Mariage Freres, Aoyama



mariage freres aoyama



TOKYO | Paris’ Mariage Freres is one of our favourite tea shops in the world, and have been producing some of the finest teas around since 1854, when the House of Mariage would blend tea for King Louis XIV. Today, Mariage Freres have several stores in Japan, where customers can choose from over 500 types of tea from 35 countries. The Aoyama store doesn’t have a cafe and tea salon like the larger store in Ginza, but is still a fantastic shop where you can purchase the complete range of Mariage Freres teas to take home, along with tea equipment.

We like so many of the teas here that it’s hard to pick just a few, but if you want a few recommendations, there they are. One of our favourites is the Paris-Ginza, an elegant black tea with a creamy caramel sweetness and fresh aromas of red fruit, the Earl Grey French Blue, which adds sweet scented blue cornflower to the familiar bergamot of Earl Grey, American Breakfast, a rich, malty, black tea blend, and the Sakura White Tea, which combines Japanese cherry blossom with the light floral notes of white tea buds.

Make sure you check out the iced tea canisters too – the Havana, a green loose-leaf tea blended with hibiscus, sunflower, pomegranate and goji berries, is delightful.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
