Creating the Universal Language for Aroma
Why is it so difficult to articulate what we are smelling?
The Art: Right Brain
“Aroma is a powerful trigger of memory; a brief whiff can create vivid, potent images in our mind, associated with a confluence of recollections.” - Lana Sutherland | CEO, TEALEAVES
Exploring the relationship between aroma and mood, each blend is crafted in homage to a unique scent memory. The mood of Calming Chamomile is Calm.
The Science: Left Brain
Utilizing headspace gas chromatography to index scent molecules in our blends, and applying Microsoft's Principles of Inclusive Design to create codified data visualization, we created the first iteration of the Language of Aroma.

Very nice. There is a soothing and naturally, mildly sweet flavor to this chamomile. I have a loose leaf organic German chamomile at home from another company, it is less flavorful and less smooth (almost bitter). In comparison, this tealeaves chamomile is noticeably smooth and sweet/flavorful. The tealeaves flavor and tea quality is superb. The packaging however could use improvement. The packaging on the individually wrapped bulk classic tea bags are compostable (I think) and as such do not look and feel as high quality on the outside as the signature tea bags. If ordering in bulk, prepare for some of your tea bags to be crinkled; the bags come in one big box and some get wrinkled. Quality of flavor and tea is still outstanding, it’s just the look.
The chamomile tea smells wonderful even before it is brewed, and unlike some herbal teas, it tastes as good as it smells. This is the best chamomile tea I’ve ever had.
Beautiful color, very calming and refreshing. It's good any time of the day and smells wonderful too.
