For centuries, Buddhists have perpetuated the custom of making special offerings of flowers, fruit and tea to monks. Sprinkled with blue cornflowers, this green tea features a blend of fragrances recalling the ripe fruit on trays laden with such offerings. Mariage Frères, France’s oldest house of teas, was founded in 1854 in Paris as a tea and vanilla import firm that supplied prestigious hotels, salons and stores with distinctive teas from China, India and Ceylon. Since then, multi-generations of the family transformed the business into the world’s most exclusive merchant for luxury tea. 100g. Made in France.
