After a testing start to the year, we’ve never felt more ready to welcome the summer and although we might not be dipping our toes in tropical waters just yet, luxury French tea emporium, Mariage Frères, have cooling down covered with its iced French Summer Tea collection. New to the collection is their Tokyo Summer®, blend, launching 21st June, a suiting nod to the Summer Olympics that will be taking place in Japan.
The breath-taking summer collection features 20 blends, with each encased in a beautiful, apothecary-style hand-blown glass bottle with a stunning label detailing the tea’s distinct tasting notes. Every variety is specifically blended for the brand, from green and black to red rooibos, reflecting Mariage Frères’ commitment to quality and attention to detail.
Created to be enjoyed over ice, must-try blends include the new Tokyo Summer®, a green tea with yuzu, natural notes of both lemon and watermelon for the ultimate summer refresher; and the Cactus Bleu®, a dazzling sapphire tea featuring a unique composition of blue tea enriched with real pieces of cactus, known for being high in antioxidants, minerals and fibre. Other fresh flavours include Rio Summer®, which comes as either a red rooibos or green tea, blended with mint, rich Yerba Mate tea and acai berries.
Providing enough tea to keep you refreshed throughout the summer, each bottle contains 160g of loose-leaf tea, to yield up to 24 litres once steeped, and comes with Mariage Frères’ clever Filter-Envelopes™ to simplify the cold brewing process at home.
What’s more, you can relax over a freshly brewed iced tea at the Mariage Frères Salon de Thé in Covent Garden, whilst enjoying an exquisite French lunch or elegant afternoon tea, alongside a range of iced tea cocktails, mixed and muddled to order.
The full Summer Tea Collection is available to purchase in-store, at Mariage Frères Selfridges confession on Oxford Street, or online for nationwide delivery at www.mariagefreres.com.
