Tea from Mariage Frères at Cave Secrète

The purest expression of the French Art of Tea

This “Maison de Thé” is the most ancient in France, founded on June 1st, 1854 by the brothers Edouard and Henri Mariages, then traders in “tea, spices, and oriental goods”.

By then the family was already trading tea and spices for two centuries, since king Louis XIV in 1660 mandated Nicolas Mariage to travel to Persia and establish a tea trade for the royal court of Versailles.

Today Mariage Frères is one of the world’s most exclusive merchants in luxury teas.

Their “Haute Couture” of tea provides a unique experience, blending tradition and innovation, and representing the most refined qualities of the French art of living.

For Mariage Frères tea is like great wines, with vintage varieties, unique harvests, grand crus, terroirs, blends, and subtle, sophisticated teas for connoisseurs.
French Tea for Mariage Frères is: the quest for the finest and rarest teas, the skill of classical and flavoured blends, the art of making tea, tea and gastronomy, and the art of giving.

At Cave Secrète in Nürnberg

Located in the St Johannis district in Nuremberg, Cave Secrète since 2016 carefully selects and imports French and Italian wines and Champagne from independent winemakers.

Cave Secrète is also a gourmet food shop and the French tea of Mariage Frères.
