Undoubtedly the most relaxing hot beverage, the intricate tones of this blend are well brought out when made with warm milk (dairy or plant based).

Our Tea Master recommendation - for an even better brew!:
- Reduce the amount of water for steeping and top it off to 8 oz with milk (warm or cold both tastes great!)
- Add honey or sugar to taste
- Remember, our teas can be steeped twice to "get more out of the bag!"
