The tea shops in Paris are simply on another level and I love seeking them out. NINA’S Paris, is one of those completely adorable tea shops and I was delighted to find the shop by chance since it was right around the corner from our rental apartment. I was first introduced to the brand last year at the Taste of France in NYC and remembered that they source their fruits and flowers from the gardens at Versailles.
Ok, let’s take a look inside the shop…
It’s all things Marie Antoinette.
Gorgeous. All white, with touches of gold ornate details. Tea tin canisters lined up on the wall with all their teas.
Their signature tea is, of course, named after Marie Antoinette. It’s a black tea with rose petals, apples, and rose.
The packaging is really pretty and they do something I’ve never seen before, which is to pack the tea bags individually in mini boxes. Love it.
Now, the best part? The shop has seating (albeit, just a couple of tables), for tea and cake! It’s such a nice way to spend a little bit of time taking a break from shopping on rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré.
For 15€ (yes, a bit of a splurge), you get a tasty slice of their Marie Antoinette cake (pink!), created just for NINA’S Paris by a Japanese pastry chef, and a pot of their Marie-Antoinette tea. All served in pretty teaware. The cake is interesting since it looks really dense, but it’s actually pretty light and goes perfect with the tea. A great combination.
One last look before braving the streets of Paris for more shopping…and eating.
