Tea time is a moment for sharing, when the mind wanders to faraway lands and calm returns to our crazy world. In Ladurée Tea Time, the prestigious and iconic Parisian luxury patisserie, Maison Ladurée, pays tribute to this libation of the gods in its inimitable fashion.

With mouthwatering photography and beautiful illustrations, the leaves of this chic book are steeped with tea-time menus and more than sixty sweet and savory recipes fit for Marie Antoinette. Wrapped in mint-green tissue paper, with a padded cover and green metallic edge stain, and packaged in an elegant gift box, this sumptuous guide reveals the secrets of taking tea the Ladurée way and is topped off with a concise history of tea, a guide to the finest tea varieties, and tips on ultimate tea pairings.

Marie-Piere Morel specializes in gastronomy, lifestyle, and landscape photography for numerous publications. Always flooded with natural light, her photography is, in her words, “resolutely simple” and “lazy.” She lives and works in Paris.
