Tea was invented in China and is just as important for the Chinese as wine for the French. The older the tea, the more exclusive and the more expensive. If you also love tea, go to Song Fang Maison de Thé .
This shop, founded in 2007 by a French native, Florence (who has worked for Dior cosmetics in Russia and China and as the General Manager of Veuve Clicquot in China) has the finest quality of Chinese (and French) tea. Florence has such a great passion for tea that she left the LVMH group to start this company.
Behind the counter are tea experts who you can compare to sommeliers. They will help to find the right tea for you. Upstairs is a tea salon, where you can enjoy some of this great Chinese invention!
