Guimet's tea is a refined blend of green tea with fresh and floral fragrances, evoking delicate citrus fruit and cherry blossom. Imbued with the spirit of Japan, the recipe also contains a scattering of cornflower petals.
Conceived in 2012 by Palais des thés for the Musée Guimet to mark France's most important exhibition ever devoted to tea, Le Thé Guimet is an exceptional creation and is now available as a permanent product.
The idea behind the tea was to devise a recipe in homage to Emile Guimet, founder of the eponymous museum. The cornflower petals are a reference to "Guimet blue", also known as "artificial ultramarine", which was invented by Jean-Baptiste Guimet, Emile's father. The citrus and cherry blossom symbolise the period in Japan when Emile Guimet began acquiring the objects that would later form one of the best-known collections in France dedicated to Asian cultures.
