RARE MILKY BLUE TEA | Blue tea, Formosa - Nantou.
At the heart of the island of Taiwan was born Rare Milky Blue Tea®, in the region of Nantou, celebrated for its endless fertile plains and unreachable summits. Mariage Frères has distilled all the magic of the terroir of Tung Ting Mountain to create a unique and mysterious Blue Tea™ with a milky aroma, naturally drawn out from the essence of the leaf.
Dried leaves : Like a beautiful jade-pearl necklace the leaves are carefully rolled out and heated, eliciting an exquisite note of biscuit followed by a hint of chypre – reminiscent of a forest stroll in budding spring – accompanied by a reassuring fragrance of candied tamarind.
Infused leaves : The infused leaves open with a frank floral aroma recalling fresh redwood resin, then an airy note of precious rice, harmoniously blanketed with milky vapors.
Liquor : The ripe apricot-coloured robe is full of tender fragrances – an overture to a creamy and dense cup – bursting with stewed fruits on a backdrop of white almond cream.
