new tea palace in paris


damman freres started their tea business way back in 1692 under the reign of Louis XIV, becoming the exclusive distributors of tea in france at the time. their firstboutique for us mere mortals [before, the products were only sold in gourmet epiceries] has just opened at the lovely place des vosges , selling classic and flavored teas in gorgeous tins. [side note: the boutique is open right now, but will close at the end of march for an expansion...so go now!] 15, place des vosges, 4th arr.
