Ethné and Philippe de Vienne have been crisscrossing the planet for the better part of 20 years in their quest for exceptional spices and authentic spice blends. Their daughter Marika, a fervent tea enthusiast, lived in China for many years and has since made tea hunting her profession. Arik, the youngest, is a gifted and accomplished ceramist who designs and hand crafts a growing line of practical tableware for – among other things – the wide assortment of spices and teas offered by his clan.
These are but some of the treasures that the de Vienne’s would like you to discover at their boutique Épices de cru. See, smell and even taste: three hundred unique and sometimes rare spices, as well as their made- in-house spice blends; more than sixty privately imported teas, sold in bulk or by the cup; original, hand-crafted ceramics, many created exclusively for the boutique.
Of course, none of this would be worthwhile without the assistance of our affable, well trained, cherished employees!
