To wake up on dark mornings

Casually, the sun is setting earlier and earlier. To keep you awake despite the darkness, Laurence definitely recommends Chai Cha Noir tea: cloves, cinnamon, ginger, orange, black pepper, anise, cardamom, fennel seeds and coriander.

If not, she suggests taking an organic black tea from Africa or even a matcha.  

These families of tea have a high concentration of caffeine, which can replace your morning latte.   

For a dose of comfort when you have a cold 

Herbal tea Balsam Fir: made with balsam fir (a potent smelling North American tree), this aromatic blend helps soothe the throat and open the airways.

Herbal tea Flu fighter: it contains balsam fir, orange, lemon, ginger and lemon balm. All mixed with a mate base. The infusion is therefore caffeinated and ideal for a little kick when you wake up very congested.

Taming matcha

Matcha is the powdering of a green tea called tencha. Mix the powder with hot water, whisk and you're done. The green potion is known for its antioxidants. Those who are new to it usually mix this tea with hot milk and a sweetening agent, to taste.

“As it tastes quite lively, quite vegetal, quite frank, sometimes a little bitter, a wonderful way to have a comforting drink, it is a matcha latte, hot or iced, confirms the tea pro. You can sweeten it with a little honey. Thé Cha Noir also sells a complete set to shape your matcha at home.

The Queen's favorites

The late Queen Elizabeth II's favorite teas were Earl Gray and teas from Darjeeling and Assam. The Verdun tea house has these varieties, if you want to give a last cheers in its honor, on site or at home.
