In addition to the store devoted to chocolates, macarons, pastries and gifts at the Hotel Fauchon and its Grand Café open in 2018, Fauchon takes over the Place de la Madeleine again with a brand-new and first “Thé & Infusion” [Tea & Infusion] store. Let’s head to 11 Place de la Madeleine to discover a 21sqm store in the colors of the brand.
On site, we discover two sides, one being exclusively devoted to teas, the other to herbal teas. In the center and around, windows displaying accessories for tea and sweets to pair it.
On site, we also have the entire collection by Maison Fauchon, including nice metal boxes, loose teas and infusions sold by the weight. The asset is that we can smell the entire range thanks to the display units available.
The must in this store is that you can create your very own custom-made infusion. Choose among the 4 mixes available depending on your needs and top it with one or two items among flowers, spices and herbs (16 references are available).
For a night tea, I go for the “Moment Tranquille” [Quiet Moment] base that includes lemon balm, verbena, linden and matricaria. The seller gives me some advice as for the best toppings for a quiet night. Between rose, poppy, lavender, orange blossom, I choose poppy to also bring a nice color to my tea and a bit of sourness.
The assistant harmoniously blends the tea in front of me and fills the bag so that I can pay by the weight. My creation costs me between €12 and €13.
Then, you can customize the tag with the name of your choice, perfect for a personalized gift!
So, how about discovering Fauchon tea’s universe, shall we?
