Tasting Notes

The dry leaf smells of apples, sweet plums, pear, and a hint or fruit orchard flowers.

I brewed this at 200 °F for 4 minutes. Once steeped, the tea tastes very strongly of fresh green apples, with a bit of pear and finishes with a floral bitterness.


This tea is the most popular from Nina’s Paris because of its unique story. The original Marie-Antoinette tea is made of apples and roses hand-picked from the Le Potager du Roi of Versailles (King’s Kitchen Garden).

Tasting Notes

This tea smells tropical, light, and sweet. I brewed this to share with a friend and we really enjoyed it. The green tea was not too over-powered by the flavors, but it was subtle enough to be a good “intro tea” for people just starting with tea. It would do well with a little bit of sweetener or iced.

About 

NINA’S Paris is best known for their high quality tea and has a long and illustrious history providing fragrances and other luxury items to the court of France, starting in 1672 when Pierre Diaz created “La Distillerie Frères”, the first company to distill lavender essential oils in France and the supplier of fragrances for King Louis XIV and the Court of Versailles (later enjoyed by Marie-Antoinette).

NINA’S was named after Nina Diaz, who created a recipe for a cake that was offered to Marie-Antoinette called NINASETTE in 1778. The women of the family Diaz inherited this antique recipe over the centuries.
