Coffee can shake our senses and streamline our mind for productivity. Yet, sometimes caffeine can cause us to surpass the simple art of relaxation. When you want to melt into your softer side, the ritual of tea can be a great replacement. The art of tea is practiced across the world; from mint in Morocco to Zen like ceremonies in Japan. We invite you to embrace your own ritual with these tea leaf suggestions for your downtime…

Moonlight Jasmine Blossom //

Delicate as a strand of silk and as fragrant as a spring morning – this Japanese flower tea literally blooms in the water. The wildflower is plucked from the Okinawa region and hidden inside a tea ball to dry, before being scented eight times with jasmine. The presentation of this tea is a ritual in itself, save it for a special moment.

 

Maghrebi //

Also known as 'moroccan tea' or 'mint tea', maghrebi is a green tea prepared with spearmint leaves and sugar. A traditional social drink in Maghreb, it is the norm to welcome guests with it, and to drink at least cups whilst socialising. Known to quench thirst better than cold water, magrehbi is a welcome refreshing drink, particularly in hot climates.

 

Moonlight White // 

The poetically named and gently potent brew is a gorgeous gateway drink for those who are entering the world of tea. The title of this tea comes from the fact that you are supposed to wither the leaves under a slant of moonlight rather than the sun. Hints of smoked peach and a creamy finish make each sip a wonder to behold.

Yame No 5 // 

This sencha tea comes from the village of Hoshinomura in Japan. As soft as freshly mown grass and with mellow notes of roasted almond, every sip is fresh and pure on the palate. This is the perfect tea for quiet mornings contemplating the world outside your window.

 

Lapsang Souchong //

The first black tea in history, Lapsang Souchong is hailed as a living legend for tea sommeliers. All the way from Wuyi region of China, the leaves are traditionally dried on pinewood fires lending to the smoked flavor of this deliriously dark tea. Perfect for late mornings when you want to meditate over a book.
