Open daily from 10:30 à 19:30, the tea counters, surounded by the "walls of tea " made of more than 600 "tea merchant " large and high layered tins, enclose rare and fine treasures.In addition to the greatest flushes arriving from 30 tea producer countries, you can find there, Mariage Frères' famous blends. The choice, probably the largest in the world, still grows richer with new discoveries for the tea connoisseurs, exemplifying the strength of a French Art of Tea that Mariage Frères represents and succesfully exports in the whole world.Ancient furniture and massive oak counters display many collections of teapots of all styles, shapes and origins, all the paraphernalia, from the tea-services to the tea caddy-spoons, filters, tins, tea gift sets, incenses, tea scented candles. Not forgetting, of course, the gourmand delights created by Mariage Frères: tea-jellies, tea-sablés (shortbreads), Chocolats des Mandarins® which recipes were already in our tea house last century.

Nice tea shop in Le Marais. Vast selection to choose from. Furthermore there is a quirky little tea museum on the second floor. Tea room has a nice selection of pastries and great tea, but is terribly overpriced in my opinion. I'd skip that if I were you.

I only went here because I had time to kill and I had a cousin back in the states who was saying this is the place where she'd go to kill time in Paris. So in getting her some tea, I found this spot and was so impressed. The tea I brought back for myself is amazing (Eros) and I... More

We visited Mariage Freres in Rue Cler which I think is not opened long ( we don't remember it being there in August). We visited not knowing what they sold and were surprised to find a stylish and calssy shop selling tea! Worth a visit.

So i visited a while ago, but what a magnificent experience!! The staff were top class and the environment incredibly inviting. One feels time lapsed into a bygone era, being entertained with delicate tea time delights and wonderfully fragrant teas! Save up and go, enjoy the spoils and take some tea home💚💜💙☕️

Always crowded, but yummy and interesting teas! Probably becoming much more of a tourist attraction than when I previously visited about 7 years ago.

I spent all morning in the shop to smell the fragrance of variety of tea leaves. It took awhile to pick a few as all are uniquely blended and offer wonderful odor. The ambient is elegant but homey. The service is superb.

If you are in Paris and you like drinking tea, make sure that you stop by Mariage Freres and take some home with you! They sell some of the best blended teas in the world. The staff was friendly and very knowledgeable. I recommend the French Blue and Marco Polo blends.

Stopping in at Mariage Freres is a must for any tea-lover in Paris. The tea-room serves more varieties of tea than I had time to count, and the service was impeccable. The attached tea-museum was a very nice touch, and after the visit to the tea-room and museum, don't forget to buy some of your favorites to take home.

Waht not to love! They have beautiful teas, which I cannot find anywhere online. I live in the US, and every time I come to Paris, I stop to get more tea, they are great for yourself or gifts. They are located in Carrousel du Louvre, an underground shopping mall within the Louvre.

Staying in Le Marais

Neighborhood Profile
Le Marais
The Marais is a winding maze of multi-faceted streets that beg to be explored. It bursts with small boutiques, historic buildings, cozy traditional restaurants, and hidden parks. Around each corner, you'll come across little gems of architecture spanning the centuries, from understated medieval towers to classical libraries and 17th century splendor. This neighborhood unites a rich mix of people of all ages, but it's best known for the gay scene mostly in the south and the Jewish community around Rue des Rosiers.
