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 the sealed envelope that made it all the way through the Atlantic, the aroma is unbelievable fresh as if just picked & packed: 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 2 brews pretty well. The liquor is amber & gold like a sunset.

Flavors: Bergamot, Caramel, Earth, Honey, Leather

» Some thoughts about tea, infusions & teaware.

I drink mostly Earl Grey. Enjoy Irish Breakfast, Darjeeling, Assam, Ceylon. Love Masala Chai, Jasmine & some greens from Japan. I like blends as long as they taste natural & are well balanced. I’m new to Oolong & Pu-erh which so far taste fantastic. Some infusions that I make on a regular basis are orange tree leaves, lemongrass, guava, apple-cinnamon-cardamom, etc.

Casi siempre bebo Earl Grey. Disfruto del Irish Breakfast, Darjeeling, Assam & Ceylon. Me encanta el Masala Chai, Jazmín & otros tés verdes del Japón. Me gustan los blends siempre & cuando el sabor sea natural & tengan un buen balance. Soy nueva con el Oolong & el Pu-erh los cuales hasta ahora me parecen fantásticos. Algunas infusiones que hago regularmente son hojas de naranjo, limón, guayaba, manzana-canela-cardamomo, etc.
