P & T MASTER BLENDS

 

In developing the Master Blends line, we set out to bring back the original art of the tea blending tradition while adding our own contemporary aromatic twists. With a nose for inspiring flavors, our collection of organic Master Blends elevates tea to new and exciting heights. Each original recipe weaves together a masterful palette of all-natural ingredients to highlight and celebrate the essence of tea. The P & T Master Blends line features organic tea and herbal blends which were created using fine teas pairing them with pure aromatic ingredients such as flowers, herbs & spices, dried vegetables, and seeds.

The practice of scenting and blending tea is almost as old as tea itself.  In the early days, the Mongolian nomads who ruled over the Tea Horse Road (the original tea trading route) added spices to tea brewed in Yak milk.  Over the centuries different cultures experimented with aromatizing their tea in various fashions, but it was during the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) that the blending craft was elevated to an art form. The objective was to take a special base tea and carefully embellish it with complementary natural aroma and scenting agents such as flowers (e.g. jasmine, osmanthus, lotus, rose), spices or essential oils (e.g. bergamot), in order to surprise and delight the palate of the emperor and his mandarins. 

In this way Brave New Earl, with its twist of whole juniper berries and a hint of jasmine, makes for an‚ Earl Grey meets Gin & Tonic’ taste experience; while Perfect Day is a delicate white tea blend with drifts of apricot and elderflower.
