Hey, I've heard of black, green and red tea, but 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 tightly rolled buds 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 flavored with berry and red fruit essences. The sweet, fruitiness finds perfect harmony with the delicate tannic notes of the tea.
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."
