Description - Mariage Freres French Tea by Alain Stella

In this refined volume, Mariage Freres, importers of tea into France since 1854, offer their definitive version of the art of tea, making this essential reading for all those who are unable resist the temptation of a fragrant cup of tea accompanied by a flaky pastry. When Richard Bueno and Kitti Cha Sangmanee bought the well-respected Parisian firm in the early eighties, they expanded the business and gave it a radically new dimension by inventing the French art of tea. To do so they sought out the best tea buds from all four corners of the globe and introduced their clientele to many new exotic tastes including green teas from Japan, white teas from China, and First Flush Darjeelings. Mariage Freres recognize though that tea is about more than just a satisfying drink - it is an important cultural ritual, associated as much with cakes and pastries as with the drink itself. Therefore, not only does this book create ever-new ways of enjoying camellia sinensis, but it also gives the opportunity for Mariage Freres to share some of their secrets of success with mouth-watering recipes. The combination of atmospheric photographs and informative text create a chic and totally irresistible invitation to tea.
