Satyr Dreams

Standard

Tea of the Day: Satyr Dreams by Dryad Tea

Description: The dreams of Satyrs have long been speculated to be great things full of whimsy and beauty. This tea was created to embody those dreams in deep black teas and floral notes with a very light undertone of hazelnut.

Dry tea smells like dried roses

Liquor is a light chestnut brown in the cup

Steeped tea actually doesn’t have much of smell and its flavor is very mild. Floral and sweet. This tea needs more time to steep than you would think, as the longer it steeps, the better the flavor is. I noticed that the flavor got stronger towards the bottom of the cup, but I think steeping it for a full 5 minutes instead of just 3 would have the same effect.

Tea Rating.: 4/5


 

They say:

“Put down roots”

Or

“Go back to your roots”

In such tones that imply that this is always a good thing

 

Like any other blanket statement,

this idea is flawed.

 

Adapting to change and growing

sometimes means moving “uprooting” if you will

This is an important part of life

 

Also, going back to where you came from

…when where you came from almost killed you…

Is not what I’d call “a good thing”

 

And sometimes,

(more than we’re usually comfortable admitting)

we put down roots on empty air

and only think that we’re secure
