For centuries, Buddhists in the Land of Free Men have perpetuated the custom of making special offerings of flowers, fruit and tea to monks. From this green tea, sprinkled with blue cornflowers, there rises a blend of fragrances recalling the ripe fruit on a tray laden with offerings. A tea steeped in spirituality.
Since 1854, Mariage Frères has been sourcing and blending the worlds' finest teas. And their history goes back even further, to the 1600s in fact, when their ancestors began sailing to distant lands in search of new and exotic flavors. For 150 years, their teas have been brewed at the worlds' finest restaurants, hotels and teahouses.

I fell in love with this tea! A lovely fragrance and wonderful taste. The blue cornflowers and fruit flavor are sublime. I think this is my new favorite.

Lovely, light fragrance. Has such a nice character for a green tea. A pleasure!
