The Angelina Tearoom is also known for its unique chestnut offerings. The chestnut flavor makes very unique and delicate confections, especially for people who are looking to find something more unique than the typical chocolate-based desserts. Its light nutty taste makes the chestnut very versatile, thus making it suitable to be used in both savory and sweet dishes.

At the Angelina Tea House, the chestnut is presented quite exquisitely in the Velouté de châtaignes. It is a chestnut cream soup with summer truffle breakings that is served beautifully in a small milk jug.

For tea, the Angelina Tearoom has a chestnut offering as well. Thé Mont-Blanc is made of black tea, which is flavored with candied chestnuts, biscuit, toffee, orange blossom, and apricot. Although, it presents a complex flavor profile, the taste of chestnut really shines through.

You should definitely not miss their most divine offering: the Mont Blanc. The Mont-Blanc is a mouth-watering confection with the chestnut cream, being the main ingredient. Noodles of chestnut cream top a crisp meringue covered in light whipped cream, makes this dessert a great combination of heavenly surprise. It is really easy to understand why they sell up to 600 of these a day in the tearoom alone and over 2,500 per day across the whole of France.

The Angelina Tearoom is definitely a place you will enjoy, if the unique flavor of chestnut fascinates your tastebuds.
