Mariage Frères is a French gourmet tea company, based in Paris. As France's oldest tea merchant, Mariage Frères’ passion for tea has been governed by an aesthetic sense of refinement and a quest for perfection. Founded in 1854, members of the Mariage family were involved in the trade across Persia, the East Indies, and the Moghul Empire as far back at the 17th century. With its devotion to discovering and evolving the best way to unfold the elixir from every leaf it is down to the family’s legacy that the French ‘Art of Tea’ was born.
