Les Jardins de Gaïa is an Alsatian company specialised in organic and fairtrade teas. I have already mentioned it, when I recounted a tea ceremony I took part in there. I then went back several times enjoy their tea house, the Maison de Thé Les Jardins de Gaïa.

Their tea room is very pleasant and peaceful. The inside lounge room was a bit disappointing, as it lacks a bit of charm to my taste. On sunny days, it won’t really matter, as you’ll discover the long shady terrace surrounded by zen gardens. You will find on the menu, a huge selection of teas  from Jardins de Gaïa – of excellent quality – and a few cold drinks. It might take you a while to choose… you have been warned! The Maison de thé doesn’t serve patisseries (it’s a shame if you come for an afternoon snack!), but they offer a few very good dry biscuits. It’s the perfect place to spend some time away from the hustle and bustle!

Don’t forget to have a look at the shop, selling an incredible selection of teas, as well as pretty accessories on the theme of tea.

I liked

  • The large and peaceful outside terrace
  • A huge selection of excellent teas
  • The shop Jardins de Gaïa, with an incredible number of teas

I liked a little less

  • The inside lounge room lacks a bit of charm
  • No pâtisseries available, but only small dry biscuits
  • I would have liked to have a bigger teapot!
