Young Oolong Tea with Blue Flowers

What is blue tea?

Blue tea is made from young oolong tea leaves that are lightly fermented. The flavor is somewhere between green and black tea—it's fragrant and crisp with a satisfying rounded depth that's perfect for any time of the day. As the tea steeps, the blue flowers unfurl and tea turns a deep navy hue.

Tea type: Blue tea (oolong)

Flavor: The blue tea version of Mariage Frères best selling flavor, this young oolong tea is smooth, fruity and floral. The sweet, fruitiness finds perfect harmony with the delicate tannic notes of the tea.

Drink this tea with: Enjoy a cup of Mariage Frères' Marco Polo Blue along with a couple apricot & raspberry pâtes de fruits from F. Doucet.

Cooking with tea: Make a lightly sweetened simple syrup with tea instead of water (we like a 3:1 tea to sugar ratio), freeze in ice cubes and then blend to make an icy tea slushy. You can also incorporate frozen fruit like blueberries for a fruity tea slushy.

Words from Mariage Frères: "The most legendary of blended compositions, MARIAGE FRÈRES’ iconic fragrance of sumptuous fruits and flowers from China and Tibet is reborn in Blue Tea™.

Its indigo-blue cup offers a smooth elixir of sensual and gourmet nuances."

This is magical tea. The color, the fragrance, the taste - it is truly a feast for the senses. Light and fruity, it is perfect for taking a tea break in the morning or afternoon. I bought a tin to give as a gift and decided to keep it for myself, because I'm a terrible friend. I will get them something else and everyone will be happy.
