love in idleness

Tastemaker silver badge
created by: Christina De Ville
'The juice of it on sleeping eyelids laid Will make man or woman madly dote Upon the next living creature that it sees.' ------------- While I don't recommend splashing this tea about in people's eyes, this tea is meant to love and be loved. Earl Grey Moonlight provides our love-wounded purple flowers, and the Valentines Tea makes this a warm and smooth brew great for sharing with your beau, or for just a quite 'me night' with your favorite book. Watch out, though, the tartness of the Berry Blast may come back to bite you, as love begot by magic often can in the end!

A Midsummer Night's Tea; Inspired by the Love-in-Idleness flower from Shakespeare's 'A Midsummer Night's Dream'. ------------------------ ----------------------------------------------------------------- 'Yet mark'd I where the bolt of Cupid fell: It fell upon a little western flower, Before milk-white, now purple with love's wound, And maidens call it Love-in-Idleness. Fetch me that flower; The herb I showed thee once : The juice of it on sleeping eyelids laid Will make man or woman madly dote Upon the next living creature that it sees.' ~Oberon
