Must buy tea here but beware the choices.

If you are a tea lover, this is the place for you. So many exquisite options that the choices can be overwhelming. When in doubt of what to try or what to buy I always ask what is the best seller. The answer Marco Polo. I never would have chosen it on my own but after tasting it, it is... read more

I returned to this fabled tea maker, bringing a friend and having looked forward to the experience with great expectation. We planned to shop then have lunch.

A good friend took us there to have the most surreal cup of tea and pastries. This is not just a tea shop it is a snapshot back in time to a different age. The staff are immaculately presented in their linen suits. The whole atmosphere is calm and serene and gave a welcome break from exploring the city

Dropped in to get some tea for a friend. "We've never sold that kind of tea." Which is odd as my friend has the packet. At 9 euros 100g I expected it to be gold. The old-fashioned cashier girl was nice, but the salesperson was pretentious and the prices ludicrous.

Our Choice was ok, suggested by the waiter from our request to try green tea from these origins. Nevertheless I would have expected a more precise advice and more... More

Yes, the tea is fragrant and delicious...and you can get Mariage Freres's teas in many locations around the world now, but the experience of being at the Original MF is something quite sensual and, yes, Parisian.

We brought 5 children to lunch - they were friendly and accommodating with some of the best salads!! I have been to many of their restaurants but never with children. It was a good experience as everyone enjoyed their food and also loved the teas!

The Mariage Freres is much more than just a very good tea house. It offers big variety of delicious and beatifully prepared dishes. Great for brunch, lunch or just afternoon tea. You can also buy the tea that you ordered (and had never heard before) plus the one you didn't get the chance to try, on your way out!

Neighborhood Profile
Odeon / Saint-Michel
As the bustling center of entertainment for the residents of the Rive Gauche, the activity at Odéon never stops. Boulevards are lined with traditional cafes, restaurants, and boutique cinemas. The streets surrounding the fountain at Saint-Michel provide eateries from around the world. Lively bars are just next door and the prototypical terraced French brasserie is on every corner. The setting for this area is second to none; the Haussmann-style boulevards are contrasted by monumental architecture and overshadowed by the iconic Notre Dame, all within a moment’s walk from the Seine. This neighborhood's world-famous bookshops, cafés, and streets will not fail to impress you.
