I’m used to green based Jasmine Tea, so I tend to forget the adjustment on the temperature which it’s crucial for brewing white tea. The smell & freshness of Paper & Tea teas just blows my mind. The smell is like if you were taking a night walk through a humid jasmine forest. The flavor besides the obvious jasmine, is like a mossy,earthy & a hint of smoke. The liquor is light vibrant yellow. Although it holds 3 brews quite decently I opted for a bit longer one brew, like my jasmine to knock my cup up.

Flavors: Floral, Jasmine, Smoked

Since I’m a designer I’m pretty visual. Paper & Tea caught my eye for it’s outstanding branding & after some research that led me to conclude that the brand posses an authentic love & knowledge for tea. I’ve never seen tea leaves this beautiful. As soon as you open sealed envelope that made it all the way through the Atlantic, the aroma is unbelievable fresh as if just picked: fresh, preticor (the way the earth smells after the rain), citrous & a hint of honey & caramel. Don’t have a point of reference for black teas from Yunnan but I feel it’s a bit less bolder than the regular blacks, but holds a nice character strong enough for a pick me up tea, the bergamot is always present but discretely & the tastes of honey & caramel comes with every zip making it almost a treat. The best thing is that this is one of the few teas I posses that holds 3 brews pretty well. The liquor is amber & gold like a sunset.
