Sources of heat and warmth: Tea seminars at Paper & Tea

Paperteaberlin

Cupped in her hands, some Sejak steeps. The Korean tea, she says, is hearty. The tiny cup I drink leaves me alert, tranquil—sated

Everyone has raved about Paper & Tea, and rightly so. The staff I've met—the heart of any operation—are warm and knowledgable, welcoming and full of zest. Of course the museum-like interior is exquisite too:  those capacious drawers! those celadon teapots!

Passers-by are offered teas to try too, but those wishing to sample and discover at leisure will be pleased to hear the shop will commence tea seminars this month, one on white teas (April 14), one on tea as plant and ritual (April 21). 

And now to warm my own hands—don'tcomplainabouttheweather—around another cup of tea.

Just what we need on a cold spring day!

Oh, love that shop. And I'm not even a real tea enthusiast - it's just a beautiful place. I didn't know everyone was raving about it - good!
