Tea most sublime


Hiro pointed out some "posh tea place" and I squealed with delight when I realised that it was in fact the Mariage Freres tea room!


The tea selection was mind boggling and each tea has its own tale. I learned something new in Paris and that is that the French have magnificent tea.



Along with their delectable teas they had marvellous cakes. I had a Rose Babylone which was a carefully constructed bit of edible art. It consisted of a hibiscus jelly, a pink grapefruit macaron, pink grapefruit segments and babylon tea flavoured sorbet and an elegant wafer.

SUBLIME!!

I just wish that the lighting was better!
