Handmade and conjured by Old Growth Alchemy, this non-caffeinated herbal tisane is based on the gingerbread house our brother and sister duo find themselves munching up while lost in the woods. This blend is in particular based on the traditional German sweet, lebkuchen, and the ingredients you find here wouldn’t be too far off from a traditional recipe. Hexenhaus is a sweet and richly spiced brew that wouldn’t go amiss with a dash of honey or maple, or if you want to try your hand at a latte is makes a delicious gingerbread-y brew. 3.75 oz of tea by weight presented in a glass jar.
Recommend infusion of 1-2 tablespoon of loose tea per 8 oz of hot water and infusing for at least 5 minutes. The flavors and scent will change the longer it steeps, so be sure to take some time while your brew infuses to experience the journey.
Notes: Sweet | Spiced | Gingerbread
“…when they came nearer they saw that the house was built of bread, and roofed with cakes, and the window was of transparent sugar.
‘We will have some of this,’ said Hansel, ‘and make a fine meal. I will eat a piece of the root, Gretel, and you can have some of the window - that will taste sweet.’
So Hansel reached up and broke off a bit of the roof, just to see how it tasted, and Gretel stood by the window and gnawed at it.” - From “Hansel & Gretel” by the Brothers Grimm
