I do love tea. Whilst copious cuppas sound so quintessentially British, I have to admit to harbouring an adoration for the fresher fragrant French teas too. Amongst my most highly favoured purveyors of tea is Mariage Freres.
I am set on sampling each and everyone one of their teas and my latest purchase was a loose leaf tin of their delicious Vanile des Iles.
This is a delicate and exceptionally smooth vanilla even without milk (which is my preferred way to drink this). This is a perfect tea to accompany dessert and even a macaron or three.
Mariage Freres teas can be found in Mitsukoshi London for about £13.00 per tin.
