From Friday Afternoon

As much as there is light in each of us, so is there shadow. We all have a dark side. There are parts of you that you’re not proud of, that you don’t want anyone to see. There’s a tea for that. Brew this dark tea, cave-aged in Malawi for six years. Breathe in the pine smoke it carries on its back. Rosemary means remember and raspberry leaf is to relax. Embrace it. It’s always been with you. You are your shadow self now.

About the inspiration:

Kalila Stormfire’s Economical Magic Services is an ongoing urban fantasy podcast written by Lisette Alvarez and produced by Stormfire Productions. It was made for people who enjoy tales of meddling love goddesses, witches talking to their familiars, and the limits of magick. This story is about how we deal with failure—individually and collectively—and how sometimes our shadows don’t quite take the shape we expect.

You can follow this rad podcast on Twitter @KalilaStormfire and find more information on the Kalila Stormfire website!

Ingredients: Aged black tea (dark tea), pine smoked tea (lapsang souchong), rosemary, raspberry leaf

Approximately 65mg of caffeine per cup

Steep at 212° F for 3-5 min, or as dark as you dare.

Grabbed a sample of this from the last TTB. The content is mostly fluffy sage. The flavor is surprisingly more thin and mild than I expected. I would definitely overleaf if I had enough for a second cup. I taste the sage and a bit of smokiness, but the tea base is a bit weak to my tastes. It’s also a bit more savory/herbaceous than I prefer, but I do find the idea of this one to be fun.

Twilight Princess. I cannot think of anything else but that game when I see the name of this tea. This is a very herbaceous tea. The wet lead aroma is incredibly complex. The rosemary is easy to pick out (especially because I love it) but the rest merge into an amalgamation of herby goodness. The flavor kind of knocks your socks off too. So much going on in my mouth. Herbs, herbs, herbs. Rosemary, sage, slight oregano, and thyme. The pu er is a great base for this but the earthy base remains cautiously hidden.

TTB 2022
Well this is interesting, mostly rosemary notes. It doesn’t seem that this mixes very well, the raspberry leaves are very light and float to the top of the mixture. I shook the bag to try and distribute, but I still don’t think I scooped a good mix. It brews up dark, and I can distinguish the underlying puerh, but mostly this is smoky rosemary. Typically I like to mix my shou with peppermint, but I might try throwing a tiny tiny bit of rosemary in there too.

Wow, that sounds really interesting. I’m looking at this vendor now; I have never heard of them previously but there’s some really intriguing blends here here.
