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.

Smooth and very robust at the same time. This is a great take on the traditional Earl Grey tea.

I loved the black tea version, but it was not available, so I tried this instead. More subtle, but still great flavor.
