We aged our Saigon Breakfast for 30 days in an oak rum barrel from Seven Caves Spirits, a San Diego small batch distillery dedicated to a “grain to glass” ethos. Very limited supply.

What people think

 I found the box and the experience completely delightful. The garnishes are inspired, and the selections are breaking me out of my "Earl Grey every day" rut. My husband and I enjoyed the blue chamomile with the garnish one Sunday evening while watching The Miniaturist on PBS. 

I just wanted to thank you for rekindling my enjoyment for the ceremony of tea.

Loved it from the first sip!!! Paru tea has soul, beauty and delicate flavors! Being a chef, I like experimenting with mixing Paru teas and other ingredients, sweet and savory. It is so pure and true and becomes an experience every time I brew it!!!

Best tea ever! The owner of Paru, Amy, is the sweetest, most knowledgeable person and she is SO dedicated to providing her customers with a high-end, quality product. It really can't be beat!
