Creative treasures of Paris# 8. Salon de Thé Mariage Frères.

When you want to shop or drink the finest tea of the world you definitely have to visit  salon de Thé Mariage Frères. I'm in love with the long history of salon du tea Marriage Frères (Mariage brothers). From around 1660 the Mariage family began voyaging the world to find the finest tea on behalf of the royal court. They traveled with the French East India Company to Madagascar and went on several trips to Persia and India. The Mariage brothers Henri and Edouard Mariage opened the first tea shop in 1854 in paris. The packaging and graphics are stunning and inspired on the long tradition of tea trade of the company. Now you can find over 500 varieties of tea laid out apothecary style with a wall of teas that get measured by the gram into bags or tins. Around the store you would find a assortment of tea-flavored and tea-scented products with exotic names like Carres d'or- Marco Polo (with real gold) as well as delicate pots and cups for tea preparation.
