This year again, the choice is all yours as far as it applies to Epiphany Cakes. Mariage Frères has decided to treat us well again with two epiphany cakes for Epiphany 2022. They have created two cakes and obviously they both have a tea twist: the “Marco Polo Sublime” black tea Epiphany cake and the “Vert Provence” tea Epiphany cake.
Among the original Epiphany cakes we tasted, the “Marco Polo Sublime” cake is a fantastic natural black charcoal cake from Mariage Frères. An original cake because of the color and its taste as it is based on “Marco Polo Sublime” black tea frangipane, enhanced with blueberries and blackcurrant. A lovely golden bead perfect the decoration of this uncommon cake to enjoy with the “Happy Queen”, “King’s Tea” or “Marco Polo Sublime” teas.
The second cake is very original as well, because of its taste and look! It is based on “Vert Provence” tea frangipane flavored with red berries and lavender. We love the “Matcha” green tea hints delivering even more scrumptiousness. Emerald green sugar crystals enhance the puff pastry. This “Vert Provence” tea Epiphany cake is even better when paired with the “Happy Queen”, “King’s Tea” or “Vert Provence” teas.
Both cakes serve 6 to 8 foodies and cost €45 each. They are available from December 26, 2021 in all Paris tearooms and to pick up upon order by phoning +33(0)184.108.40.206.54 or at www.mariagefreres.com.
Last but not least, for the new year, Mariage Frères also releases a delicious tea to celebrate the year of the Tiger. In the Chinese “Thé des Signes” collection, get the “Tigre Royal”. A delicious black tea with goji berries, both woody and fruity (€26 the box of 100g).
