The tea shop is absolutely incredible, with a colonial decoration and spirit.
I really enjoy being able to smell the teas from the huge containers before choosing and buying them. To enjoy that, it’s much better to come during the week, rather than on weekends, when the shop is always between quite full to completely packed.
I am already preparing with relish my shopping and to-be-smelled-before-choosing lists for my next trip to Paris.
The tearoom is also a very good place for the afternoon tea and a quite nice place for a brunch; I probably have been eating / taking tea there a small dozen of time over years, both in the teashop located in Le Marais, rue du Bourg Tibourg and also in the Rive Gauche, located 13 rue des Grands Augustins, also very nice. I have never been to the other two places in Paris though.
