Tea Notes: Rich / Toasty / Lavender
Caffeinated Tea Blend
Made in collaboration with Monica Robinson based on her novella to rule the desert, this tea blend of the same name brings this desert gothic to your cup. A bold and rich black tea curls with smoke from lapsang souchong as the toasty flavor of hojicha offers up something of the dusty heat and haze of the desert. A kiss of lavender swirls through each steeped cup as an ode to the sapphic lovers. Let this tea coax you along as each word drips off the page and onto your tongue.
After a journey that brings new knowledge and resurfaces old memories, Quinn and Ava discover that they might be missing a few sentences from their collective narrative — a fact which threatens to bring about the downfall of them both.
Explore the classic tale of Orpheus and Eurydice as reimagined through a queer lens in a desert gothic landscape from poet and writer Monica Robinson, as she weaves a world of desert haze, fever dreams, and literary impossibility.
The flavors and scent will change as the tea steeps, so be sure to take some time while your brew infuses to experience the journey.
Black tea, lapsang souchong, hojicha, and lavender.
