"Un Après Midi à Paris" tea
Après-midi à Paris is a unique tea where each leaf encapsulates the soul of a moment. The top note is delicate, powdery rose, the middle note is soft, sweet vanilla, and the base note is a bouquet of elegant citrus fruits. And you'll find yourself dreaming of a break on a café terrace, the nonchalance of a stroll through the Tuilerie, the magic of a walk in love. This is one of our most popular teas, and its creation reveals the unique expertise of our company.
Madeleine, in 1898, by Auguste Fauchon.
We'll use this magnificent tea to create a mocktail
Accompanied by the Rose de Grace
The Centifolia rose, endemic to the Grasse region, only flowers once a year, in May. Famous for the excellence of its fragrance among perfumers, we love to breathe it, cook it, distil it, infuse it and, of course, eat it.
