You might not think that tea is very Parisian, but the city is packed with places to indulge your senses after a long day of trekking around the Louvre Museum or climbing up the Eiffel Tower. Here’s our pick of the best places to enjoy afternoon tea in Paris, with more madeleines and macaroons than you could possibly imagine.
Supernature restaurant was founded by Clémentine and Christophe, who are passionate about healthy eating while delighting in creative invention, and so you’ll find an impressive range of herbal teas with proven health benefits on offer here. But the ultimate gem on their menu is the coconut milk dessert, deliciously made from natural coconut milk, then seed-topped to promise an explosion of deliciousness with every spoonful. They’ve also pioneered a fabulously filling chocolate brownie made of granola and a miel de châtaigner dessert (chestnut honey), topped with goji berries. It would be a crime to stop here for afternoon tea and not try some of these incredible yet healthy desserts.
If you’re a fan of dining in the most delightful art deco elegance, then deciding to go for afternoon tea and then dessert at L’Orangerie in Paris should definitely be on your cards. The cakes are artistic masterpieces in themselves, almost too good to eat, and priced at a set rate of €23 each. From their crunchy Tahiti vanilla to Meringue Flower or chocolate soufflé, there’s certainly something to excite your taste buds whilst enjoying a well-deserved pause.
