Woodsy, mushroom notes.

Olivier Rœllinger's words

Madame Tseng from the House of Three Teas in Paris and I promised one another we would get together to discuss tea and spices.
As we talked about our own personal journeys and the long and storied past of the Spice and Tea Roads, we envisioned a spice blend that marries the two.
Here, an aged 2002 pu-ehr tea is used like a spice and paired with the woodsy, mushroom notes of mace and Karimunda peppercorns.
I envisioned a blend that would evoke the scents and sensations of a woodland scene— the cool, damp earth as it is warmed by the sun, the decomposition of the first fallen leaves, and the fragrances that emerge from the shadows and light that fall between the trees.


"Madame Tseng is one of the foremost tea experts in the world. A descendant of Chinese nobility, she began studying the art of tea when she was a young girl. At her tea plantations in Taiwan, she oversees both the harvesting and processing of tea leaves.
In the mid-1990’s, she opened La Maison des Trois Thés—the largest tea cellar in the world—in the heart of Paris.
Madame Tseng and Olivier Roellinger have collaborated to create three unique spice blends with exceptional teas from Madame Tseng’s collection: Vasco, Shadows and Light, and Flower of Beauty."
