After a crazy day at the Summer Fancy Food Show, I headed to SoHo to attend an event held at one of my favorite shops. Le Palais des Thés and Fraiche PR can always be counted on for a good time filled with wonderful teas. You might remember that I attended their grand opening back in January. This days event was deemed “French Your Day” and it featured several French food and beverage brands.
I was tea logged from the trade show so I started off with some delicious canelé, made by Canelé by Céline. There were many wonderful flavors but I think that my favorite was the savory black winter truffle. The fruit juices from Alain Milliat were delicious and just what I needed to recover from a very long day. Champagne Pommery and Baume des Anges also provided beverages that I heard were delicous. I did not partake because I already had so much to eat and drink that day.
There many tea blends being served both hot and iced. Among them was the rooibos version of my perennial favorite Thé Du Hammam as well as Thé des Vahinese. Thé des Lords and Big Ben were both served hot. Although I did not know most of the people at the event, I was so happy to run into Georgia from Notes on Tea and Sara from Tea Happiness. This event was a perfect end to a hectic but fabulous day.
