🎼Tea for two and two for tea 🎶
Picorette is a delightful tea salon nestled in a quiet pedestrian street in Granville in Normandy.
This is not a place to grab a quick cuppa in between shopping; instead you deliberate, savour and relax. The choice of teas is extensive – 146 of them to be precise – including herbal, fruit, green, Earl Grey, Rooibos as well as traditional black tea.
Next, is the decision of what to eat. I finally decided on a warm chocolate sponge with a soft fondant centre, topped with vanilla ice cream and chocolate curls. The perfect accompaniment to the organic red Earl Grey I opted for. As well as tea and cakes served in the morning or the afternoon, they also serve lunch with food freshly prepared on the premises.
Before you leave, browse in the boutique where you can buy jams, soap, candles, pottery and tea accessories. If you were deliberating about your choice of tea then you can buy tea to take away and try at home. Or, for that really special present, their famous advent calendar is on sale each November. If you’re looking for somewhere to stop for afternoon tea in Granville, Picorette is highly recommended. A lovely place to enjoy afternoon tea, Normandy style.
Details of bars, cafés and tea rooms are available from the Granville Tourist Office.
