Atop the Monde Arabe Center on the Seine i believe there is a well-known tea shop or at least an eatery known for its tea and great views from the roof-top watering hole

I've heard the Paris Mosque also has a good chai shop

We had a nice lunch in a charming tea room called the Tea Caddy. It's right around the corner from Shakespeare and Co.

A second vote for Mariage Freres...this was the highlight of an absolutely pouring-rain day for us some years ago in Paris. We had a wonderful brunch with all things "tea", tea-smoked bacon, "gunpowder" tea flavoured cheese, Earl Grey Jelly on our scones and,of course, "the cup that cheers". Just loved the atmosphere...

The lobby salon at the Plaza Athenee Hotel. Elegant, fabulous service, delicious tea and not expensive (for what you get). Great people watching spot.

Also, Cafe L'esplanade by Les Invalides (right next to the LaTour Maubourg metro stop). Serves MariageFreres tea. Chic, good service, very comfortable (not spindly) chairs. FYI, they do not welcome children, at least not young children. I love sitting there late afternoons in winter, watching the lights come on.

Laduree. Rue Royale branch. Sit upstairs under the cherub-clad ceiling. Buy something to take with you afterwards so you can have one of their lovely green boxes to keep.

I want my ashes spread beneath the display case when I die.

There is a charming tea-house in the garden of Musée Guimet.
