These pillows are a family tradition handed down from my Tài Pó (great grandmother) as she made during the Qing Dynasty. She made tea pillows from the family’s leftover leaves by drying them on bamboo trays under the sunlight. She slept on the tea pillow every night to clear her mind and to encourage restful sleep. The leaves would eventually turn into tea dust and then refilled over and over again.
To adapt this tradition to our modern life, we include parts of the tea plant that extend the life of our pillows while containing aromatic and flavor compounds.
These pillows can be enjoyed just as they are or with warmth. The warming strengthens the tea aroma for soothing halo of therapeutic aromatherapy. We use cotton fabric for breathability and softness like they were made three generations ago.
