My wife and I have discovered a salon de thé in Grenoble, and we are hooked: It is called Jardin de Thé, and it is home to some mighty tasty teas. I have really fallen for the St. Sylvestre, a black tea with hints of cinnamon and cherry, and my wife is partial to the Promenade des Anglais, another black tea with plum and almond flavors. I had never really bothered with loose leaf tea before this, but we are now well on our way to becoming tea snobs: We have stocked up on loose leaf tea from Jardin de Thé, and have supplemented that with additional teas from Harrods during our last trip to London. We bought a tea kettle to brew, and a nice hourglass (four-minuteglass?) to time the brewing. I even have a strainer at work, so I can make my favorite teas there too. If anyone has any suggestions on good teas, brewing techniques, or tasty treats to accompany the tea, let us know!
