You just might fall in love with this tea! Blended with Phoebe Taylor in mind, this blend combines black tea, oriental spices, and the bright zing of orange with a rooibos jasmine tea. The result is something that smells and tastes spicy, a bit sweet, and very alluring. Expect to taste the spices upon first sip, and then the jasmine to bloom in the aftertaste. Complex, intriguing, and unique just like Marcus's mate, "The Connoisseur" is a celebration of the finest things in life and is meant to be sipped and savored. Deb's Tips: *Steep for 3-5 minutes at 212F * I prefer this tea without milk * A bit of honey or your favorite sweetener will bring out the spicy and floral notes * this tea is excellent iced. The teas in the All Souls Series of fandom blends were created by me to celebrate the characters and places in my novels.This is a signature blend created by Deb Harkness.
