Why does it deserve our mention? Because of its delicate fruity, floral scent.  The Chinese and Tibetan essences in this ancient formula that has been a huge success for Mariage Frères are a fascinating discovery. We are talking about a company that has become emblematic and has been an inspiration for so many who have opened tea stores all over the world.  Although it looks more like an old pharmacy, once inside Mariage Frères you are submerged in a magic world where you can choose among more than 500 different teas, offered loose or already packaged in tea bags.  The current president of the company, Kitti Cha Sangmanee, is the same person who arrived very young in Paris from Thailand, his native country, and who proposed what has become the most successful line in the company, the line of teas flavored by the most exotic flowers and spices in the world, to Marta, the granddaughter of Henri Mariage. Marco Polo is a brilliant combination of flavored teas that are ideal to follow a good meal. Mariage Frères has been in the tea business since 1854 but didn’t begin selling to the public until 1980.  Speaking of Mariage Frères means speaking of one of the best tea stores in the world.
