No trip to Paris would be complete without the obligatory visit to the Angelina Tearoom on rue de Rivoli. Luckily, it’s close to some of Paris’ most important destinations, and the stroll along the side of the Jardin des Tuileries is incredibly pleasant.

On your first visit, the hot chocolate and Mont-Blanc are your best bet. You can’t visit Paris without having both at the Angelina Tea House. If you ever have the chance to visit a second time, let it be for tea. The Mont-Blanc tea will change the way you look at tea forever. It’s Angelina’s custom blend of black teas enhanced by candied chestnuts, biscuit, toffee, orange blossom, and apricot flavors.

If you’re open to a little zest in your life, pair your tea with the Tarte Citron. It’s a sweet pastry with smooth lemon cream and candied lemon. The acidity and sweetness are perfectly balanced in this creamy tart that it’s easy to finish the pastry all on your own.

If you’re not too keen on the tart, try the Merveille Nougat-Fruits des Bois which is part of their newer pastry collection. This features the Meringue similar to the Mont-Blanc’s but is accompanied by nougat mousse, blackberry and blackcurrant heart, light whipped cream and grounded roasted almonds.

When you’re done, purchase a sample of macarons for you to take out. If you have to limit yourself to the small sampler of four, go for the Mont Blanc, Pistache, Caramel, and Framboise. If you can wait, these are best enjoyed with a view of the Eiffel Tower. C’est tout!
