As I mentioned yesterday, Mariage Freres salon de thé
is next door to Cuisinophilie at 30, rue du Bourg-Tibourg.The tea salon is straight through and no photography is allowed = why the fuzzy picture.
If you make a sharp left up the narrow winding stairway, you'll find yourself in Le Musée du Thé.
Not even the staff come around...
all manner of tea canisters, tea pots (some shaped like elephants), old labels, etc.Doodling IS ALLOWED in the salon plus I stole a few shots.
The waiters are dressed completely in white and race around the giant palm planters. There's a skylight too that gives you the feeling you might be in colonial Singapore or Thailand.
Be sure to visit the museum upstairs next time you go :)
