Palais des Thes Pays Tribute to the Louvre Museum
Paris, France-based tea company Palais des Thes has formulated two new blends inspired by the Louvre Museum to honor of its art, history, architecture and garden.
The Louvre’s blend of Renaissance and modern architecture combined with the romantic beauty of the Tuileries Garden provided inspiration for the two new blends: Thé du Louvre Courtyard Tea and Thé du Louvre Garden Tea. These novel blends that combine black or green tea with French fruits represent both tradition and originality.
- Thé du Louvre Courtyard Tea is a mélange of bold black tea that stands for France’s history, with added notes of citrus and blackberry that add an elegant finish to the taste.
- Thé du Louvre Garden Tea is a mélange of green tea with notes of apple, plum and quince, intended to evoke the feeling of strolling through the Tuileries Garden.
The release of the teas coincides with the 30th anniversary of Pei’s pyramid—an icon on the Louvre’s grounds—and are available on palaisdesthes.com.
