The famed Parisian tea company, which has been in business for nearly a century and a half, opens its first U.S. store, selling its selection of teas (both loose and hand-sewn into muslin sachets). Tins include the Detox, with lemongrass, maté and green tea (a supposed favorite of Lady Gaga, ooh-la-la!), and the citrus-and-vanilla-scented Prince Vladimir black tea. Cups for immediate drinking will not be available right away, though they may be at a later date.
