Mariage Freres, a French gourmet tea company based in Paris, was founded in 1854 by Henri and Edouard Mariage; the company has several tea house locations in Paris, but the one located in the Louvre shopping mall next to Printemps was the closest to the one-bedroom apartment we rented in St. Germain des Pres for 3 weeks.
(entrance to the tea house) - the company offers more than 500 teas as well as tea accessories and teapots
After buying tea for gifts, Doug and I decided to treat ourselves to an afternoon tea and dessert in the small, charming tea room.
The apple tart we shared was a delicious treat!
Even paying one's bill is tasteful!
