The tea revolution has begun
While coffee shops have become a mainstay in the western world, tea parlours and boutique tea shops are starting to become quite trendy and fashionable. Paper & Tea was founded in Berlin and is one such a specialty tea shop. Inspired by the legacy of tea, especially in Asia and the Middle East, the shop takes there-defines and promotes the role of tea in creative and modern lifestyles.
There is an interesting story behind the start up of this amazing tea shop: the founder, Jens de Gruyter, actually sailed the seven seas of the world in the quest of the perfect cup of tea. As a result, the shop sells only the finest whole leaf teas and is pioneering a tea culture in Berlin. There are also a range of beautiful, specialty tea accessories and artisanal paper products on offer, which are bound to inspire more tea drinking in this city.
