"Grinding teeth, and iron claw

Skin and bone she’ll tear and gnaw

Born of earthy cavern’s maw

Black Annis roams the night

 

Huntress, hag, that’s child fed

Skin of blue so cold and dead 

Lock the doors and stay in bed

Or face her chilling bite" - Devin Forst

Sense Notes: Mint / Anise / Bergamot

Caffeinated Tea Blend

Inspired by old English folklore of the ancient blue-skinned hag Black Annis, who was said to live within an earthen cave in the Dane Hills of Leicestershire. I have joined with artist Devin Forst to bring the chill and dark of Black Annis to you all! There is a dark and wintery quality to this tea blend, appropriate for a long and eerie winter’s night…companioned by the hag brewed up from Devin's imagination for your delight and torment.
Anise seed, mint, and bergamot swirl together for a highly aromatic and appropriately wintry top note that is grounded in rich black tea and the light slightly floral quality of oolong. Butterfly pea flower and cornflower give us her characteristic blue tinge to the blend that fade as they brew, like the light fades on those early winter nights.

Recommend infusion of 1-2 tablespoon of loose tea per 8 oz of hot water and infusing for at least 5 minutes. The flavors and scent will change the longer it steeps, so be sure to take some time while your brew infuses to experience the journey.

 

Be sure to check our Devin's artwork to pick up a full sized copy of the illustration (of which you will get a sample on the tea label) over in his shop. You can pick up this new Black Annis illustration or some of the many gorgeous and sinister folkloric images he has conjured up from all year round.
