A new green tea to love: Thé du Louvre from Palais des Thés

Paris has been on lots of minds around the world recently following that horrible fire at Notre Dame on April 15, and now everyone is hopeful that one of the world's great historic sites will be restored in a timely manner. This week, I'm thinking of another Paris landmark since Palais des Thés was kind enough to send me a sample of their new Thé du Louvre Garden Tea to sample.

I'm mesmerized by the design on the pretty tin.

When I opened it, I thought, "Cool! A plastic liner to keep the tea from spilling out." Oh, how many times I've lost a few ounces of tea during an overly enthusiastic tin opening.

And see that tab on the right? It means that I will never accidentally spill this tea upon first opening it, and I think this new packaging is simply brilliant.

Brilliant is also a good word to describe this gourmet green tea blend featuring notes of apple, plum, and quince, which Palais des Thés aims to make us recall "a stroll through the Tuileries Garden." This is one of two new blends that pay tribute to the Louvre (I'll also be trying the other one soon), and they're being released just as the museum celebrates the 30th anniversary of the Louvre Pyramid.

This is the tea I've been sipping all week in my new green teacup, and oh, is Thé du Louvre delicious! The scent and taste of the tea are so light and fruity that I find myself pausing just to inhale the steeped tea before I sip it—it's that good. Are you looking for a new green tea to try, one that evokes memories of Paris in springtime and that will get you drinking more green tea? Then I heartily recommend this one, and you can find it here.


  1. That does sound like a lovely green tea and the tin is very pretty. Although it is a little pricey, I could add it to my wish list. ;-)

  2. That plastic liner is genius. Glad the tea was good.

  3. The Palais des Thes have some very lovely blends. Glad you found some new ones in green to love. Great packaging too.

  4. That IS a really nice tin! I don't care for green tea myself, but I'm glad you found it so much to your liking.

  5. I'm not sure where my comments go when I post them from my phone! I did try to say something here yesterday. That tea sounds delicious and looks so pretty in your new green cup!
