No one loves their tea like the British, but give me tea in Paris any day over tea in London. Specifically, Ladurée in Paris has been serving tea, hot chocolate, and coffee along with the best confections known to mankind since 1862. Clearly, the people here have had a lot of practice, and they have perfected the art. I’ve had high tea at the fabled Brown’s and Claridge’s in London, lovely indeed, and full of ladies in tweeds and sensible shoes. But there’s more to tea than just tea, and Ladurée offers sumptuous treats, featuring its specialty, macarons.
