Mathilde, a Ladurée Tea

The last time we visited some family in France, I got the chance to raid a Ladurée store. Now, if ever you are going to Paris, I highly recommend visiting one of their uniquely cute pastry shops. Mind you, they don’t have a huge selection of vegan treats, but the feel of the store is so luxurious and Parisian that it’s worth it on its on. Splashes of happy colours are arranged in a very tasteful and delicate way to create an atmosphere of calm and pleasure. So, I was admiring their cuteness when I spotted rows of colourful boxes: TEAS!

To my boyfriend’s dismay, I flew right in front of them and started smelling the most wonderfully scented teas: magnolia, jasmine, orange blossom, cinnamon, strawberry, raspberry: there is something for everyone! I think I was very reasonable and selected two teas: the house blend and the Mathilde.

Le thé Mathilde, so fresh and delicious!

 

The Mathilde has probably become my favourite tea of all times. A mix of Chinese green and black teas with a generous side of orange blossom. That’s it.

I love how simple the scent of this tea is: it really allows the different aromas from the green tea and black tea to shine through while leaving you with the feeling of having walked in the most magical orange tree orchard. It’s sophisticated without being heavy, scented but not fake.

If ever you have the chance to visit Paris, or have someone you know going, you must try this tea out. It’s perfect for every occasion, so tasty and tasteful, and so delicious!
