That Amazing Tea Blend from Laduree

Dear fellow Angelenos, I am hoping you can help me where Chowhounders on the France board were amazingly tongue-tied!; This past summer we enjoyed the lovely & aromatic tea at the Paris franchise, LADUREE. I remain bewitched & longing for the blend we ordered which had the garden aroma & scent of violet & rose petals in a a mildly sweet aromatic brew. It was poetry for the senses. It seems they do not yet ship to the U.S. from Laduree direct. I don't know whether they blend this tea themeselves or they get it from the also French (Tea) purveyer, "Mariage Frere", who does import SOME of their blends to the U.S reportedly through some Dean & DeLucas & William Sonomas. So,
I'm wondering where to obtain this particular blend, in person or by mail-order?, and what the name of this mystery blend was? All I have is the now dog-earred menu I brought back from Laduree. Three of the listed teas sound as if they might have been the one we ordered, but no descriptions are given. These three are "Laduree Melange", Jardin Bleau",
and the "Marie Antoinette". Does anyone have any leeds as to the name of the tea I described?, & where to obtain the real deal or some wonderful facsimile? Thaks! --JET
