If you're looking for the best tea place in Paris (not only to drink it, but also to buy some), the place to go to is Mariage Frères (Mariage mean marriage in French, but in this case it's the last name of the founders Pierre and Nicolas, who started their "business" back in... the 17th century). They now have several outlets - they actually call them Comptoirs, like in the old times - throughout Paris, France and even the world. I took this photo in the original location of the company, rue du Bourg-Tibourg, in Le Marais. It was packed, even more than usual, due to the pre-Christmas period.
