I wasn't looking to replace my favorite scone in Paris, honest, I wasn't. Before writing this post I even went back to Rose to make sure - and I am - Rose's scone is no longer number one. This L'Oisive Thé cranberry scone is moister, tastier and has that "hard to eat because it was falling apart" tenderness.
As for the tea in this cozy teahouse in the 13th, it was tea. I don't know from tea - it was warm and nice - I picked it from their lengthy tea menu and it served me fine. I'm sure the Puffin will opine on it in the comments in a favorable way - she bought 100 grams on the way out.
My mind was clearly on the scone the whole time I was there - it was that good. They serve cookies and cakes too - which I will try on my next visit for sure. It's a very comfortable, warm place - with an emphasis on knitting - there are sweaters and yarn for sale - see the back wall in this photo.
We were there on a sunny afternoon. We took advantage, lounging for some time, reading some of the books from their bookshelf, sipping tea and debating our next lazy steps on a Saturday with nothing pressing on the horizon.
