Learn More About Mariage Frères

Mariage Frères.  The name is synonymous with luxury.  In the French tradition, Mariage Frères has elevated tea to an art: the art of French tea.

It all began in the second half of the seventeenth century, when brothers Nicolas and Pierre Mariage voyaged to distant lands on behalf of French King Louis XIV in search of exotic goods.  Visiting Madagascar, Persia and India, they settled on the sublime teas they found there.  Generations later, the Mariage family continued in the tea trade and in 1854, the Mariage brothers Edouard and Henri founded the Mariage Frères Tea Company and opened their first wholesale tea shop in Paris. The Mariage tea merchants imported the finest quality leaf teas from the Orient and built their business supplying the world's most exclusive teas to grand hotels and tea shops throughout France.

Sourcing the finest harvests from all four corners of the earth, Mariage Frères has developed the gourmet approach to tea, now known as "French tea".  

Direct from the Mariage Frères Tea Company in Paris, we are honored to offer a selection of some of the finest teas available anywhere.  If you've experienced the teas of Mariage Frères, you no doubt understand the passion and reverence that tea aficionados have for these exquisite teas.
