At TEALEAVES we source our teas and botanicals from the world’s tier-1 gardens. The fuller the leaves, the more robust and complex the palate. Whether from a single-estate or a combination, we carefully source to curate blends that are the very best expression of terroir. We bring the finest teas, flowers and herbs to our blending center, and meticulously cup out each ingredient, searching for the ultimate palate and nuanced complexity. The best harvests are sent to us as samples.
To make the perfect cup of tea, please refer to the back of each tin for steeping instructions!
We have been the blender of choice for five-star hotels and Michelin chefs worldwide. And now, you. Blending is at the core of our philosophy. We have earned our global reputation for skillfully pairing teas and botanicals to craft the ultimate palate experience. Our approach to blending is not limited to teas and botanicals. With deep-rooted values in craftsmanship, innovation and art & beauty, we blend techniques, stories, people, companies and ideas. The goal: to inspire connections and creativity, on the search for the ultimate lifestyle.
AROMA: Sweet and nutty, enveloping floral bouquet. PALATE: Soft and exotically mellow. NOTES: High antioxidants and low caffeine. First blended over a decade ago for the Mandarin Oriental Hotels, this tea is perfumed with a sweet and complex bouquet of lychee, which is prized for high polyphenols and an intense floral taste.
The blending of fresh or dried fruit is a time-tested method of integrating flavors into tea. This particular blend incorporates lychee, a member of the soapberry family with a delicate whitish pulp and a perfume-like flavor. Native to China, it is now cultivated in many parts of the world. Try the neoclassical rendition of the Taiwanese - the ”muddling” method of hot fruit teas. Muddling a few lychee fruits, add them to your teapot and pour the Organic Lychee Green over the fruits. Savor the sweet and exotically mellow taste, or try this iced for rejuvenating summer afternoons. This blend is especially wonderful as a delicate iced tea infusion. Best infused a shorter time than the quintessentially tannic yield of green teas – the Master Blender suggests steeping it for 45 seconds at 63°C (180°F). Also try it using the muddling method described above!
