My Adventures in Niche Markets from Ikebana to Gong Fu Cha
Dear Rachel, I love to hear stories about tae and literature. Have you ever tried the Russian Breakfast tea by the French tea company Marriages Frères ?
Dear Beata, Thanks so much for this lovely note. Mariage Freres makes such beautiful teas, though they’re not always that easy to come by in New York. I recently discovered that Maison du Chocolat here offers a Mariage Freres tea and chocolate pairing menu. What a dream! I tried their French Breakfast with a caramel-y chocolate and can honestly say it was divine. I’ll be back to try more, and will be sure to look out for the Russian breakfast!
