Thé Bleu, Jardin Premier*
Mariage Frères expands its extraordinary collection of Blue Tea™. Honey Blue® is issued from a confidential garden and 100% organic. Nestled in the heart of a fertile reserve the tea plants thrive in a cold environment that slows the growth of the leaves, thereby promoting smaller, more qualitative harvests the likes of which resemble the work of an haute couture goldsmith. The youngest leaves are plucked by hand, one by one, at just the right time in order to respect nature’s rhythm. The leaves are then quickly transported to the atelier for a partial oxidisation before being hand-crafted into precious little pearls. Infused in spring water at 95 °C, this masterpiece unleashes myriad saveurs even after 5 successive infusions. Paradise isn’t so far away after all…
Jade and emerald, the leaves exhale fragrances of mallow and magnolia flower.
Precious opalescence. A resinous note of cedar marries with the gourmet elegance of plumeria and crystallised vanilla.
Precious gold. A bouquet of white orchid and immortelle blossom blends with liquorice. The umami texture is punctuated with notes of honey and ‘tatin-style’ rhubarb.
