Smoky, toasty, with undercurrents of coco, minerals, and green tobacco, this blend captures Rumpelstiltskin during his darkest hours. Add a pinch of cinnamon and you get the hot sparkle and kick of his powers! Still have to supply your own glitter, though.

High caffeine | Steep at 175° for 3 minutes.

ingredients & lore

blended with yerba mate, toasted mate, yunnan jig tea & wuyi ensemble tea

teas: yerba mate, mambo, toasted mate

accented with cinnamon spice

Through much of his life, Rumpelstiltskin had a source of light: First baelfire, then belle... This tea takes on the other half, where the deal-maker took out his anger and pain on those he made deals with (as opposed to just giving himself the better side of a deal). Even if you don't have a deep, painful darkness in your life, a good cup of tea can help you feel better. Best enjoyed at a spinning wheel, to help you forget. (I have no affiliation with OUAT, it's creators, or any related companies. This blend is made purely for my own enjoyment.)
