lProduct Description

If wafts of cinnamon, rose & cloves catch you unawares when you are alone in the woods, take care as the legend goes they are the telltale scents that a vampire is nearby!

 

Chief Mixologist Krisi says: 'After chatting to our fans about their favourite books to enjoy with a good cuppa (for the Bookworm Collection) I realised that fantasy, sci fi & in particular vampire literature was being mentioned a lot!

 

A fan of this genre myself I wanted to create a unique blend that would reflect the legend & folklore around the vampire attachment to scent & aroma. According to many of our favourite books vampires have a distinct scent - Cinnamon, cloves & rose. (Where as a vampire can always tell if a human is nearby as they smell aromas of honey, chamomile & lemon thyme!).

 

Inspiration taken from the best vampire sources: All Souls Trilogy, Lost Boys, Twilight & True Blood!'

 

Top Brewing Tip: This aromatic green tea is great enjoyed hot (don't forget to use 80 degree water when brewing, to avoid bitterness) or iced with a splash of apple juice!

Spicy and Floral Balance

This tea was a surprise hit. The strong spicy flavours are perfectly balanced by the delicate florals. Gorgeous, I hope they bring this one back next year

*****

Hoping these vampires survive

Bought this as a gift for my mums tattoo artist, she had been looking for something healthier and refreshing to drink rather than the usual teas and coffees.
Been drinking this myself since it came out and absolutely love it!

*****

Surprisingly different green tea

I love green tea but I find many blends are so similar. This is brilliant! I wasn’t initially sold on the description, but the rose and clove are not over-powering. It smells beautiful, and the addition of the clove brings a really nice warming feature to the drink. Winner!

*****

Beautiful Gothic blend

The bouquet in this is beautiful and its the first thing you notice. There is a lot of rose in this tea, not a problem for me since I can never have too much rose but if you're looking for something more woody this isn't really the one for you. Cinnamon and cloves give it a lovely spicy undertone. This is definitely a new favorite of mine and not just because of the awesome name.

Lots of roses, not many vampires

It's a nice tea, but as I love spices this one just didn't hit the jackpot for me. Also, there were a bit too many rose petals and as I'm not a fan of flowery teas, I've find them a bit too overpowering especially odour-wise.

*****

Any chance of this in a perfume?

Hands down the best rose infused tea I've ever tasted. This blend is my idea of heaven, and I have tried countless similar blends. What struck me when I opened the package was the strong scent, it actually made my mouth water and I'm looking into ways I can infuse it with oils so I can wear it. Absolutely delicious, warming and other-worldly.

Too much flower

If you’re not big on teas that taste like perfume in anyway, probably not the one for you. Maybe I brewed it wrong or needed to add honey or lemon, but all I could taste was the rose

*****

Leaves you feeling rosey all over

I love a rose flavour tea, so this hits the right spot! I put one teaspoon in my cold tea bottle (it’s a bold flavour) and it’s a lovely refreshing drink. Can’t wait to try it hot!

*****

A Bloody Good Brew!

I bought this because I liked the name, and I was a little concerned about the roses if I’m honest. In reality, it’s a smoky delight, with just enough of a funeral bouquet to make you feel louche and decadent. I love it!

*****

Perfect for cold weather and dark nights

This is Ideal now that the darker nights are just starting to come in. The rose works very well with the winter spices. It'll be my main tea now until late spring.

*****

Yes

This works really well, the cinnamon balances out the rose... Adding this to my regular stock for sure, don't take it away too soon!
