Bastille Day lands on 14th July and, with quarantine-free travel to the continent still a little way off, Francophiles can honour the day right here in London thanks to luxury French tea emporium, Mariage Frères.
The city of lights is usually lit up with fireworks for the fête nationale, and Mariage Frères’ special Paris Bastille Day ® tea evokes the festive spirit with bright citrusy notes of sparkling yuzu, accentuated with ginger. Sprinkled with bleu, blanc and rouge flowers to emulate the French flag, the tea’s indigo-colour infusion will transport you to the glitter banks of the Seine in no time.
Explore a range of other Paris-inspired blends, such as Paris Tea Time® White tea, or Midnight in Paris® red Rooibos blend at Mariage Frères’ expansive team emporium on Covent Garden’s King Street and in Selfridges, with all tins priced at £26.
Fancy celebrating with a taste of Paris? Indulge in the brand-new Parisian Afternoon Tea (£30pp) at the Covent Garden Salon de Thé, and enjoy French and English scones, Parisian style bao filled with portobello mushroom and beef tataki, and assorted tea-infused patisserie.
Bastille Day – celebrate from afar with Mariage Frères.
