Mary Shelley's Green Tea Blend
Since there are no references to tea in Mary's writings, the inspiration for this blend came from the green tea she enjoyed as well as popular foods and flavors found in countries they visited during the time of the writing of Frankenstein, namely blackberries and chocolate.
We incorporated both into this green tea blend and added sweet blackberry leaf as a nod to Mary's sweet tooth. This heavenly blend brews up to a golden color with a sweet fruit taste and an undertone of chocolate that will elevate your taste buds.
Inspired by Shelley's eloquent words in Frankenstein, "I feel my heart glow with an enthusiasm which elevates me to heaven…".
Ingredients: Green tea, (organic) cacao nibs, sweet blackberry leaf and flavoring.
Directions: Brew tea at 180º - steep for 2-3 minutes
1 oz of loose tea makes approximately 10-12 cups of tea.
