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 Passionate Pear is Uplifted.
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.

I am enjoying this tea almost every afternoon at work, or on the lanai, as a welcome break to chaotic days. The flavors are delicate, subtle and elevate my senses to a level of enjoyment I never thought could be found in a cup of tea. These blends have brought me to a whole new level of joyful experiences that I have only read about in what I thought were 'stuffy' novels. Tea Time Elevated. I selectively 'gift' samples to colleagues and friends and they are also impressed with the quality of these teas.
Balanced and smooth. No bitter after taste
