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 English Breakfast is Bold.
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.

Love this tea! Smooth, not bitter. Stands out from all other teas; just delicious!
I’ve loved this tea from the bold taste to the aroma to the pyramid and packaging. However, I’m extremely disappointed in my most recent order. It seems that there is not as much tea/and or it is weaker in each pyramid, so now I have to use 2 teabags to make 1 cup of tea in the same cup for which I was previously using 1 bag. The individual packaging seems flimsy and cheap in comparison to the old design. And, when I opened the shipping box to find 50 teabags haphazardly thrown into a plain cardboard box, rather than the nice white box they previously came in. Poor preservation. On top of all of this, the price went up since my last order in 2020. I don’t know if all of these changes are COVID related, but I am so bummed and I don’t know if I will order again.
No bitterness and and it great in the morning to get you going!
