Mariage Frères Tigre Tea

£26 100g

Luxury French tea brand Mariage Frères has added a new blend to its Thé Des Signes® Chinese zodiac collection, Tigre, to welcome the Year of the Tiger. Regal and courageous, dynamic and loyal, the sign of the tiger brings warmth and positive energy to those around him. As such, the Tigre blend is a bold composition of black tea sprinkled with golden tips with a magical aroma of cedar, pine needle balm and hint of sunny bergamot. Tibetan goji berries – the signature ingredient of the Thé Des Signes® range – add a full and energising fruity note to the composition that’s rich in antioxidants.  

Drawing inspiration from the layered pagoda towers that can be seen throughout historic East Asia, the tea is presented in a deep fuchsia tin that features a list of not only the previous Years of the Tiger, but the Years of the Tiger to come – signifying beginning a new era with happiness.
