L’OisiveThé a creative Tea Room

L’OisiveThé is à play on words. “Oisiveté” in French mean “idleness“. 
L’OisiveThé is a creative tea room.
A funky mix of Parisian tea salon and of more recent, trendy crafty spirit… A very international tea room.

The teas…


Tea 5€, cottage cheese with marble syrup 4.50€, cookie 2,70€

We took the “Thé des Moines” of Le Palais des Thés, the Monk Tea. 

A traditional Tibetan black and green tea mix, with 10 plants and flowers. A nice jasmine and bergamot sent.


We also tried the “Thé des Korrigans” of La Maison Donovan.

Korrigans is a legend creature from Brittany. A black tea with salted butter caramel flavour (of course 😉

It had a very strong flavour. 


The home-made chocolate and peanut butter cookie was delicious.  




I used to come to this tea salon when it opened few years ago…

Since then, it transformed into a knitting tea room ! I don’t knit (yet). Yet, I enjoyed the company of the yarn rainbows…

The yarns are hand dyed yarns from North America and UK.

As you can see they have a wide and coloured selection of yarns as well as teas.
From green tea, to black or white tea, half-fermented or fermented tea.
L’OisiveThé is located at la Butte-aux-Cailles, an area the 13th arrondissement of Paris.
“Butte-aux-Cailles” means mound of quails.
In my imagination, the origin of the name would have been a hill with quails flying around…
The truth is much more mercenary… 
Pierre Caille, bought the area in 1543 and named it ! 
They have lunch service and brunches on week-ends

A very international tea room spirit.
