We only have a week left in Paris and Mummy is trying to get a few more places crossed off our list. Where has the time gone?!?!?! Have we REALLY been in Paris for MONTHS and still managed to not see everything??? Today we had lunch at “La Jacobine,” a darling little restaurant in the 6th arrondissement. Mummy had the onion soup because she has to try that everywhere she goes. She claims that it was yummy, with a peppery taste… but can’t match the rich, brothy flavor of the onion soup offered at “Delmas” in the Latin Quarter at Place de Contrescarpe… which remains her very favorite after ALL of the bowls she has consumed thus far! But the restaurant itself, located in a tiny, covered shopping alley, deserves to be explored if you are ever in the area… it is simply CHARMING!!! After having lunch, we set off to find the tea shop of “Mariage Frères” which is just a few streets away. There, Mummy found herself in TEA HEAVEN, and being the lover of tea that she is, we spent quite some time chatting it up with the VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE tea staff! After deciding on a few teas, he suggested we go upstairs to the tearoom and rest for a bit, with a nice cup of hot tea before heading back to our apartment… what a lovely idea! Of course I was welcome in the tearoom as well! Mummy chose the Nepal red Himalayan tea and a little pastry… and I took a nap. They offered reading materials about tea, and here is what the founder, Henri Mariage, said in 1827: “The fragrance of adventure and poetry endlessly pervades each cup of tea.” There are several locations in Paris and if you love tea, I highly recommend that you find one and take the time to enjoy some tea like we did in their tearoom!
