Leaves and Flowers Tea

botanical infusions and loose leaf teas, sustainably grown and harvested...

We are happy to announce the arrival of a new brand to store, Leaves and Flowers, a California based tea company offering a unique selection of handcrafted botanical infusions and premium small batch teas.

Leaves and Flowers Camellia sinensis teas are sourced from around the world and chosen for their impeccable quality and flavour. At its conception, Leaves and Flowers established a close community of local farms who provide them with exceptional herbs for their herbal infusions. All of Leaves and Flowers botanical infusions and teas are loose leaf, and sustainably grown and harvested. Like the herbal drying and blending methods, much of the harvesting and processing is carried out by hand from their California workshop. Buds and leaves are hand-picked, then skilfully oxidised, pan­‐fired, rolled or fermented to achieve the desired result.

Founded in 2014 by Anna Morton and Emily Erb, the female pair utilize locally grown botanicals to create their infusions, in hopes of offering a botanical experience that honours the beauty and lore of the plants. Inspiration comes from the plants themselves – the mythology of their medicine, their potent leaves, delicate flowers, and the intoxicating aroma and flavour they release when infused. The climate controlled drying room is designed to preserve the plants at the peak of their vitality. Once the herbs have been dried, they are stripped from the stem and stored away from light and air to maintain their impeccable vibrancy. When blending, herbal ingredients are kept as whole and intact as possible.

SHISO DAYDREAM Purple Shiso, Peppermint, Fennel Seed, Licorice Root Flavor Notes - Fresh, Minty, Anise

In this blend Purple Shiso leaves are grown by a friend, Sari, in North Carolina. The flavour of Shiso is somewhat indescribable –somewhere between, cinnamon, mint, anise, cumin. It is an unexpected yet harmonising flavour that complements and accentuates the freshness of the other ingredients present. We recommend this tea for any time of day, but especially in the afternoon to awaken your imagination. 18-20 servings per 1oz loose leaf pouch.

All ingredients are sustainably harvested and cultivated without the use of chemicals. 22-24 servings per 3oz loose leaf pouch.

"Taking time to honour the many skilled hands that produce the tea ignites a feeling of reverence and gratitude,” Morton says. “Tea also enlivens your senses, and invites you to be more present.”
