Part of my mytholotea series. Boreas was the Greek god of the cold north wind and the bringer of winter. His name meant 'North Wind' or 'Devouring One'. Boreas is depicted as being very strong, with a violent temper to match. He was frequently shown as a winged old man with shaggy hair and beard, holding a conch shell and wearing a billowing cloak. Boreas was closely associated with horses. He was said to have fathered twelve colts after taking the form of a stallion. Boreas was also said to have kidnapped Oreithyia, an Athenian princess. Boreas had taken a fancy to Oreithyia, and had initially pleaded for her favours, hoping to persuade her. When this failed, he reverted to his usual temper and abducted her as she danced on the banks a river. Boreas wrapped Oreithyia up in a cloud, raped her, and with her, Boreas fathered two sons—the Boreads, Zethes and Calais—and two daughters— Khione, goddess of snow, and Cleopatra. Suggested brewing instructions: 200° for 3 minutes.

This tea contains a moderate level of caffeine | Steep at 205° for 3 minutes.
