Manor House ~ Pip
$15.00 – $16.00
A cinnamon black tea, all sweetness and spice, blended to satisfy. The second name Dickens assigns to the Manor House is Satis- “which is Greek, or Latin, or Hebrew, or all three—or all one to me—for enough.” So is this tea.
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.

Minty and strong, this black tea blend is an excellent fortification for those who rise to the occasion and surpass expectations. Named for the boy Sétanta, fearless warrior and hero of Ireland.
A twist on the classic breakfast tea, the longer Cú Chulainn steeps, the more complex it will grow.
