Boasting the largest collection of teas in the world, from vintage and rare to fruity and herbal, the new site hosts a retail space, a restaurant specialising in tea gastronomy, a tea museum and two private event spaces. The shop offers all things related to our favourite brew: from tea-scented candles to teacups, books and paraphernalia. Meanwhile, freshly brewed Mariage Frères teas are available alongside a selection of sweet and savoury pastries in the restaurant. Head chef Felix Richard will also be preparing larger tea-themed meals. Don’t forget to pay a visit to the second floor, where The Musée du Thé showcases tea antiques from around the world. Guests can mosey around the hand-illustrated tea chests, Chinese furniture, old archives and an array of curiosities promising to provide a fascinating insight into the history of tea.
