Having friends over for an afternoon cup of tea is an elegant and warming tradition that should be cherished and continually rediscovered. Francois-Xavier appreciated what tea represented, as well as its many promising rich flavors and wanted to share these pleasures with the people of Paris. So in 1987, he opened up his first little boutique, Le Palais des Thes, in hopes that the Parisians, who have exceptional taste and style, would embrace his passion for tea. 24 years later, with 25 more boutiques warming the streets in countries from Japan, to Israel, to Belgium and Slovenia Les Palais des Thes, seems to make the cut. The unique selection includes more than 100 green, black, oolong, pu-erh, and rooibos tea creations, certainly something to be impressed by. Don’t you think it’s about time to invite a few friends over to share a cupp’a tea? Stop by Maison d’etre before your darling little tea party and have a look-see at our selection of these special Parisian creations.
