Ms. Lin Guide and I found the gourmet confection connoisseur, Denise Acabo. I should post about it as she is a very sweet and endearing lady. Local Parisians can be found there and they were very gracious as well as knowledgeable. She seeks out the best treats around and one of the caramel au beurre salé she had was from Henri Le Roux. Years later Henri Le Roux has found its way into Paris with a beautiful store loaded with candy.
They offer a mariage gourmand where you can order green tea or coffee along with 3 caramels or 3 chocolates. The lady working there was very sweet and helpful. Before we paid, we ordered a tea with caramel set and a coffee with chocolate set.
There are three green teas, thé vert. You can choose from Sencha Yuzu, Genmaicha avec Macha, and Hojicha. Ms. Lin Guide chose the Sencha Yuzu along with the yuzu matcha, black sesame, thé caramel. This was 6.70 euros. The tea was very light and refreshing. I still had a bad cough so this really helped soothe the throat.
