Before he was a man he was a sweet little boy. Before he was a boy, he was something a bit more special: A living wooden puppet. The earthy notes in pu erh dante and almond and cinnamon bark bring out that side, with the last helping capture his unique spark. Then add in the candy apple for his innocence, and you've got yourself something to drink with your dad (or mom!), biological or not~

This kid's had it rough! (and not just from splinters!) First he has adventure after adventure with his dad, then he nearly dies, only to become a real boy. Even that doesn't come without problems: Soon there's a curse heading his way and he has to go through into a world without magic with a baby to look after. That's a lot for just one kid. Throw in abusive foster parents and, soon enough, it's all too much. If it gets to be too much for you, even and especially just with day-to-day hassle, take a tea break. (I have no affiliation with OUAT, it's creators, or any related companies. This blend is made purely for my own enjoyment.)
