Italian Olive Oil and English Tea in Paris

Does anyone have any leads on stores where I can get
- PG Tips, Typhoo, Taylor's and Barry's (yes, I know it's Irish and not British) tea in Paris?
- Frantoia olive oil from Italy? No Italian shops I'm finding seem to carry it.

      And I assume M&S stocks their usual English products and their tea stacks up well against these UK brands.

    2. Found Frantoia today, finally, in a specialty Italian shop and it was more expensive than what I used to pay in New York!!

      1. Irish store, groceries, sweaters, and liquor on Bd Voltaire just west of Rue Charonne. Next time by will check and see if they have teas.

          You're absolutely right, I found it! It's called Comptoire Irlandaise.
          And their site shows they have Barry's AND Bewley's.

            Just went in and they have those two plus a couple more but no Typhoo or Tips.

        2. there's a British shop in the 16th -- otherwise Carrefour and Auchan carry PG Tips, Yorkshire Tea and Typhoo (albeit not always at the same time)

          1. Take a look in the Indian stores around Passage Brady and Gare du Nord.
