Journal du Thé is the independent magazine for tea lovers.
French-inspired, published in France and printed in Germany, Journal du Thé is deliberately a magazine for enthusiasts created by two lovers of this drink: Johanna Tagada Hoffbeck and designed by T.S. Wendelstein. In their free time they try to collect tea experiences, flavors, stories and essences from all over the world.
Particular attention is paid to photography and graphics, which with a lot of gracefulness accompany the tea ritual, fitting perfectly with the idea of pause, friendship and regeneration that tradition wants to give to this drink.
The magazine is recommended for enthusiasts who want to discover new things about their favorite drink and for those who like to explore the world of food.
