Once known only by ardent tea lovers in the West, Pu’er tea, the world’s most expensive and prized tea from which the old saying “all the tea in China” is derived, is now gaining popularity worldwide. Singapore-based TEASPEC, which has the largest private collection of Pu’er tea outside China, is displaying its wide range of luxury teas at the inaugural Shamanic Tea Experience at London’s Mandrake Hotel.
LONDON (PRWEB) October 03, 2020
Ultra-luxury Pu’er tea company from Singapore, TEASPEC, was unveiled at the Mandrake Hotel London’s inaugural Shamanic Tea Experience (STE) last Tuesday. The event, which was hosted at the Mandrake’s acclaimed YOPO restaurant, captures the imagination by displaying the most exotic teas from all over the world. On display were TEASPEC’s exquisite collection of high-end Pu’er teas of various vintages, as well as their highly versatile LazyGo Travel Tumbler, exemplifying the contrast between the traditional and the modern in the world of tea. The STE menu was curated by Executive Chef George Scott-Toft and aims to exhibit the rich history behind thousands of years of tea drinking.
“The demand for healthy, natural beverages and coffee substitutes has increased over time. Consumers today don’t just want healthy tea. They are looking for a sustainable, superior, stimulant and that is what we aim to provide with Pu’er tea,” said TEASPEC founder and Managing Director, Carole Tan. “A BBC article last year said Canadian researchers at McGill University had found that tea bags used by various brands had been leaking high levels of microplastics into water. A single tea bag releases billions of particles into the hot water. Plastics are harmful to the human body and we wanted to make sure that all TEASPEC tea bags are made from biodegradable corn fiber from Japan that contain no plastic.”
Offering dozens of colourful and innovative designs, TEASPEC products are sold all over Europe and Asia. “We are so excited to be at the Mandrake Hotel London and we can’t wait to share this with the tea community in London,” Carole remarks. “Pu’er has been the most prized tea in East Asia for over two millenia. We love it, and that’s why we want to introduce this to the many tea drinkers across the United Kingdom.”
TEASPEC was founded in 2015 by connoisseurs and seasoned Pu’er tea collectors. TEASPEC is carried by some of the best known brands in retail and hospitality such as Harrods in London, One and Only Resorts and Singapore Airlines’ Krisshop. With a desire to make tea the gift of choice for all seasons, TEASPEC makes beautiful and premium gifts which are sold in store or online. The team at TEASPEC believes that a gift of tea is a gift of health. What started as a passion project has become a fully-fledged enterprise that aspires to raise awareness of Pu’er tea all over the world. Product images and reviews are available on Instagram @teaspectea and @lazygotumbler.
