea.
Vert Provence — The hinterland of Provence in southern France explodes with plants, flowers, and fruit that all boast heady scents. In order to recreate the magic of this land, Mariage Frères has taken a grand green tea with a slightly grassy scent, and blended it with fruits from Provence, dominated by ripe red and black berries, creating an intense bouquet supported by the warm aroma of mellow lavender and the sweetness of rose petals.
Earl Grey French Blue — Graceful and sophisticated, this classic blend reinvents itself by pairing the fruity, zesty and lightly peppery notes of refined bergamot with the sweet-scented hint of cornflower. Balanced and full of body with ample and lasting flavour, the liquor floods the palate with its charm and majesty.
Mariage Frères, which means “the Mariage brothers,” was founded in 1854 by brothers Henri and Edouard Mariage in Paris, France. They are credited with being the first to create the unique French blended teas, inspired by France's culinary and wine traditions. Like fine French perfume, each blend contains many ingredients that combine into something new and wonderful. As a result, sampling Mariage teas is an adventure of discovery. Today, Mariage retail tea shops are located throughout Paris (including the Louvre), in London and throughout Japan.
