Seyine Park /

Bringing together food and tea, color and mood – TEALEAVES (luxury tea purveyor to Michelin chefs and five-star hotels worldwide) and Pantone Color Institute collaborated with 34 chefs and mixologists to produce an exquisite online exhibition, #PaletteForYourPalate. One can only imagine the beauty that is possible.

Founded and based in Vancouver, Canada in 1994, TEALEAVES is a tea brand used by five-star hotels and Michelin-star chefs, worldwide. In a recent collaboration with Pantone Color Institute, they invited and chefs and mixologists in the USA and Canada to draw inspiration from the latest packaging and translate it onto a plate or into a glass.

These are the results.
