Metro: Hôtel de Ville's insider take:

Founded in 1854, Mariage Frères is the sine qua non of the tea world. This place is known for the fine quality of its teas, as well as the unusual blends (with new flavors constantly being introduced) and the distinctive black metal pots. Uniformed "tea waiters" serve out loose-leaf with the concentration of jewelers measuring diamonds. Be sure to look at their line of tea-associated objects, including sturdy strainers and canisters, Japanese porcelain cups, and iron teapots. Other shops are at 13 Quai des Grands Augustins, 75006 (33-1-40-52-81-50), and 260 Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré (33-1-46-22-18-54).

Open daily noon to 7 pm.
