From Adagio Teas

Nyssa of Traken is at once serene and down to earth, mature and innocent, compassionate, quietly aristocratic, and very smart. (But certainly not one to show off about it.) The grounding flavour of pu erh is met with comforting assam, while a playful ribbon of caramel binds the blend together with a sweet finish. Tastes unassumingly clever, with a quiet resilience, and surprising strength of character.

My face hurts. I think the day’s stress has aggravated my TMJ. At least I don’t have to go anywhere or see anyone until Tuesday. Unless I run out of milk and have to dash to the supermarket, which I will. Let’s pray that I can get away with wearing a sweatshirt and won’t run into anyone I know.

I need resiliency tea. This’ll do nicely. It’s one of my absolute favourite teas in the entire world ever.

Nyssa is such a wonderful combination of restraint, strength of character, complexity, and sweetness. The leaves’ fragrance is unassuming at first, but a little attention reveals layers of earthiness, maltiness, a very very delicate sweetness, a little bit of fresh hay, and just a trace of something nearly reminiscent of fresh dates. A little sugar and milk elevates the caramel flavour, but it is never cloying, and does not overpower. The balance is such that each flavour – the earthy pu erh, the malty assam, the rich, sweet caramel – is allowed to articulate itself in all its dimensions, with quiet strength. I could drink this every day and never tire of it.
