One cannot fully experience Paris without a visit to their famed tearooms. Whether sitting down to enjoy a proper afternoon cup or simply buying loose leaves to go (and later being able to say “It’s only available in Paris”), tea time in the City of Lights is a true cultural experience. When famed French tea brand Le Palais des Thés opened its doors in New York this past holiday, devotees were finally able to purchase many of the unique blends in their own neighborhood. Now the company seeks to immerse New Yorkers even further into the world of tea with the launch of special classes from their respected Tea School.
 Tea Tasting

Debuting at the Paris flagship, the Tea School at Le Palais des Thés introduces enthusiasts to tea blends and cultural practices from around the world. The courses also train student’s palettes in the delicate art of tea tasting. Produced in conjunction with 1000 Passions, the new Soho flagship is taking a cue from its European counterparts and will offer a series of tea education classes. Also like its Parisian sisters, the Manhattan locale will welcome New York City customers with a complimentary cup of tea upon arrival, offering an experience of “total immersion into the world of tea, accessing all the senses.”
 Single Estate Teas

The store provides over 100 tea blends from around the globe including a selection of “Grand Cru” teas –exceptional, limited edition Single Estate varieties, highly sought after by connoisseurs. Two exquisite blends will be introduced in the store: a limited edition Darjeeling from India, boasting woody and fruity flavors (gained from an infusion of stewed fruit), a hint of rose, lemongrass and honey notes; and Bao Zhong Antique, a blend from Taiwan with notes of dry wood as well as floral and fruit essences (yellow fruit, apricot, black fruit, red stone fruit, cherry) with a spiced cinnamon and clove finish. Customers will also be able to taste and shop from a specially curated collection of teas created exclusively in Paris.
