The 5 Best Afternoon Teas in Paris

You’ve heard all the hype about Paris and its coffee, but did you know that the city is also a hub for high quality teas from around the world? These gourmet tea brands can be ordered in many cafes, or bought from the shop to take home to friends. So put down that café crème and try one of these deliciously flavorful teas.

Mariage Frères

This gourmet tea company, founded in 1854, prides itself on coming up with new and original creations. Its chocolate tea was amongst the first in the world, produced back in 1860, and it has since introduced tea jellies, tea-scented candles and tea-flavored pastries to fans across the globe. Mariage Frères teas can be bought in their Paris store, and can also be ordered from many cafes around the city.

And with Kusmi’s unique combinations of flowers, spices and herbs – and names like Prince Wladimir, Anastasia or the Saint Petersburg – you’ll be transported to Russia’s finest teahouses with every sip.
