Another very Christmasy Mariage Freres gift idea is the Beautiful Tea for Beautiful People
In the meantime since I am in France right now and I m totally and utterly enjoying the pleasure of Tea taking, I suggest a stroll at the ultimate tea paradise: The Mariages Freres Tea House and museum
Originally located in the Marais, it is the oldest teashop in Paris— dating back to 1854 (in fact, it houses a tea museum).
The romantic shop still has a 19th century feel to it with the original wood plank floors, shelves stacked with large black canisters with the famous golden Mariage Fréres logo imprinted on them, and salesman dressed in stiff pure linen suits. The pungent scent is almost overwhelming and even the staunchest coffee lover may be convert to tea. With over 500 varieties of tea from almost every continent, it’s easy to see why the brand is so beloved.
Breakfast, lunch or tea, Mariages Freres is on our Little black book!
