icarus

Tastemaker platinum badge
created by: Lindsay Lock
Part of my mytholotea series. In Greek mythology, Icarus is the son of the master craftsman Daedalus. Daedalus built the Labyrinth for King Minos of Crete to imprison the Minotaur. However King Minos imprisoned Daedalus and Icarus in the Labyrinth because Daedalus helped Ariadne and Theseus navigate the Labyrinth by giving them a ball of string. In an attempt to escape, Daedalus constructed wings made of feather and wax. He warned Icarus not to fly too close to the sun, but overcome by the joy of flight, Icarus forgot his father's warning. Icarus flew too close to the sun and its rays melted the wax on his wings, resulting in him plummeting to his death. The ocean where he fell still bears his name today, the Icarian Sea near Icaria, an island southwest of Samos. Suggested brewing instructions: 212 degrees for 4 mins.
