It's rough out there for a hero. You fight monsters all day long, exhausting your life bar, conquering your pig of a boss, and running around in (pursuit of) triangles, and yet your sassy love interest may be too busy fighting their *own* battles to give you a little smooch. Buck up, hero. You'll get that smooch someday, but in the meantime, raise your spirits with this triforce blend of wisdom-blossoming apricot ceylon, power-mongering wild strawberry, and a courageous dose of blood orange, accented by an extra kick of hibiscus, green lemon balm, and golden marigold flowers. Don't like it? Well excuuuuse me, tea princess! (UPDATE 05/21/11: My original blend contained strawberry ceylon, but as this flavor seems to be constantly out of stock, wild strawberry now makes an herbally flavorsome replacement.)

This tea contains a low level of caffeine | Steep at 212° for 4 minutes.

The year was 1989. The day was Friday. Every week, like cartoon clockwork, a wee lass rushed home to heed the siren call of The Legend of Zelda, the animated television series. Based on the extra-popular video game -- but not by much -- the Zelda cartoon was camp-cheese incarnate, and the aforementioned wee lass *ate it up* with a legendary camp-spoon. Of course, Link's sarcastically omnipresent TV catchphrase, 'Well excuuuuuuuuuse me, princess,' soon entered the campy archives of gaming and cartoon history, and that sort of nonsense rightly deserves a blend from this now-grown-up wee lass, like, yesterday. (Artistic props to KittyPaint from deviantART for drawing the base of Link's cartoon interpretation used on the label here.)
