Thé-ritoires – Countryside cocooning

The days are getting longer and as soon as the sun is out, I already get this positive, almost spring-like feeling. But in the same time it is yet a bit too cold and early to say spring has arrived, and for grayer days I still appreciate a refuge from Parisian weather.

A new teahouse called Thé-ritoires convinced me as the ideal winter treat. It is ultra cosy: small and intimate and decorated with amazing taste, I could not stop myself from looking everywhere around me. The beautiful glasses, silver-plated cutlery and antique furniture make you feel you have left Paris for a chic and artistic cottage on the countryside. Even the acoustics have been taken care of so no street noise is allowed.

The place is run by a former archaeologist who decided to become a tea expert. After running his business for a while he decided to open his first tearoom. Everything in it shows that it’s a place completely true to his taste, even the menu: for every tea an explanation is given and it is printed on a soft kind of Chinese paper that a friend and I decided to take home just for the beauty of it.

All this magic does come with a price (a pot of tea starts at €10) but you can cocoon as long as you want as the very purpose of this placee is to relax. They also serve pastry, an excellent soup of the day (€ 6.50) and quiches – all homemade.
