Disregarding the typical notions of what a tea shop should be, Berlin’s elegant Paper & Tea has refined its concept since opening its first store in the western quarters of the city. Teas are sourced from around the world—Asia, India and Africa—and include all types, from black, green and white to herbal and matcha teas. In its minimalist setting, Paper & Tea offers an unconventional shopping experience: All teas are presented in the open to allow customers to smell them as they make their selections. To complement its extensive inventory of teas, the shop also carries everything related to brewing tea alongside an array of stationery, notebooks and calendars.
