A close family friend passed away today. My father got to the hospital fifteen minutes after he died, but had already been to visit yesterday, so he’d already seen him and said his goodbyes. My mom was home with me when we got the news. Tea is… a comfort to both of us, and so I suggested making a cup and immediately thought of this. Especially with the name, it seems… fitting for today.
It’s mild, and an interesting mix of flowery and fruity. The overall combination actually reminds me a little of grapes, though there’s none in there. There’s a lot in it, and yet I don’t find it busy — it actually comes forth simple but layered, and completely different than what I’d think with the independent ingredients.
