Broussonetia Papyrifera, blue ink & raw linseed oil

Conserved tea wrapper hand-made from fibres of the Paper Mulberry tree (Latin: Broussonetia Papyrifera) by Essence of tea produced 12 years ago in the year of dragon.

The photo was taken after drinking the last 7 grams (of a total of 400 grams) of Pu Erh tea produced in the Bulang area in the province of Yunnan, China, an area known for producing powerful, bitter and long-lived teas. This Bulang Shan showed notes of camphor, citrus, honey, bitter vanilla, wood, eucalyptus, menthol, oak, fire and smoke.

In an attempt to preserve the motif and add saturation to the paper, the tea wrapper was soaked in raw Swedish linseed oil for an hour and dried slowly afterward. Finishing layers of resin based varnish may be added in the future.
