The tea of autumn

As a humanities teacher, it is not surprising that my free associations are informed by what I read. As soon as I sniffed Santa Fe Sage at Artful Tea, some lines of verse came to mind by Elizabeth Jennings, who one critic says "ranks among the finest British poets of the second half of the twentieth century." In her poem, "Song at the Beginning of Autumn," she writes: "A thin column of smoke stirs from the land / Proving that Autumn gropes for us. [...] I am carried back against / My will into a childhood where / Autumn is bonfires, marbles, smoke." The Lapsang Souchong in Santa Fe Sage accounts for the smoky scent because, as I learned, the leaves are smoke-dried over a pinewood fire. Other ingredients – anise seed, juniper berries, white sage, and cinnamon – bring depth and complexity to a tea that is best on its own rather than with food. If a bonfire of fallen leaves is not possible as the seasons change, then brew Santa Fe Sage and Autumn will grope for you.

Bold and beautiful!

I'm no connoisseur or anything, but Santa Fe Sage is delicious! The flavors are perfectly balanced. Bold but not bitter. The sage leaf gives this a really unique smokey taste, combined with the sweet pepperiness of juniper berry. This is like camping in the woods in a teacup. Highly recommend!
