The Story Of

The Tea Lab

The Science of Tea & the Art of Brewing

Summer 2014. First time in Vietnam. After a two hours’ drive from Seoul, we stop at a hut in a small village to meet an 80-year-old tea scientist. Behind her, a wooden cabinet with endless small drawers labeled with unknown tea concoctions--spices are ground with a ceramic pestle in a carved mortar to maintain supreme freshness and quality. A sand timer guarantees a perfect brew that extracts 100% of the health benefits and fine aromas from the precious leaves. Our tea set, designed for the modern kitchen, treasures the timeless knowledge of that ancient craft.
