About France

Field of Lavender, Provence, France. Public Domain photo.
France is a country in Western Europe, located on the mainland just northeast of the Iberian peninsula, just south of England. France borders Germany to the northeast and Spain to the southwest.

The climate of France is diverse relative to its size, varying over different geographic regions. The west and northwest have a temperate maritime climate similar to the United Kingdom, whereas the southeastern coast of the country has a Mediterranean climate. France also contains part of the Alps, as well as the Pyrenees, both of which have a cold snowy climate at the higher altitudes. The eastern portion of the country has a climate closer to a continental climate, more variable than the coast.

As a producer of herbal teas

France does not grow tea, but it grows a number of herbs used in tea, including chamomile, lavender, lemon verbena, linden, and mint. Parts of France may be suitable for growing the tea plant, especially a narrow stretch along the Atlantic coast in the southwest, including French Basque Country and a bit north.

Although it is less known for its tea culture than the UK, France has a rich and active tea culture, and there are a number of prominent French tea companies. French tea culture mostly centers around blends and flavored teas, often combining locally-grown herbs with imported teas.
