Description

Le Thé Guimet is a refined blend of green tea with fresh and floral fragrances, evoking delicate citrus fruit and cherry blossom. Imbued with the spirit of Japan, the recipe also contains a scattering of cornflower petals.

The idea behind the tea was to devise a recipe in homage to Emile Guimet, founder of the eponymous museum. The cornflower petals are a reference to "Guimet blue”, also known as "artificial ultramarine”, which was invented by Jean-Baptiste Guimet, Emile’s father.

The citrus and cherry blossom symbolise the period in Japan when Emile Guimet began acquiring the objects that would later form one of the best-known collections in France dedicated to Asian cultures.

I absolutely love Green of London, and Palais des thés is the only place I can find a green tea Earl Grey. I definitely recommand it.

Green of London is one of my favorite tea. I love earl grey but prefer green tea over black tea, so green of London is the perfect match for me.
