The flavors of Dickensian London are present in this tea blend, with Pip’s cinnamon sweet hopefulness and citrus-bright positivity mingled with the tannic disappointments that galvanize him into further action each chapter. No aromatic oils. Just spices and tea, to fuel your climb.
Hand blended in small batches: cinnamon, two black teas and orange peel.
