Time for Tea

Le Mariage Fréres

I am fast approaching the end of my third week in Paris. By now, I have sat in countless cafés and have drank countless cups of coffee. In the whirlwind of new adventures, I had nearly forgotten my addiction to green tea. I quickly remembered when my group met with Professor Horowitz about our final project and she served us some delicious red tea.  One cup wasn’t enough so I had to go by more. Professor Horowitz suggested a famous tea shop in my favorite quartier in Paris. Located in the Marais in the 4e arrondissement is Le Mariage Fréres, a shop over 150 years old. I spent a fair amount of time in the shop smelling almost every single type of tea they sold. I settled on a beautiful lavender and rose green tea for myself, the famous “Marco Polo” blend for my little sister, and an exotic red tea fruit blend for my best friend – but don’t tell him because I might just keep it for myself…

Trying to decide what to buy… Solution: Buy them all
