Mariage Freres Tea

Jeffery Dec 6, 2004 04:46 PM

I'm a huge fan of Mariage Freres Teas, which I used to find at Dean & DeLuca in Soho. They can no longer get them - or so they say - and I only find them when I return to San Francisco to see family. Does anyone know where to find them in Manhattan or Brooklyn?
If you don't know this tea, it's amazingly aromatic and very tastey (my favorites: Marco Polo, Ruschka, Eros, Buddha Bleu) and have the most beautiful packaging which makes them great for gift giving.
Thanks so much, I love this service!

    Williams Sonoma stores carry at least a few varieties of Mariage Freres in tins.

        I think they closed that store, along with the 14th street store. But I know Balduccis on 14th St. carried the teas when they were still open.

        they carry it at the Garden of Eden in Brooklyn Heights (after a short hiatus), and i would imagine at their other locations.

        also available at Bergdorf's, top floor...

          try online at http://www.sloanhall.com - they seem to be low on stock right now, but usually they have a great selection.

              This is a super old thread, but since its been bumped I'll point out that Dean and Deluca in Soho stocks Mariage Freres tea again(at least last time I checked a couple months ago). I love the Mariage Freres earl grey and periodically stock up there--was concerned when I saw this post, until I checked the date!
