Mariage Frères recently launched a new tea flavor that intrigued me: Full Moon Party tea. For the mad hatter in me, this sounded like just the perfect beverage for my next unbirthday party. Chéri and I took a stroll to the Marais and stopped in the Mariage Frères boutique and salon du thé on rue Bourg-Tibourg. I drank nearly a whole pot of the Full Moon Party tea.
It has a strong flavor of almond, infused with honey, vanilla and just a slight hint of the faintest rose. It also had a light golden color. It’s a slightly sensual tea with a bit of mystery. The Havana French Summer iced tea, which Chéri chose, was quite refreshing, with a sepia color that made it seem more like a pretty potion rather than an iced tea. It’s also loaded with antioxydants. Its flavors include hibiscus, sunflower, pomegranate and goji berries.
