Old Growth Alchemy conjures marvelous brews and I’m thrilled to have the Night Circus added to their collection of book-inspired teas. The Night Circus tea contains apple, candied ginger, cinnamon, clove & more and it all blends together to taste like slightly sweet, slightly spicy, slightly smoky magic. This loose leaf tea comes in stunningly beautiful packaging and you can find it over here at Old Growth Alchemy.
“Close your eyes, take a sip, and transport yourself to the magic and mystery of Le Cirque des Rêves. This black spiced tea, made in collaboration with Erin Morgenstern, brings you all the delicacies and delights of the circus in a cup. The brew opens with notes of toasty popcorn from genmaicha which mellow into a delicate grassy note as the black tea and spices take over-like a waft of air from the night darkened fields the black and white tents make their mysterious home in. A delicate swirl of smoke from lapsang souchong curls at the edges of the brew, reminiscent of the bonfire that keeps the magic of the circus alive. Indulge with notes of chocolate, caramel, and spiced apple as though you’ve got your hands full of delicate chocolate mice, caramel drizzled popcorn, and a steaming concoction of spiced cider.
This tea evokes the cozy embrace of autumn and pulls at the strings of nostalgia and longing for a world that is a bit more magical than our day to day. But remember, magic arrives without warning and you can brew yourself up a cozy cup any time you wish-no tents required. Don your brightest red alongside your fellow Rêveurs, and taste what the circus has in store for you.”
