I need a base, and Assam Melody will do nicely. It is deep, dark, and impenetrable; its secrets whisper in inscrutable harmony. I add the caramel-chocolate flavor of Tiger Eye. The luscious flavor is warm and comforting. Nothing lulls quite like the familiar. Beneath it all, though, something lingers sharp and sweet. It shines at the edges of your perception, tenuous and disconcerting. Blood Orange.
This is my design.
This blend was inspired by Bryan Fuller's Hannibal, but is connected to it in no way, shape, or form. It was created solely for my own enjoyment. The label was designed by Kristy Cornell, who was kind enough to indulge me during a Hannibal marathon.
For best results, this blend should be brewed at 212 degrees for 3-4 minutes.
