Overview

Open daily from 10:30 à 19:30, the tea counters, surounded by the "walls of tea " made of more than 600 "tea merchant " large and high layered tins, enclose rare and fine treasures.In addition to the greatest flushes arriving from 30 tea producer countries, you can find there, Mariage Frères' famous blends. The choice, probably the largest in the world, still grows richer with new discoveries for the tea connoisseurs, exemplifying the strength of a French Art of Tea that Mariage Frères represents and succesfully exports in the whole world.Ancient furniture and massive oak counters display many collections of teapots of all styles, shapes and origins, all the paraphernalia, from the tea-services to the tea caddy-spoons, filters, tins, tea gift sets, incenses, tea scented candles. Not forgetting, of course, the gourmand delights created by Mariage Frères: tea-jellies, tea-sablés (shortbreads), Chocolats des Mandarins® which recipes were already in our tea house last century.
