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 Imperial Earl Grey is Enchanted.
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 drink 3-4 cups of tea a day, all black until my tumeric chai in the evening. I try to mix up the different types of english breakfast and earl grey that I drink to keep it interesting. But hands down, this is always my very favorite. From the very first sip, I often think, why do I even bother drinking anything else!?!? It is just perfection.
I tried the smaller bags this go around. Still delicious, but I like the stronger steep from the larger bags. Going to try the loose version next time.
I’ve tried many different teas. This is by far my favorite tea. I’ll be ordering more for myself and for gifts for the holidays.
