"ONCE upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary, Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore,— While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping, As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door. "'T'is some visitor," I muttered, "tapping at my chamber door; Only this and nothing more."
Of course we all recognize the infamous poem from whence I've drawn the name for this enchanting spiced tisane... Poe's "The Raven". This blend is brand new to the shop thanks to a lovely customer who contacted me and requested it.
It's a rich and highly aromatic blend of cinnamon, orange peel, rooibos, licorice root, cardamom, anise seed, and cloves. Since it's caffeine free, it's the perfect sort of tea for a sleepless night when the moon is riding high in the sky and fallen leaves skitter along the ground. I like to brew it on the strong side and add a healthy dollop of raw honey. If you enjoy spiced teas, but prefer no caffeine, this may be just the brew you've been searching for.
You'll receive one 2oz resealable zip-top package of tea.
In general, you can expect to get around 10-14 cups of tea per ounce, this will vary based on your own personal preferences and brewing habits. I tend to like my tea strong so I will brew with a heaping rounded teaspoonful per 5-6oz of boiling water. I find it absolutely worth the time and effort to accurately measure your tea and the precise amount of water so that you can brew your perfect cup each time.
My teas are of premium quality, whole leaf, and FRESH. They sell like crazy at the outdoor summer markets I attend each year and they flew off the shelves in my retail store front - I have people coming back time after time, either to buy for themselves again or because a friend had recommended my teas to them.
*Please be aware that this tea is packaged on equipment that also packages peanuts, tree nuts, soy, and wheat.*
