In the beginning of this month I enjoyed a lovely evening at the Palais des Thés event: “French up Your Day”. As you may remember from a previous post, the Palais des Thés tea shop in SOHO is a favorite of mine.
This French soiree was a wonderful demonstration of how tea can be a part of your daily routine. There were three tea stations broken up by different times of the day; Breakfast/Brunch, Afternoon Tea, and Cocktail Hour. Can you guess which one was my favorite? If that wasn’t enough of a treat, they paired each station with decadent treats by Canelé by Céline, Alain Milliat juices, and delicious Pommery Champagne.
Perfect way to start the day with the Breakfast/Brunch Station featuring a pairing of Chocolate Canelé with “Thés des Lords”. I’m a big fan of breakfast teas so this was probably my favorite tea table.
Afternoon tea – Break up the day with my favorite from the table; the Berry Elixer: “Thés du Hammam” with Alain Milliat Blueberry Juice. This very popular combination was refreshing perfect for a hot summer afternoon.
Cocktail Hour – My favorite tea was the “Thés des Vahines Rooibos”. These teas had a very sweet aroma but the taste was smooth and refreshing. At this table they were serving savory truffle Canele and Pommery Brut Royal with a dash of Carla Lavender Essence Syrup. It was delicious!
Thank you again to Palais des Thés!
