Before visiting the “Palais des Thés” boutique, we were aware that tea isn’t solely associated with small teabags… But an incredible assortment of over 200 loose teas (including an organic range too!) left us overwhelmed! This new shop is equipped to send you on a “Tea-discovery”.
Sip some tea for a warming welcome while you browse – a pure tea is served in the morning and a flavored one in the afternoon. Catch the scent of an array of teas displayed in small bowls. What’s more, the friendly staff will gladly introduce you to a few unusual varieties: Various “Grands Crus” from foreign tea plantations, vintage teas (Ever tasted a ’99 vintage tea?!), or fermented teas known as “Pu Erh”, is available in the form of thick flatbread, which has a very special earthy flavor.
There’s no fun in drinking tea without the right accessories! Find fancy cups, teapots and spoons “Made in Japan” or “Made in China” at the Palais des Thés.
