Handmade and conjured by Old Growth Alchemy, this special blend is a play on the Brothers Grimm sleeping beauty. This black tea base blend is rich and dark as the woods and brambles which surround our sleeping maiden. Nettle offers its deep green flavor to make the bed of our brew with the rich spice of clove to dance with the bergamot laden Earl Grey. Rose tops out the blend with its kiss of sweet fragrance and soft floral nose. A blend fit for royalty.
As a black tea blend, I would recommend an infusion of 1-2 tablespoon of loose tea per 8 oz of hot water and infusing for at least 5 minutes, but it can easily and deliciously go for longer. 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.
Sense Notes: Woodsy | Rich | Spiced
Deep in the darkened woods
Lies one who waits in ancient slumber
Curled in thicket, brambles intertwining
For the warm and rich light of day
