Mila the Skilla is a punky sprite who may seem intimidating, but she's really full of heart. This rich tea has molasses and carmel flavors within the Assam blend but the wild cherries give it a bit of tartness. Sharp and complex like Mila is herself.

Moderate caffeine | Steep at 205° for 3 minutes.

“Nathanial followed Spassel’s eyeline to an empty desk a couple of rows back, next to a girl described, from Nathanial’s limited experience, in two words as punk rock. He was a little shocked by her look, having never seen such a thing in person and forgot to blink as he accidentally checked her out. Mila had lots of necklaces bunched up between the two top unbuttoned shredded collars of her shirt and blazer. It seemed like every piece of her uniform had met a similar fate from scissors, only to be pinned back together with assortments of crab pincers, twisted metal, or colorful string. The black leggings under her gray skirt met with high boots, and the rings on almost every finger passed silkily through long black razor-cut hair. Her eyelids and irises were purple and there was a shade of maroon within her lips. There were deep purples in her skin tone around her hairline and fingernails.” Excerpt From: T.C. Chappell. “The Hyperion Secret.” iBooks.
