- August Uncommon
The iris has been the favorite flower of royalty and artists for centuries. One of the most intriguing iris depictions is found in the graceful curves of Georgia O’Keeffe’s paintings. Inspired by this history and art, this tea evokes the unmistakable scent of iris: an accord of lime blossom and creamy vanilla.
At first, the bright acidity of peach and lime dominate. The next sip deepens with the velvetiness of roasted oolong with peach and rose notes that linger. Adding milk introduces pistachio and white chocolate flavors. Chilling this tea deepens its earthiness to bring out roasted peach and rose notes. Savor this tea for an experience as mysterious and elegant as the intoxicating spring flower.
