From Palais des Thes

Le thé Hokusai est une création exclusive Palais des Thés, conçue en édition limitée à l’occasion de l’exposition « HOKUSAI » au Grand Palais.

Inspirée par l’œuvre de l’artiste japonais Hokusai, cette délicieuse création parfumée associe avec élégance un thé vert sencha frais et délicat avec des fleurs, des agrumes et une pointe de gingembre. Exprimant la force et le raffinement, il est proposé dans une boîte qui contient 100g de thé, protégée par un bel étui, le tout orné du célèbre motif de la vague.

Here’s a sample of tea offered by my mother. She went to see the " HOKUSAI " exhibition at the Grand Palais and Le Palais des Thés ,for this occasion, created an exclusive tea sold at the Grand Palais (and also on their website) .

Green teas and I is not the best pair but I like to drink some of them time to time especially in the evening . Last night the time had come to test this Hokusai.

The blend is really pretty and generous with all these pieces of citrus peel and these pretty little electric blue flowers .

I bought a small bohemian glass teapot at Nature & Découverte . Less than 20 € , perfect. I do prefer those from Mariage Frères but … I’ll wait to win the lottery :)

The good point is that you can see the infusion step by step even if I find the filter a little tight on this teapot .

The taste is delicate and refined . Citrus fruits are on the first line but the sencha base used for this tea remains perceptible.This is invigorating thanks to the addition of ginger here . A spicy ginger.

The liquor is a lovely pale yellow.

This tea is very successful and even if I won’t rush to buy a box of this tea, I drank it and could drink it again with great pleasure.

Beautiful!

This glass teapot might not be from Mariage Freres but I could not tell the difference from looking it – it´s just as beautiful as their usual teapots!

The difference is 230 € :) Of course this teapot is lovely but has less details and is maybe less refined vs the Mariage’s ones but anyway I can’t afford them unfortunately.
