A cross between traditional savoir faire and clever imagination, this blend of grand, flamboyant black teas gives a smooth, round texture and evolves over time. Held together by the tasty notes of malted chocolate, tender vanilla and warm brioche and adorned by a sweet fruitiness not unlike candied tangerine. A hint of China green tea unfurls at the end, freshening the palate. 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. 3 1/2" diam. x 4"H; 3.5 oz. Made in France.
