helen burns

Tastemaker silver badge
created by: Hannah S.
A blend of white teas with an accent of lavender. I chose soft, sweet, light and airy teas because of the nature of the character. For though strong in character and wisdom, Helen is muted by her surroundings and leaves the story quite young.

steep at 195° for 3 mins
Inspired by the character Helen Burns of Charlotte Bronte's fictional autobiography Jane Eyre. One of the most sweetly powerful characters of the book. “I was silent; Helen had calmed me; but in the tranquility she imparted there was an alloy of inexpressible sadness. I felt the impression of woe as she spoke, but I could not tell whence it came; and when, having done speaking, she breathed a little fast and coughed a short cough, I momentarily forgot my own sorrows to yield to a vague concern for her.' - Jane Eyre
