David is complicated. This man of darkness and smoke has a bitterness inside him from all the things the world has done to him, but there is a secret sweetness about him, hidden under it as well. The tragedy of David is that he is so much more than he seems, but you need to take the time to bring it out of him.
Just like his tea.
This tea is smoky, with a bold and dark bitterness up front from the deeply earthy leaves. Underneath it all, easy to miss if you never look for it, is the sweet and slightly tart tang of cherries and cranberries, waiting to be unlocked with the smallest hint of sugar if you are kind enough to add it to his cup. (Please, do. But just a dash.)
