If only your “someone” would share your sipping. It’s a hard road, to convert someone from one hot-drink preference to another. Not that you would presume to try such a thing.

French Afternoon Tea

Friday, June 8th, 2012

We often asked why ‘Chateau Rouge’ and why French tea sold in England? Well the answer is really simple, besides being in love with both Paris and London, finding it impossible to have to live in only one or the other, and creating a brand that enables us to have both. The real question you may be asking is, if England is known the world over for it’s love of tea and in many ways for creating the ‘afternoon tea’ tradition, then how does France fit into the picture and do they really drink tea in France?

A Picture moment...Earl Grey and cake for afternoon tea today with all the ladies

Lorraine was not feeling well this afternoon and had to entertain two of her lady friends who came over for afternoon tea. Being the ‘house of Chateau Rouge’ they asked for the best teas possible, which lead into a discussion of all the options available…and guess what…they chose Earl Grey. Not such a masculine tea after all, must be the flowers!

Chateau Rouge Speciality Tea at Bath Coffee Festival

We had a great time at the Bath Coffee Festival in Bath. It was our first trip out to that part of the country since launching in Harvey Nichols.

Tea popularity is definitely on the rise and a whole tea ‘re-education’ under way – a journey of tea discovery and hopefully discovering something remarkable along the way. After all it is a journey not a destination! Read the rest of this entry »
