As I continue to get over this Paris cold I am on the tea binge back at home I decided to share my favorite Paris teas. As a child I never liked tea or the idea of it. My Mom used to only have lipton tea in the house and if you have ever had it I don’t know if you would be a big tea drinker either.
Since moving to Paris in 2013, I started trying teas and it turns out I really like them. As I travel around Europe I started a tradition of picking up new teas wherever I go. I have a whole collection of them at home and use them for different reasons. A few I don’t think are available in the States but you can visit the shops in Paris.
Kusmi Tea is great! I have a few favorites from here. I love the grapefruit detox tea. For summer especially it is great over ice. But also refreshing hot too. They have a few shops in the US now and I know there is a Kusmi in the Plaza hotel in NYC. But you can buy them online as well.
Other Kusmi Favorites include: The Aquarosa Tea (perfect for Summer) Jasmine Green Tea, and the original detox.
Mariage Frères – There are several locations in Paris and I know in Chicago you can pick up Marriage Frères at Posh Chicago. They have a whole collection available.
Palais des Thés– There is one right in the Marais on Vieille De Temple but there are a total of 7 locations in Paris. I love the Vanilla Roobis with almond milk especially when I am sick. There is also a special one for my favorite hotel Grand Hôtel du Palais Royal but they only serve it at the hotel. I am waiting until they have it for sale.
Dammann Frères Tea– There is a shop right in Place de Vosges that I visit. I have a few flavors from them including the summer fruit infusion, Coquelicot, and the Jasmine. This is a tea heaven and they really help you find ones that you will like based on your palate.
I am off to NYC tomorrow for more of Paris Meets NYC. If you have been following along I did a whole list of NYC spots with a Paris vibe. Restaurants, Cafés, Bakeries and shops. I will be adding to the list tomorrow.
