I am a fan of tea lately, moving away from the mudd. I like the article on tea and would love to take a tour de Tea in Paris. Inspiring!

Samantha’s comment on the sweet little L’Oisivethe in the 13 is terrific. And yes, part of the joy of tea in Paris is that there are many friendly, even funky places to shop for or to enjoy good tea with friends and family as well as the numerous shops and salons of venerable importers and tea-blenders. I’ll write about more in an upcoming piece for hipparis.

There’s a fantastic little teahouse in the 13th that deserves a mention as well – and it’s a lot more family-friendly than the ones mentioned in this article. It’s called L’Oisivethé and is run by a fellow American. There’s a wide variety of teas to try and/or purchase, a menu with a great mix of French and American specialties, and even a yarn corner for the knitters out there!

This comes to no surprise to me! Whatever comes from Paris is generally perfection!
