My girlfriend and I are visiting Paris in a few weeks. She can't drink coffee (stomach ulcer), but enjoys tea. My memory of previous Paris trips leads me believe that tea for breakfast can be a bit challenging. We are staying at a small hotel, and plan on breakfasting at a small cafe nearby that we frequented on our last trip. But if memory serves correct, tea was fairly expensive - more so than coffee. What are the best options for morning tea? Is it common to order morning tea in cafes?
And other than afternoon tea at some of the fancier hotels, are there smaller tea shops (as in sitting to drink, not to purchase dried tea) that someone could recommend in the Marais area?
