Lily of the Valley
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
This flowery tea shop is a laid-back haven just north of the Marais.
Just around the corner from the Carreau du Temple, this charming little teashop is a great place to come for peaceful refreshment in a striking setting. With a ceiling entirely covered in pretend flowers and leaves, exposed brick walls and comfy flowery benches, Lily of the Valley is a very pretty break from the Parisian norm.
The tea here comes in many different varieties and colours: plain (black, green and white), infusions, scented (black and green), outright unusual (rooibos or chocolate roasted mate) or iced. To accompany your drink, choose between a number of alluring sweets like matcha green tea and raspberry cake (€3), just-cooked cookies and mini muffins. A typical tea costs €4.50 to drink on the terrace (each comes served in attractive, mismatched crockery) or €3.50 to take away, while a 100g sachet will cost €6.50-€18, depending on the brew.
