Tea Time

Throughout history, tea has always been a vehicle for connection...

For us, tea is a symbol of togetherness. Acting as a vehicle to bring us into the present and awaken our senses, tea also has the ability to slow one's pace. While we are in the depths of winter, with spring trying very hard to bear its head, it can feel like a busy time of year.

This week's combination of tea blends, incense, perfume and reading material, are a reminder to take a moment to be curious: Black tea infused incense, with its scent of dried hay and slight smokiness of tobacco; An ethereal perfume fragrance of rich Chinese tea that creates a wisp of warm spices and honey. Leave and Flowers Tea is about appreciating the aromas, revelling in the feeling of connection, and letting each unique tea blend's exotic plants and spices transport you to future memories and possibilities...

NEW IN — Journal du Thé magazine invites the reader to explore contemporary tea culture. Created by Johanna Tagada Hoffbeck and Tilmann S. Wendelstein, Journal du Thé wonders what it is that makes tea a force which allows us to slow down and grant serene moments to our lives. It is said that what makes a teapot a teapot is the empty space inside. Likewise, this publication sets out to explore space, in this case: the space surrounding a cup of tea. With a curious and playful eye, Journal du Thé investigates the palette of cultures and feelings contained within tea practices and their power to overcome borders.
