Around The Fire
The basis of this tea is the meadowsweet herb. Traditionally known for soothing and protecting the digestive tract. Alongside the companion spices, this tea gently soothes and offers a warm welcome on a winters night.
Meadowsweet can be found in the fourth branch of the welsh legends of Mabinogi. Along with the flowers of Broom and Oak, she was used by the wizards Math and Gwydion to create a beautiful ethereal woman named Blodeuwedd, so the legend goes. Black pepper was an incredibly sought after spice. As early as 1000 BC, traders from Southern Arabia were controlling the trade routes. In order to protect thee, they would create elaborate stories about the perils of sourcing pepper. Who would travel far across the seas just to be attacked by a dragon guarding a pepper pit?
