New Mariage Frères tea flavors
Spring is just around the corner and so are the new Mariage Frères tea flavors! I went to one of their beautiful stores in Paris to get a pre-taste of their new Easter flavors and I promise you they are good! Discover them with me here…
The new Mariage Frères tea “Sakura” is a composition of organic green tea with a divine fragrance of Japanese cherry flowers. Inspired by the Japanese tradition of celebrating Spring and the cherry blossom. A celebration of nature and the appreciation of the short time the trees are in bloom. The result is a nice soft tea made of fine green leaves.
Preparation: put 3 grams of the tea in 20 cl 85 degrees water. Let it infuse for 4 minutes.
To stay in the theme Mariage Frères have created a delicious green cake to fit the tea.
A reminder of the beautiful Japanese gardens and the pink flowers from the cherry trees (made in a delicious white chocolate). A perfect combination with the Sakura tea.
Despite its candy look, the cake is neither too sweet nor heavy. The taste of cherry, almond and green Matcha tea constitute a perfect harmony. Very fresh and soft.
For Easter you can also try 3 new gourmet flavors with a main fragrance of créme brûlée:
A black tea with a round and intense taste, notes of créme brûlée, vanilla, and citrus fruits that brings an irresistible patissier flavor to the cup. Preparation: 2,5 g in 20 cl 95 degrees water – Infusion 5 minutes.
A green tea which is a bit lighter. Preparation: 3 g in 20 cl 85 degrees water – Infusion 4 minutes.
Together with the Easter tea you can enjoy an Easter egg cake – caramelized with chocolate and Easter tea toffee. Suuuuuper delicious.
You can enjoy these unique flavors from 3th to 23th of April 2017 in the Mariage Frères tea stores in Paris.
