THE PARISIAN ART OF TEA
The British invented tea time - Parisian's improved upon it and Fauchon l'Hotel has turned it into an art…
Fauchon l'Hôtel Paris has announce the opening of the brand new Fauchon tea shop adjacent to the hotel at 11 Place de la Madeleine, providing a Parisian-chic world for tea-devotees. Here, visitors can create their own custom tea blend – or purchase one of the existing Fauchon blends – and enjoy their creation to the full in the elegant central tea garden – a space designed for the worship of Afternoon Tea. From its famous afternoon teas to the tea-infused cocktails of its 'Glam Hour', tea is woven throughout Fauchon l'Hôtel. Whether Green tea from China, Ceylon black tea, Darjeeling or Earl Gray, each tea has its own signature - herbaceous or floral, round or full-bodied – and blending is both an art and a craft deeply understood by Fauchon. Fauchon l’Hôtel’s Le Tea Time is €40 per person, or €50 with a glass of Champagne. It includes innovative pastry dishes created by the renowned Fauchon chefs. Of course everything starts with macarons – but Fauchon l’Hotel’s glossy black ‘bento box’ contains so much more: two layers of tiny indulgent gems from sweet pastries to smoked salmon and other savoury delicacies, all served with fruit and flower flavoured teas – the specialities of the house.
Nightly rates at Fauchon L’Hôtel Paris start from €450.
