Part of my mytholotea series. Medusa is often known as simply a monster, described as having the face of a hideous female with living venomous snakes in place of hair. However, Medusa was originally a ravishingly beautiful maiden, 'the jealous aspiration of many suitors,' but when she was caught being raped by Poseidon in Athena's temple, the enraged Athena transformed Medusa's beautiful hair to serpents and made her face so terrible to behold that the mere sight of it would turn onlookers to stone. Sadly, Medusa's sisters, Stheno and Euryale, suffered the same fate. Suggested brewing instructions: 212 degrees for 5 mins.
This is a decaf tea | Steep at 212° for 5 minutes.
