La Route du Temps Tea by Mariage Frères
French Green Tea with Dried Citrus Peel & Ginger
Tea Type: Green
Flavor: Bright, crisp notes of citrus with spicy ginger aromas.
Drink this tea with: The spicy notes of ginger pair exceptionally with fish and seafood. Serve over ice alongside grilled shrimp skewers topped with plenty of fresh lemon.
Cooking with tea: Create a flavorful rub for fish by combining a couple tablespoons of tea with ½ teaspoon Tellicherry Peppercorns and ½ teaspoon fennel seeds in a spice grinder. Pulse into a medium-fine powder. In a small bowl, combine the tea and spice mixture with a teaspoon of sea salt and the zest of one lemon. Great on salmon, tuna and halibut.
Words from Mariage Frères tea house: "The Path of Time was created in memory of Richard Bueno to celebrate the10th anniversary of the Mariage Frères left-bank boutique, which he founded. A tea between two worlds, blending the flowery, honeyed taste of green teas from the Golden Triangle with the spicy note of pieces of ginger, which dot it like stones along a path."
