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: Sweetly intoxicating. PALATE: Delicate with the whisper of a pear finish. NOTES: High antioxidants and low caffeine. First blended for the Four Seasons Hotels, this blend is crisp and sweet, without a hint of asperity. Estate China green tea, perfumed with the essence of freshly plucked ripe pears.
This tea was first blended to show how meticulous artisan blending techniques can properly balance medium-tannic Young Hyson green teas (mountainous harvests) with the character of fruits. Pears are one of the world's most popular fruits, having been cultivated in China for millennia. In this tea, natural pear enhances the green tea's soft, slightly-tannic tones. Great served iced or hot! Sweet memories of childhood. Closing my eyes, I am eleven again, sitting in the arms of a pear tree, eating the ripe fruit, not a care in the world. A moment captured in time, fleeting yet enduring, contained within the steeping tealeaves. I stare into my teacup as the melee in front of me turns into a screen leading back to memory lane. "We use some of the teas for smoking our food products and the flavor they pick up is great, especially the combination of Pear and Berry with our Duck Breast." - ICON Calvin Belknap
