Blue tea™ scented with jasmine flowers
For the first time, Mariage Frères has blended a grand China blue tea with jasmine flowers in one peerless composition.
The gleaming leaves, greenish turquoise, are handcrafted into pearls and scattered with jasmine petals.
An eloquent nose fragrant with floral and fruity aromas of young peach.
The liquor, limpid and golden, is marked by a satin texture bursting with the fragrance of young, freshly blooming jasmine, highlighting the smooth and sparkling cup, vividly mingling with fruitier notes of apricot kernel and fig followed by a hint of vanilla lovingly expressed by the blue tea. Voluminous and impressive this surprising union is simply exceptional.
Jasmine tea by Mariage Frères
Our jasmine tea is scented according to a time-honoured tradition.
Plucked at dawn, thousands of delicate jasmine flowers are layered into the tea leaves and buds.
The dry tea thus absorbs all of the heady, natural fragrance from the fresh flowers.
This melding is repeated several times so the essence suffuses the heart of the tea.
Between perfuming, the tea is dried again so that new, freshly plucked flowers may impart more aroma.
After giving up all their delicious jasmine scent to the tea, the dried flowers are then carefully collected by hand, one by one.
The all-natural jasmine tea is finally ready to be enjoyed.
