Maison Bourgeon, the creator of gourmand teas as they call themselves, was selling their products in Marseilles last weekend. Could I have passed by without stopping?
A small truck with plenty of teas in colorful tea caddies attracted many passers-by to stop and glance. My head was spinning from the scents of all these teas and it wasn’t easy to pick one.
“Été en provence” is a black tea blend scented with figs, strawberries, lavender, blueberries and marigold. Thus, the name of the blend: “Summer in Provence”. And since lavender grows just up North of Marseilles in Provence region, this blend was certainly talking to me.
I’m sure that Maison Bourgeon is just one of many tea shops out there, yet I haven’t seen so many different scented teas and infusions for sale. If you are around, do check their website or visit their shop: http://www.lesthesbourgeon.com/
