Organic Blue Tea with Cornflowers & Goji Berries – Year of the Loving Rat Tea by Mariage Frères
2020 limited edition Année du Rat Affectueux Thé
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: Studded with cornflowers and dried goji berries, Mariage Frères' Year of the Loving Rat Tea is vibrant and fresh with delicate floral aromas and notes of red berry.
Drink this tea with: Sip while enjoying a few Antonio Mattei almond biscotti (Biscotti di Prado).
Cooking with tea: Turn into a fragrant tea and fruit sorbet by using tea in lieu of water in your favorite fruit sorbet recipe.
Words from Mariage Frères: "MARIAGE FRÈRES has blended an all-new blue tea whose delicate and flowery aroma is accentuated with lively notes of citrus. The colour of the infusion shimmers with shades of blue. Goji berry, the signature of the collection THÉ DES SIGNES, imparts pleasantly sour tones to this dynamic composition.
A delicate, gourmet cup for a year rich of charm and creativity."
