Saint-Valentin Tea!

 Happy Hearts Day!

Since it's Valentine's Day...
I'm drinking Mariage Freres Saint-Valentin tea today,
teacup & saucer.  

Would you care to join me?
I wish you could!

 Saint-Valentin Tea

This is the first time that I am trying Saint-Valentin tea.  
I stocked up on French teas at Mariage Freres last year 
on my trip to Paris.
I've been saving this special tea blend for today.

Mariage Freres describes their Valentin tea as:
"A romantic tea in which bergamont encounters mallow.
Exquisite flavour!"

#937 Saint-Valentin Tea

The Saint-Valentin tea has a lovely 
floral bouquet 
and makes a special cup for Saint-Valentin's Day!

If you're ever in Paris,
I highly recommend treating yourself to 
the wonderful teas at Mariage Freres,
which by the way,
there are over 500 teas to choose from!

You probably know that Mariage Freres has over 500 teas. I rely on their book The French Art of Tea to make my tea shopping list before I go to Paris. It's a lovely little book...check it out the next time you are there. ;)
