A blend of white teas with an accent of lavender. I chose soft, sweet, light and airy teas because of the nature of the character. For though strong in character and wisdom, Helen is muted by her surroundings and leaves the story quite young.
Inspired by the character Helen Burns of Charlotte Bronte's fictional autobiography Jane Eyre. One of the most sweetly powerful characters of the book.
“I was silent; Helen had calmed me; but in the tranquility she
imparted there was an alloy of inexpressible sadness. I felt the
impression of woe as she spoke, but I could not tell whence it came;
and when, having done speaking, she breathed a little fast and
coughed a short cough, I momentarily forgot my own sorrows to yield
to a vague concern for her.' - Jane Eyre
