Monday Afternoon: Le Palais des Thés

Monday, July 18, 2011 2 No tags Permalink 0

Who said Monday afternoons couldn’t be peaceful and productive?

Put on the kettle, we’re going with Le Palais des Thés today. I’m a sucker for muslin tea bags, soft and picturesque.

What flavor? Why, Thé du Hammam of course. It’s an intoxicating tea, a fruity blend of Chinese green tea and roses, orange flower water and dates—the same scents used in the Turkish steam bath.

And since we’re going with a French tea company, we must have an ice cream sandwich flanked with macaron shells. In the middle: a fresh strawberry buttermilk ice cream. Summery indeed. I wrote about these little gems by Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams on Serious Eats last week.

Bon appétit!
