From Mariage Frères

Green tea – Jardin Premier*
spices, almond & flowers

At the end of summer one finds the most beautiful moon of the year, shining in the sky. This is when it is considered to be closest to the earth while its beneficent radiance symbolises unity, family and prosperity.
To celebrate this magical holiday, Mariage Frères has created Full Moon Party, a green tea with fragrant spices and almond, softened by a flowery hint of rose.

On the elegant black bottle is a silver moon and a rabbit that evokes a wonderful Asian legend.

In the cup, the round and seductive notes are a reminder of the gourmet flavours of full moon cakes.

Mariage Frères Advent Calendar 2022 – Day 13

I’ve never tried the original black tea version but, after this, I want to. I’m pleasantly surprised how well the almond and mild spice levels take to a green tea base. The addition of nutmeg, cinnamon, and clove provides a satisfying level of heat to the bright pastry-almond finish.

The green tea itself is not intrusive; I think I can pick out some sweet grass notes but the tea blends so seamlessly with fruity, nutty, spicy, floral and buttery ingredients. There’s so much going on here that it’s hard to discern what may be from the tea’s natural notes and what is due flavouring.

The ingredients also list rose, but I mostly pick up on a vague fruity-floral red note; when it combines with the almond and butter notes, the impression is not unlike marzipan, sweet yam, or even a red bean paste. It’s a fancy pastry tea that I want more of – In part because I want to see what green tea MF used. Looking at the price per tin though.. maybe I’ll check out Pleine Lune first!
