Over the years I’ve become quite intimate with the back streets, local hang-outs and unexpected corners of the city… the better I get to know Paris, the more I love it. I share my favorite spots with my guests on SOJOURNER TOURS Best Kept Secrets and Off-the-Beaten-Path sojourns… and, I thought it would be fun for some of you to test your knowledge and get to know the city better.
Please post your guesses! I love seeing your ideas.
HINT: I make an annual pilgrimage to this shop to buy my year’s stash of luscious teas. I love all the pomp of the old-fashioned shop, watching them weigh my tea with the ancient scale… and I especially love the personal treatment I get from the moment I walk in the door. The vendors are artful at translating my tastes into an adventure of new tea discoveries. Oh and the aromas!!! Now you may recognize the canisters right away… but did you know that this tea merchant has more than one shop in Paris (and this is NOT the well-known one in St. Germaine)… no this is a smaller one with a tiny “tea museum” upstairs. I found it by chance because it is right across the street from the boutique hotel I chose for our Best Kept Secret Sojourns.
Surprise me and guess the name and location of this shop!
