|Green Tea with Jasmine - one of my favs!|
My new favourite place to buy tea in Paris! They sell loose tea, tea bags, teapots and all kinds of accessories. It's just around the corner from the very much more traditional Mariages Freres
, and that makes the contrast between these two establishments even more apparent. For example, Kusmi do blends such as "the detox", "the boost" and the slightly curiously named "sweet love"!
And, look how pretty the bag is! It's fun and young, in a cool kind of way - as you'd expect in the Marais really - and that's just what this place is about!
Personally, my favourite shop is situated at 56, rue des Rosiers, 75004 (because the manager there is very helpful) although they have outlets all over France, including in BHV and Galeries Lafayette, as well as others in the 6th and 17th arrondissements. I've also seen a limited range being sold in Monoprix stores. Click here
