L’Infuseur Paris: not your typical herbal tea

Complete Herbal Tea Set

Many people see herbal tea as a beverage for older people, with no real taste and that doesn’t exactly bring much pleasure. As a tea drinker myself, I tend to think the same.

Well, how wrong was I and here is the brand that made me rethink everything about herbal tea: L’Infuseur Paris. This young French brand breaks every code about herbal tea, and it does it with style and refinement.

This brand was created by Céline and fellow herbal tea lovers that helped her. Tired of this image of grand-mother, medicinal or plain beverage, they wanted to create something amazing, something beautiful, something modern that would change the image that traditionally follows herbal tea.

L’Infuseur makes you forget the negative clichés about this type of beverage and turns it into an elegant and modern drink that reconciles pleasure and benefits for your health. Made with only the best ingredients, this brand offers you high quality tea, with subtle yet original and delicious tastes.

Let’s take the Delight Infusion for instance. You will definitely be charmed by its amazing spiced scent and the ingenious blend of flowers and fruit that compose it. Looking for something simpler to drink after a copious diner? Then you should pick the Digestive Infusion. Its blend of aromatic herbs is sure to dowonders when your stomach is unsettled.

Or maybe something to make your whole body (and mind) feel better? Then let yourself be surrounded by the sweet scent of the Dé-Tox fruit-based herbal tea. Here at French Blossom, we love its amazing smell and wonderful taste that is not only good for your taste buds but also for your health and mood.

To enjoy these treats putut your kettle on and turn it off just a few seconds before the water is actually boiling. One spoon of tea should be enough to appreciate a mug of these amazing flavours. You’ll then have to let it brew for 4 to 5 minute depending on how strong you want your tea. And tadah! Now the only thing left to do is enjoying a warm cup of tea.

And we shouldn’t forget the small detail that makes the difference: the beautiful packaging in navy blue that’ll make you want to leave this herbal tea box on your kitchen counter for everyone to see!

Want to give these herbal teas a try? You can find them on our online shop right there: L’Infuseur Paris – French Blossom!

Arizona Tipis Black Ambiance

Arizona Tipi Blue Yellow and Pink

Today, I have the great pleasure to announce  the beautiful tipis by the Spanish brand Nobodinoz have finally arrived at French Blossom

We were really excited to receive these little Indian huts for children and now here they are! Measuring 1.50m and available in a variety of colours, these tipis can be a beautiful decorative item as well as the best playground ever for your little ones so they can imagine having great adventures in the far west, fending off mean cowboys.

These tipis can be placed outside (if the sun is out) as well as inside. Whether in the living room or in the bedroom, they will certainly bring some originality to your interior decoration thanks to the lovely patterns created by Nobodinoz. In blue, black, green or pink, with zig zags, scales or little sparks, you will surely find one pattern that can match the furniture and decorative items you already have in place.

Easy and quick to assemble, we especially love the vintage feel they give off as well as the dash of colour and originality they bring into the room. As for myself, I really like the tipi with the green and black sparks pattern. I love the association of white, black and green that can match numerous decors, whether it be for a little girl’s or a little boy’s room!

And for even more comfort, you can add the Apache large rug under you tipi. Made specifically to match the tents diameter, the rug can turn a tipi from awesome hideout to secret place to take an afternoon snooze!

Unsightly Yoga balls, fear not !

How many of you have bought a yoga ball, used it for a little while and then left it in the corner of the room, using it only from time to time? Hands up! My hand is up because i did just that.  With lots of good intentions, I bought one of these yoga balls, it was blue in colour and not matching anything in the home but this was for fitness and health so colour wasn’t priority – plus the only other colours in the shop were bright pink or neon yellow, so blue it was!

For the first few months, I used this yoga ball regularly to help stretching and a niggling back problem.  However, looking at this great big blue yoga ball in the corner of my room  did eventually get too much for me and I let the air down and the ball is packed away in a cupboard somewhere now. – Good news is, I did soon after join a gym! (These yoga balls also never stay where you put them.  Place them in a corner and they will inevitably roll all over the room, knocking things over.  Anyone who has had one of these yoga balls will know exactly what i mean.  No one in the shop told me it would be imperative to have one of those stands like they have in gyms for these balls.

If only I had known about these great yoga ball covers, (above) (a collaboration between ‘Page Thirty Three’ and  Texan Artist Magda Sayeg), I think my yoga ball would still take pride of place in the house.  I wrote about ‘Page Thirty Three’ Design agency in an older post but had to share with you this idea, the ‘Knitted yoga ball’.  – The way they have converted a boring yoga ball into a piece of art, a sculptural piece is such a great idea.  You can still use the ball for yoga purposes, or as a seat or even let it roll around the home, but it will roll around looking stylish!
