From Adagio Teas Custom Blends

Meet Saa’ken Yarniss, first Tricursis from Project Tribal of Rashex, Nonanut dimension. Enter his compelling, cunning state of mind- the founder of his species, traveling were-beasts between worlds. Called the Exalted Sun among his kind, he retains a very small court of his most trusted allies while he schemes. Cool yet alluring peppermint and hojicha smoothly interlaced with chocolate provides the dusky internal mental backdrop while masala accentuates and brings clarity enough from the dusk into taking action. Saa’ken is not completely ruthless and does have a heart behind him in his own way- as evidenced by the accents of luscious, deep cacao. Enter his lair and spend some time with him. The Exalted Sun has requested an audience with you, and it’s time for tea.

This didn’t turn out quite how I expected. Instead of the flavors and spices layering together into distinct phases of the cup as I’d hoped, it moreso blended and became its own entity. Which honestly works considering the character’s species history in Project Tribal. The peppermint plays very nicely, the spice is barely noticeable and not overpowering as planned, and the flavor is quite literally “dark”- it is a fullbodied taste without being overly dry, and is very subtle in the way the chocolate mint plays throughout- it’s not an in-your-face chocolate mint profile and makes a compelling background. At the same time, this is a tea which needs to be focused on and respected for what it is. I’m certain I’ve caught the essence of this character in a flavor, and that’s pretty (bleep)ing exciting. :) It’s not an in-your-face powerful tea, so it may be underappreciated by those expecting/wanting a strong cup wherein each flavor is tasted consecutively, but it’s definitely really good. Dare I say great?
