Tea Cup Tuesday From Paris!

How about a little Parisian Tea today? Let's say we go to Laduree, I heard from Tristan that the macaroons there were not to be missed, so lets go there!

Look inside....interesting moitif....lovely classical music playing. Let's get a table in the back corner, it's so cozy there.

How about some chamomile tea?


and some incredibly delicious eggs and bacon!


The tea is fabulous!


Here are some macarooms to try.....hmmmm....they don't look like macaroons from back home. There is one vanilla (heavenly taste!), one rasperry (Mmmmm), one pistachio (aaahhhhh), and one carmel (unbelieveably good!).
I would go back to Paris just for more of these!



Someones front door


Windows on Paris


A lovely flower shop


Aromatic herbs

And on one of many totally quaint cobblestone streets....


more delicious pastries we could try on our walk back home.
I hope you enjoyed Tea in Paris. The china at Ladurees is their own brand.
Thank you for coming along today. I hope you had a good time.


Hugs to you all, or should I say a kiss on each cheek, like they do here!
Terri
I am sorry we were having trouble with Mr. LInky today. He seems to work now. Just fill in the two blanks below so we can come over and visit your tea. It is o.k. if it is Wednesday.
Don't forget to go see Martha at Martha's Favorites. Her and I host this fun tea each week on Tuesday and she always has goodies to see.

Hi Terri :) Looks like you are having a fabulous time in Paris!! You LUCKY girl you, lol :)

I guess Mr. Linky wasn't in the mood for tea, lol, but now he's changed his mind, hey :)

Teacup Tuesday will just be lasting another day, which is fine by me. I've had a chance to see some of the posts done for today of Blogs that I follow, but now I'll be able to catch those that I am not following yet :)

Have a wonderful day, wish I was there!!!!!!

Warmest always, Brenda

I went there in my honey moon and all was marvellous there...we are thinking go there in our next anniversary ,we will be 18 years together and it's time to return to Paris...Love

Norma said...

Merci Terri! Such lovely photos and what a treat to see inside the tearooms! I've seen a lot of mention of Laduree on miniblogs (yep even mini folk like French tea!) and those little coloured French macaroons are one of the most popular foods to produce in mini these days. How wonderful you could try it all for real!!

Susan said...

Wow Terri! You are in Paris? Tres bien! How very exciting. Have a fabulous time. Aure voir (???) Susan

KathyB. said...

I am thinking I would love to see Paris and I would most likely enjoy eating and drinking my way through it all the while appreciating the gardens, art, and simple pleasure of sipping coffee or tea on a sidewalk cafe. I have enjoyed YOUR trip especially.

The pink teacup is very elegant and sophisticated, and even though it is pink, I don't think any man ( or no-fu-fu woman) would feel it too feminine to drink coffee or tea from it. Very nice!

Sue said...

Hi Terri- Martha invited me over tonite so I could share my pseudo tea party. I can't believe you are posting from France and showing such lovelies. I guess tea is the same in every country- just different varieties of goodies! *grin*
So nice to meet the both of you.
:-) Sue

Marjanne said...

thanks for the beautifull pictures of 'my' city, I live and work in Paris, but after so many years, you don't see the nice spots anymore... and you need some foreign eyes to open yours...

bunny said...

I'll take a half dozen carmel and half dozen vanilla...Oh! they look and sound so scrumptious. How wonderful that first of all, your in Paris France and secondly, inviting us to tea....thank god for computers.
Have a amazing time Terri and hope to see more...

tootles,

Nancy said...

I am so enjoying this trip to Paris...I feel like I'm almost there! I definitely wish I could taste one of those macaroons! Have fun!

Jacoba said...

Hi Terri,

The interior of Laduree looks so nice, the 'trompe l'oeil' on the walls, the china, the silver, the atmosphere. All your pictures show us wonderful Paris!
Thanks for sharing your tea with us!
Have a wonderful Wednesday in Paris!
Jacoba

Lady Katherine said...

As like Martha, I would love to have been stuffed in your suitcase! Oh, loved the tour of Paris! So wonderful to take a trip here on my computer! Couldn't you just shipped a few of the macroons home? lol Oh, How wonderful they look. I would be honored if you and Martha continue to link your lovely Tea Cup Tuesday to my Tea Time Tuesday each week. So sorry about Mr.Linky. Sometimes it is challenging to blog. lol I know I had some problems the last few weeks, finally I figured out why I had so many spaces, when I would post. I loved having Tea with you in Paris! Adore the door! The pastry shop!

Hi Terri

Thanks for sharing your Parisian travel journal - it's a great place isn't it, especially if you can do your exploring on foot seeing all the little streets and alleyways.

Enjoy the rest of your stay and all those cakes and pastries!

Wow, you really are in Paris? I must be really out of the loop, i had no idea Terri, that is awesome!!!! I have so enjoyed going over your posts, loved the flea markets, enjoy the rest of your time there :)

Tristan Robin Blakeman said...

ahhhhhh, tea at Laduree's! How perfect! I'm feeling a macroon jones coming on just from looking at the photos! So glad that you enjoyed it! I only learned TODAY from Judith at studiojudith.blogspot.com that they make a TOWERING Chocolate Macaroon CAKE. I so need that on our next holiday!

Your photos look like you're really getting around! Good for you! Is your husband enjoying Paris as much as you?

Are you going to see Versailles?

Marlynn said...

Just one word, girlfriend, WOW. Beautiful photos! I gained 3 pounds looking at the pastry!
