French gangsters, a goofball anti-hero, and a pretty American in Paris are the main ingredients in Jean-Luc Godard's 1960 New Wave masterpiece Breathless (À Bout de Souffle). The passing of French cinematic legend, Jean-Paul Belmondo, earlier this week has us reminiscing about the Parisian art and sensuality that inspired our black tea blend, Breathless.

We created this velvety black tea as an interpretation of our favorite ice cream flavor - Agenaise, armagnac-soaked prune and vanilla - from the inimitable ice creamery Bertillon. Our Breathless tea nods to Gina's life in Paris as a student (and later professor) of French where she spent as much time exploring Parisian delicacies and film as she did poring over French literature and history.
