Tea

Maurice and I are back from our trip to the States suffering from jet lag. Here is a posting I prepared before we left.

I’m always surprised to see new Tea shops. This one has been around for a long time but I guess it is new to Paris.

Never heard of it.

This shop location was at Bercy. There’s another one in Palais Royal. I really liked the ambiance as you entered.

Each of these containers contained loose tea. Very stylish.

Pretty tea pots for sale.

These two were in the window. I never use pots myself, but brew tea in my mug. Less to clean up that way and I don’t like tea after it has set a while.

  1. I am first and foremost a coffee hound – love me a cup o’joe. BUT I can truthfully say that some of the best tea I’ve ever had was in Paris.

    I love your glimpses into daily life, and the places you highlight bring a smile. thanks!

  2. I’m not a great tea drinker, but I do love pretty teapots, although I’d have absolutely no idea what to do with them. I love those canisters with the leather belt- gorgeous.

  3. Great find. There’s something so refined about tea shops, don’t you think? That will probably be the next big thing since coffee shops have erupted everywhere here. I wish there was a way to keep the tea hot longer. I don’t think a tea cosy works well enough.
