I ordered the toasted sesame flavored tea a while ago, and frankly, I should have ordered this one instead. It’s got a barn smell in the bag that’s sure to bring a smile to the lips of any equestrians, cowboys, or 4-H-ers.
Once steeped, that aroma becomes this warm, enfolding embrace of nuttiness and savory—just like coming home.
Now, as Cogsworth said, ‘You can’t fix it if it’s not baroque.’ There is nothing baroque about this tea, therefore there is nothing that needs to be fixed. I’d call it steampunk rather than baroque, since the brassiness and sesame-salt flavor evoke rust-worn metal, gears and goggles. A distinct copper tone. Or if steampunk isn’t your thing, then this tea will seat you at a harvest feast in a modest abode, cozy with the sense of hearth and home.
