Even if the Angelina Tearoom is world-renowned for its Old-Fashioned Hot Chocolate “L’Africain,” it’s obviously called a tearoom for a reason: they have incredible tea. Angelina’s tea selection is as refined as it gets and tea drinkers across the globe would definitely enjoy sampling their unique offerings.
Possibly the most important Angelina tea to try is the Thé Mont-Blanc. Named after their most iconic pastry, the Thé Mont-Blanc is composed of black teas distinctively flavored with candied chestnuts, maple syrup, and toffee. It is also enhanced by the fruity flavors of papaya, apple, apricot, and orange blossoms. If you’re up to enjoying this with a pastry, this perfectly pairs with the Tarte noix-caramel, a sweet pastry with walnut cream and walnut caramel.
The Thé Mélange Angelina or Angelina’s Special Flavored Tea is also a worthwhile choice. This tea is composed of premium Chinese Oolong enhanced by the fruity flavors of apricot, mango, sweet orange, and pineapple, and fragranced by the petals of marigold and carthamus. Pair this with a Merveille Nougat-Fruits des Bois, a delightful pastry composed of meringue, nougat mousse, blackberry and blackcurrant heart, light whipped cream, and ground roasted almonds.
The special Angelina teas are also available to take home in beautiful tins of loose leaf or tea bags. They’re not only a special treat to enjoy and remind you of your extraordinary trip to Paris. They also make for incredibly charming gifts to take to your friends and family back home.
