My first trip to @mariagefreres5307 was in 1999. I was traveling with my young daughter and it was the most transcendent time-stopping experience. Since then I’ve visited all the Paris locations multiple times and today I’m having tea in Tokyo / Ginza and it feels so warm and cozy, like being at my best friends home once again for a beautiful cuppa. Every detail is attended to, service, presentation, kindness inside of protocol. It’s my spirit animal here. And brings a sense of calm and all-is-right-with-the-world like an inner spring. Never mind the fact that a typhoon is slated to hit here tonight. I’m in my bubble of tea, fig tart with a mattress of earl grey cream. 😍❤️
