Where the splendour of 17th century France gone? Its « Gourmet Heritage » involved a profusion of flavours, of inventive ingredients and dishes presented in overflowing vessels of silver and gold – not to mention exotic teas that had recently arrived from mysterious, far-off places.
Today this heritage can be found again in a majestically shaped canister draped in ultra-violet paper decorated with a silver escutcheon.
The festive, fruity black tea is enlivened with a hint of citrus and spices highlighted with mauve and Royal blue cornflowers.
