At Tippytea, we've always felt a profound passion for celebrating the beauty and diversity of Ecuador, a country known for its rich culture, wonderful people, and remarkable gastronomy. As a brand dedicated to crafting top-quality organic tea blends and sharing the love for tea worldwide, we embarked on a very special journey, collaborating with Nuema, the prestigious restaurant ranked 79th in the 2023 edition of "The World's 50 Best Restaurants" by William Reed Business Media. Nuema, founded and led by the talented chef duo Pía Salazar and Alejandro Chamorro, has been recognized not only for its exceptional culinary experience but also for its commitment to celebrating Ecuador's biodiversity.
Nuema's Philosophy: A Tribute to Ecuadorian Culinary Heritage
Nuema's philosophy (much like ours) revolves around celebrating Ecuadorian biodiversity and showcasing the incredible variety of flavors that the country has to offer. With a focus on using the finest Ecuadorian ingredients, the restaurant's creations truly reflect th diverse ecosystems of the country, from the lush Amazon rainforest to the stunning Andean highlands and the vibrant coastal region. Nuema's dedication to quality and innovation has been recognized through numerous accolades, including Pía Salazar being honored as the "World's Best Pastry Chef" in 2023, a testament to her extraordinary talent and creativity.
Tippytea's Collaboration with Nuema: A Fusion of Flavors and Culture
Discovering a shared passion for highlighting Ecuador's culinary treasures, Tippytea and Nuema joined forces in a unique collaboration to create a collection of nine exclusive tea blends. Divided into three episodes: Sierra, Costa, and Amazonía, each blend showcases the distinctive ingredients of these ecuadorian regions. mThe Sierra episode captures the essence of the Andean highlands, presenting blends that combine the rusticity of native herbs with the delicate sweetness of local flowers. In the Costa episode, we celebrate the flavors of the coastal region, mixing aromatic herbs with the vibrant notes of tropical vegetables and fruits. Finally, in the Amazonía episode, we pay tribute to the richness of the Ecuadorian rainforest, blending exotic herbal treasures with the exquisite flavors of Amazonian fruits and vegetables.
Unparalleled Quality: The Art of Collaboration
This collaboration has been a journey of creativity and mutual respect, with both teams working together to create blends and infusions that represent the true flavors of Ecuador. With our dedication to sourcing the finest organic ingredients and Nuema's commitment to excellence, each blend is a work of art, carefully selected to deliver a sensory experience like no other.
